DAY 5!!!!! Mixed feeling though, the excitement to see what is there for us on the closing day of the first fashion festival of the year 2018, but also the last day and then the plethora of the outfits-craziness of the runway would come to an end. But looking at all the four days, this time it was a mixed sort of collection, we say casual every day outfits, to wedding lehengas and sarees, to evening gowns, mini dresses and almost little bit of everything.
2018 is definitely the most promising year by far, from the first week of this year we have being seen everything in fashion that could make our minds go bamboozled. Which in reality is great, earlier there were so many fashion weeks, or so many award shows to even write about let alone witness. Lakme fashion week is just another example of how promising this year really is.
Talking about the line up for the closing day of LFW; Jayanti Reddy, Ridhi Mehra, Shyamal & Bhumika, Vineet Rahul and Anamika Khanna. But it was a star studded day. All we say was Bollywood Divas closing it for the designer in a very elegant and glamorous way. They surely made the closing day extremely special and memorable. These divas made sure that the Lakme Fashion Week ended on a high note.
She had a lot to showcase. Her collection had a wee bit of every thing. We saw Ira Dubey walking the runway in a printed saree. Then we saw belted ivory saree with fringes, saree with faux feathers along with embellished blouses and embellished jackets. We saw Mini Mathur walking the runway for her. And that is not how she ended the tone for her collection was set just right, black and blue was what she chose for her collection. But that is not it, Ridhi Mehra had Pooja Hegde doing the closing walk for her summer collection.
Her collection was in a short the perfect collection for desi brides who want to have some fun. Ivory lehengas with heavily embroidered peplum jacket with such intricate details. The jackets took our minds over, I mean we have seen a lot of lehengas in 2018 fashion week but its the jacket that made our heads turn. She nailed it with such serene colours that you just wanted to see more. And, Shilpa Shetty played the perfect muse for her collection. Shilpa was seen wearing heavily embellished lehenga along with Reddy’s signature jacker and dupatta with ruffles around the side. She looked ethereal and absolutely flawless.
Shyamal & Bhumika
It was glitz and glam for them, their collection again had everything. The collection had a habutai silk handkerchief panelled dress with sheer embroidered bodice compliments. Then we saw Marta silk jackets for men. Midnight blue crepe-de-chine saree, ruffled flare evening gown. So, we saw jackets, sarees, dresses, gowns, lehengas and so much. They got us glued to our seats and our eyes glued to their collection. Kangana Ranaut walked for Shyamal & Bhumika for the closing of their collection wearing, ivory gown with intricate embellishments and long veil to accompany the dress, making her look like a fairytale muse.
Anamika had the perfect end to the beautiful 5 day fashion festival. Her collection had so many Bollywood biggies to witness the culmination of the fashion week. Sridevi along with her daughter Janhvi Kapoor, Karishma Kapoor, Neha Dhupia, Isabelle Kaif ( Katrina Kaif’s sister) and most importantly she had Kareena Kapoor Khan walking for her this year as well. The collection was a notch ahead of all the designers that we saw. It was so regal so elegantly designed that no matter how hard you try you still wouldn’t find any faults in it. It was gorgeous end, almost like a fairytale written with magic. For the Grand Final of the Lakme Fashion Week, Kareena wore a lace saree with a racer back blouse along with a corset belt and fringe pants, also not to forget her statement earrings.
