This is incredibly late! But here’s my take on Lakme Fashion Week : Winter Festive 2013! They really need to get a grip on the nomenclature though!
We start off with Manish Malhotra, Nikhil Thampi and Vijay Balhara! ^_^
Bling aside, this collection had a very sleek modernity to it. You can see it in the panelling , colour blocking which is not neon and a nice play with sheer layers. I love the taupe and moss green pieces. Velvet blouses with a intricate but not overwhelming lehenga looked very chic as well.
Reinventing the saree with separates is how I’d describe this. I love the gold print and the simple blouse. The finale piece is definitely a show stopper. I also loved the deep v neck one with cut outs at the waist.
I felt a bit meh in the beginning but that beige dress with faux fur and embellishments really took it up a notch. I think the sheer polka dots and mint colours kept this collection more youthful. But it is without a doubt one of the more wearable collections.
