Lakme Fashion Week - What We Loved!
Kareena Kapoor Khan for Sabyasachi
Unless you were stuck in mars you could not have missed the news of Begum Khan showing off her pregnancy glow in this gorgeous gold thread work kurti with a sheer lehenga. She kept the accessories to a minimum sans the maang tika.
Sabyasachi’s collection showcased beautiful shades of pastels and neutral colours
Plus size by Shilpa Chavan a.k.a Little Shilpa
A first of its kind, this year’s LFW had a refreshing spin of plus sized models who proved that beauty can’t be confined to a thin waist size. The collection comprised of daily wear and uber trendy clothes. What’s interesting is that all the modes were selected through an audition.
The opening show of this season was by Ace designer Tarun Tahiliani and was very well received by the connoisseurs of the fashion industry. His collection celebrated earth tones and mostly comprised of everyday wear.
Sumona’s collection was boastful of interesting prints and cuts and is perfect for the upcoming diwali season. It was a perfect blend of ethnic attire with modern Indian fusion wear. Long jackets, crop tops, floor length skirts took the centre stage.
Ashish N Soni
As mentioned by us in our previous article, this year brings back the vibes from the 70’s and 80’s. It was titled ‘Voltomatic’ and gave its undivided attention to monochromes, defined layers,boxy silhouettes, oversized jackets and those every famous voluminous hairstyles. The show was concluded by Jacqueline Fernandes.
The Label by Ritu Kumar
Her collection are one of the few that easy makes a slip from the ramp to our closets. It took inspiration from sportswear and showcased models walking the ramps with tennis rackets. It consisted of shirt dresses and off shoulder tops (yes yes we predicted this as well!) and had Kriti Sanon as the showstopper and she looked spectacular
Shantanu and Nikhil
The designers for this years Lakme Fashion Week held their menswear and women’s collection separately as they were inspired from two different stories. The women’s line ‘Matador’s Mistress’ as per the name drew inspiration from the spanish culture. Ruffles velvet and lace dresses took centre stage and we soaked in all the drama. Malaika Arora was the show stopper.
