So close yet so far. That is so true for the Lakme Fashion Week. The end of the Lakme Fashion Week is just a day away but with so many talented designer lined up to showcase the beauty of their designs. The line up for 4th and 5th day was the one I think every fashion enthu was eager to lay their eyes upon. And it was not only about the line up but also about all the celebrity who walked for their favourite designers which was even more special to witness.
Day 4 saw designers like Saaksha and Kinni, our favourite Anushree Reddy, studio Verandah, Shriya Som, Payal Singhal, along with the refreshing bright designer Nishika Lulla, house of Kotwara, and last but not the least Shantanu and Nikhil. I mean who wouldn’t die to see the amazingly crazy line up of the most talented designers of the fashion fraternity.
Saaksha & Kinni
It was a print galore for the Saaksha and Kinni collection. It was all about prints and eye popping colors. No matter where you take your eyes they would only spot stripes and more and more stripes. Their were green stripes, red oranges and yes how can we forget the WHITE CHAPPALS! That is too typically north indian to describe it like that but it actually is the right way, I think.
Just like their names, it was like a walking verandah on the ramp. It was very flowery and floral and so fresh and breezy like beautiful a verandah decorated with beautiful flowers and their green leaves. We spotted some yellows, greens, orange , beige and so many other other lovely colors.
It was all about sarees and lehengas in a wedding kinda vibe. Her collection was the perfect fit for a wedding ensemble and which is not even too expensive and at the same time very gorgeous designs. She chose a very classy muse for a classy collection, Sania Mirza. She walked on the ramp with so much poise and panache that one could not take their eyes off her. She was wearing a peach lehenga and looking extremely pretty. The tennis beauty rocked the runway.
She ruffled the entire ramp. Her entire collection was all about the ruffled gown. Their were mirror dresses, mini dresses, tie from front pants, crop tops and so many other outfits. It was a minimally gorgeous collection. There were not many things going on with the collection but at the same time it wasn’t evening boring or something that we have seen before. Her muse was Disha Patani, who glamoursly walked the runway in a totally tremendous ruffle party gown in ivory color.
She brought magic to the ramp, it was so elegant seeing her designs and so regal. It was such a splendid sight. Aditi Rao Hydari walked for her in a gold and rust pink lehenga carrying the aura of the Queen of Khilji from Padmavati. It was a tremendous effort by Payal to bring the aura of elegance and royalty on the ramp and make it come to life in her outfits.
House of Kotwara
Lets just pause and let the fact sink in our brains that former Miss Universe, Sushmita Sen walked the ramp for her. She was looking like a very gorgeous bride. So beautiful it was sight that no-one would want to miss for anything. It was all about the real beauty in our heritage of beautiful linens and dupattas. The collection was simply about our heritage and our pride. And in pastel hues the collection came out to be a true delight for the eyes.
