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

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

Day 3 at Lakme Fashion Week continued with collections from Sounia Gohil, Bhairavi Jaikishan and ┬áRajat K Tangri. Sounia Gohil Sounia Gohil's collection had quite a few hits and misses. I love the ombre sort of watercolour effect. The oddly placed patterns don't work for some of the dresses though. And a black legging for the finale was just too old. The silhouettes in this collection are really good and universally flattering, I wish the focus was more on that.   Bhairavi Jaikishan Bhairavi Jaikishan's collection had beautiful sarees and shararas in the…Read more

There were a lot of glamorous collections on day 2 of Lakme Fashion Week. I'll be reviewing collections from Komal Sood, Shehlaa and Rocky Star. Komal Sood Komal Sood's collection was quite blingy with the sequined dresses and separates. But I liked the softer pieces like the grey and pink satin draped dress. The finale iridescent gown has a lovely mother of pearl type effect.   Shehlaa This collection was very romantic and a bit of a boudoir vibe. I really didn't like the hair and styling for this collection but same cannot…Read more

Day 2 at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2013 was extraordinary with stunning collections from Aarti Vijay Gupta, Nikhil Thampi and Nupur Kanoi. Aarti Vijay Gupta This was a um.. very geographical collection. Very quirky, I loved it! Using collage of stamps and maps of India it was a very nostalgic collection. Any fashion foward geography teachers who might perhaps want to don the map trousers?   Nikhil Thampi I like the cleanness of Nikhil Thampi's collection. The sheer layers draped over look very elegant. I love the sheer black and white print jacket…Read more

Day 3 of Lakme Fashion Week saw collections from Sailex, Krishna Mehta and Swapnil Shinde. Sailex The Sailex collection is very modern and chic. The tones are muted and soft, the overall look, very feminine. I love the satin full buttoned dress with embroidery and a collar. The brown sequined sheer stripped dress is also stunning.   Krishna Mehta Krishna Mehta's collection showed a crazy mix of patterns and bright colours. I love the full skirts   Swapnil Shinde Swapnil Shinde's collection had a tribal sci-fo look. It's an interesting concept but I…Read more
