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
India Couture Week 2014

India Couture Week 2014

So I'm probably the last person writing about India Couture Week 2014 and it took me while to do this mainly because I had other posts scheduled. I really really wish the fashion timetable in India was more streamlined. It just feels so chaotic with the sponsor names and dates. I also wish there was a nice centralized website where I can get all the latest info. Sort of like WWD or Style.com for Indian Fashion. Recently, I did find fashionfad.in which has a nice archive of all designers and good photos. Vogue.in…Read more

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 1 : Masaba, Shivan & Narresh and Manish Malhotra

Day 1 at Lakme Fashion Week concluded with amazing collections from Masaba, Shivan & Narresh and Manish Malhotra! Masaba Masaba's collection was very chic.

I also love the sheer blouse with the "fitted" saree.   Shivan & Narresh I absolutely adore this collection. Every piece flows into the next so well. My favourites is the coral polka dotted top with the high-waisted turquoise skirt. I also loved the swimsuits ¬†in this…Read more

WIFW Fall 2013 RTW : Day 3 : Abraham & Thakore, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Manish Malhotra

The final collections on Day 3 of Will's Lifestyle India Fashion Week were from Abraham & Thakore, Rajesh Pratap Singh and Manish Malhotra. Abraham & Thakore The much awaited Abraham & Thakore collection had a engaging palette with reds, fuschia's and more earthy colours. The saree's looked simplistic but grand. The cross weaved design gave a nice texture and sheen to the pieces. But the silhouettes look very contemporary.   Rajesh Pratap Singh This collection had the ethnic hipster look. Bold prints and embroidery with layering and interesting motifs. The collection will be…Read more
