So if you have been eagerly waiting to steal the trends from the LFW Winter/Festive edit, your wait is over. Lakme Fashion Week just happened and left some alluring trends for us to pick up.
The Winter/Festive edit spearheaded on 22nd Aug and celebrated creativity, art, and innovation in full swing.
Urvashi Joneja presented her collection “Away” which conveyed the image of flying away to break away from the glass ceiling.
Her collection was all about graphics which contained small fragments coming from the shattering of the surface, tied together in visuals of a flying bird. It was a bright collection in the color palette of reds, blues, yellows, and purples. Layering was the focal point of her collection.
Rhea Chakraborty was the muse for the designer. She walked the ramp in a gorgeous black gown which had 3D applique details.
Abraham & Thakore
So the designer duo completed their 25 years’ long and beautiful journey as fashion designers recently. They presented their latest seasonal line up for the very first time at LFW. The collection wore an interesting title “Cocktails and Samosas” and took inspiration from Eastern aesthetics of wrapping/tying bakus, sarongs and kimonos teamed up with Indian staples like churidars, salwars, etc.
The sophisticated Banarsi weaves, hand cut silks, embroidered tussars, and sequins were the central point of the collection. The line up had metallic gold shades.
Designers Ishanee Mukherjee and Anirudh Chawla present their collection “The Dark Cloud” at the event. It was a mix of cottons, organza crushed and crinkled depicting volume. The prints for the line-up were hand-painted in hues of indigo.
Soha Ali Khan was the showstopper for the show who walked the ramp in a sheer top and skirt from the label.
The Royal collection titled “Millennial Maharanis” is what Nachiket Barve presented at LKW. He tried to showcase the wardrobe trends of the royals during the 20s and the 30s. He amalgamated these trends with the present sartorial styles of modern day bride squad.
His ensembles looked rich but were feather light and flowy. He used a lot of age-old crafting techniques like applique, beading, gota embroidery, resham embroidery in florals transpiring into lehengas, gowns, long coats, jackets, etc.
The very gorgeous Jhanvi Kapoor was the showstopper for the designer who wore a lehenga in blue and pink.
Amit Aggarwal is known for his eco-friendly fabrics and structured silhouettes. It was his debut at the LKW. Patterns of sequins, ribbed fabrics, and symmetric lines marked the collection. There was a futuristic sheen in his line-up.
Shahid Kapoor and Disha Patani walked the ramp as showstoppers for the designer.
So this was the first set of designers that we spotted at the LFW this season. Stay tuned for the next part.
