Amit Aggarwal graduated from the National Institute of Fashion Technology, New Delhi in 2002. He trained himself with some of the best design houses the world over until he started his eponymous label in 2012.
His debut fashion show at India Fashion Week was heralded as one of the best shows by Vogue India, while Marie Claire India and Elle India both announced him as the best young Indian designer. He was invited by the Dutch DFA to Amsterdam to be part of a design delegation, and is a finalist for the British Council’s Young Creative Entrepreneur Award.
The label combines the best of locally sourced factors with a progressive aesthetic, resulting in precisely executed garments which represent the metamorphosis of raw influences, both fantastical and mundane. The results are pieces which are modern and eclectic, yet hold a timeless appeal.
His work was exhibited at the Arken Museum in Copenhagen showcasing the future of Art and Fashion from August 2012 till January 2013. In the same year he was invited by TED in India for a talk on fashion, its future and his journey so far.
After a series of showcases in Paris and India, Amit Aggarwal started his much loved diffusion line under AM.IT, an eclectic mix of organic and manmade textiles with very contemporary styling.
He showcases both his lines on the international fashion calendar in Paris and currently retails in 16 countries through the worlds best luxury stores.
The core of Amit Aggarwal couture lies in moulding and freezing amorphous forms into structures made utilising industrial materials. They are thoroughly transformed by hand done techniques into intricate garments with a definite shape, which further beautifies a woman’s figure.
AM.IT, the ready to wear aims is to explore traditional weaving and printing textile arts from the indian subcontinent and make it relevant by superimposing it with unconventional materials and industrial waste. Amit in Hindi means eternal.
