Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 : Day 4 & 5

The final installment of Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014. You can view the previous posts here and here. The final two days were packed with glamorous collections and exquisite work on show from Manish Malhotra, Vikram Phadnis, Anushree Reddy and JADE by Monica & Karishma. Some were more contemporary like Ridhi Mehra, Payal Singhal which I really liked. I also loved Anushree Reddy's collection with florals and sheer fabrics with beadwork. It has a very delicate look.   Manish Malhotra   Shantanu & Nikhil   Shehla Khan   JADE by Monica & Karishma…Read more

Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 : Day 2 & Day 3

Hello here! So happy it's a holiday today! 3-day weekends should be a permanent thing! Anyway, here's part 2 of the Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 collections. It's pick of some of my favourite ones from Day 2 and 3. There was a lot of festive wear as well.  Most notable for me were Anita Dongre, Divya Seth and probably Soumitra Mondal.   Anita Dongre Day 2 ended with the Anita Dongre show which was so stunning, I really like it when work is intricate and not too heavy, this was perfect. I also…Read more

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…Read more
LFW Winter Festive 2013 : Manish Malhotra, Nikhil Thampi and Vijay Balhara

LFW Winter Festive 2013 : Manish Malhotra, Nikhil Thampi and Vijay Balhara

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! ^_^ Manish Malhotra 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…Read more

LFW Summer/Resort 2013 RTW : Day 5 : Archana Kochhar, Shantanu & Nikhil and Namrata Joshipura

The final day of Lakme Fashion Week and this post is long overdue. Unfortunately, I was really ill almost the entire week and didn't manage to do much on my blog. But I really missed it and I'm back with a bang! With a stunning finale from Namrata Joshipura and collections from Archana Kochhar and Shantanu & Nikhil. Archana Kochhar Archana Kochhar's collection has a good urban vibe about it. I like the monochrome prints with the neon colours in sheer breezy silhouettes. Definitely feels very spring/summer. I love the bright fuschia dress…Read more

LFW Summer/Resort 2013 RTW : Day 5 : Kaabia & Sasha, Nitya and Vijay Balhara

The final day, day 5 of Lakme fashion Week was held a lot of anticipation. People were really synced to see Namrata Joshipura's collection but till then, collections from Kaabia & Sasha, Nitya and Vijay Balhara proved to be great as well. Kaabia & Sasha The jewellery in this collection had a tribal vibe to it. But all the statement pieces were so gorgeous. My favourites were actually the rings. Enormous and never seen anything like them before.   Nitya This collection featured fun summer separates layered along with chunky jewellery. I didn't…Read more

LFW Summer/Resort 2013 RTW : Day 4 : Purvi Doshi, Soumitra Mondal and Vaishali S

Day 4 at Lakme Fashion Week begin with a bang with gorgeous collections from Purvi Doshi, Soumitra Mondal and Vaishali S. Purvi Doshi Purvi Doshi's collection kept the oufit's simple and comfortable for summers. But the added charm was the not too overpowering colourful embroidery. Everyone own's something vintage in this style but to see it applied to a new silhouette is amazing. All the dresses have a nice casual ease to them. Soumitra Mondal Soumitra Mondal's collection was a treat for women who love pink! The patterns were delicate and the sarees…Read more

LFW Summer/Resort 2013 RTW : Day 4 : Agnimitra Paul, Farah and Firdos and Vikram Phadnis

Just one more day of Lakme Fashion Week left! On day 4, however, collections from Agnimitra Paul, Farah and Firdos and Vikram Phadnis made a lasting impression. Agnimitra Paul Agnimitra Paul had a collection with a pretty vine and leaf print mashed up in multiple colours. The collection had simpler pieces sa well like the opening black dress with pink lining and an embroidered top. An anarkali with a green hoodie was the best piece.   Farah and Firdos Farah and Firdos presented a collection with mainly statement pieces. Those ranged from a…Read more

LFW Summer/Resort 2013 RTW : Day 4 : Gaurav Jai Gupta, Daniel and Gaurang

Day 4 at Lakme Fashion Week continued with collections from Gaurav Jai Gupta, Daniel and Gaurang. Gaurav Jai Gupta Gaurav Jai Gupta's collection endeared to the folks to prefer spring with muted tones. The mix of patterns in complementary hades and comfortable silhouettes made this collection very understated. This collection may not scream the loudest but it has a definite charm to it.   Daniel Daniel's collection seemed very austere and simplistic in comparison to the flair of LFW's other collections. But possibly, inspired by rural life, The outfits stayed true to that…Read more

As day 3 of Lakme Fashion Week came to a close, collections from Shikha & Vinita, Munkee.See.Munkee.Soo and Rimi Nayak! I think day 3 had some really diverse and quirky collections. Shikha & Vinita I love the colour palette of the Shikha & Vinita collection. Whenever you say spring, you have an abundance of pastels, neons and warm colours. It was nice to see periwinkle blue, more tonal greens and white in the mix. It looked very calming! This collection features some really amazing design elements and applique as well! I love the…Read more
