Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 : Preview & Day 1

Lakme Fashion week is(was) here! It’s a nice precursor to the main big 4 fashion weeks next month.

In this post I’ll be covering some of the collections that I liked from the preview and Day 1. I’m so glad that this time round they also had four Pakistani designers! Zara Shahjahan designs such beautiful romantic pieces.

 

 

Amit Aggarwal

Amit Aggarwal’s collection was instantly recognizable with his futuristic touch. Not sure why people kept labeling it as tribal, but for me it had that insect inspiration. The volume and sheen of the vinyl like material really took the collection to another level. The jewel tones also kept the collection vibrant. In the sea of bridal shows, this one stands out. Even so, there were a couple of outfits that stood out in a bad way. The black tape fringe dress was too much of a Project-Runway-Unconventional-Challenge kind of dress, not very inspiring or bold as I had hoped.

Masaba

Masaba continued with her casual approach to ready to wear with prints. This time round they were retro but a bit more updated. I like the texture and almost an embossing of sorts on the prints. The pastel colours keep the collection very youthful. I also love the deep neck and lean silhouettes.

Anju Modi

This collection was also shown at India Couture Week 2014. I love the embroidery and details. The red and cream anarkali, the navy pieces, all are incredibly gorgeous. It’s one of those shows where you also know you’ll be blown away. The lehengas are so intricately made, it very much belongs ar Couture Week.

Yogesh Chaudhary

There was only one collection that made everyone happy. You get 2 guesses. The sunflowers had an unexpected effect on everyone. Something quite simple but that sheer white saree with the sunflower draped across the front is iconic. I also love all the odd silhouettes like the hot coral dress with high low pleats and a grey sunflower print. The jumpsuit, the fitted blue dress, so simplistically delightful. That pink and orange saree just screams out spring!

Zara Shahjahan

It’s something that’s also synonymous with Anushree Reddy’s collection, simple florals with high end work. I really like the mix. It has that soft romanticism with the florals and the beading, sequins and embroidery to lift it up from being too basic. I love the saree with the sequins scattered throughout.

Sania Maskatya

There’s something very resort about this collection. The printed pants and vests are what really called out to me in this collection.

Rizwan Beyg

I love the contemporary prints in this collection. It’s drawn from everywhere and yet it looks unique. The colours are bright and spot on in placement. I didn’t care much for the finale tutu skirt dress but those shorts in the opening outfit are everything!

Kristy De Cunha

I suppose she’s relatively new but her inspiration here was obvious – Frida Kahlo. I almost wish it wasn’t so literal but the amount of work done on these outfits deserves recognition. I love the blue and red blouse and that wonderful colour heavy skirt. On the cheeky side, I liked the use of sequins to create that iconic brow. Clearly, brow pencils aren’t doing what they’re supposed to. 😉
