The Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2017 unveiled an event that was bigger and better than the previous seasons! This was also one of the reasons to shift their venue from the usual to BKC Jio Gardens.
Boy ! aren’t we excited to give you all the updates about this amazing week that went by and has left us craving for more.
Here’s a glimpse of the events by the different designers. Some seasoned veterans while others carefully stepping onto this glamorous world of fashion. While the event kept up to its words of inclusivity, diversity, creativity and fresh energy, we also saw for the first time Anjali Lama, a Nepali transgender model who was amongst the 5 shortlisted fresh faces auditioned to walk the ramp.
With the setting sun over the Arabian Sea, Monisha Jaising showcased her collection on a cruise liner. Her theme revolved around ‘controlled bling’ on dresses, gowns and cocktail sarees. Sonakshi Sinha looked splendid in a burnt yellow cocktail gown with a long train.
Models strutted down the runway in summery jumpsuits, slit palazzos and denim battle jackets. Kiara Advani pulled a Priyanka Chopra at the Emmys and twirled her printed skirt and peplum choli for all its worth.
Tarun’s collection titled ‘Chashme Shahi’ has clothes that have an element of fantasy and romance.” Aptly inspired from the Mughal gardens that ooze freshness of the spring. Sheer light textures and lots of layering — a Tarun Tahiliani trademark embodies the feeling of a summer breeze.
Karishma Shahani Khan’s label is one to remember especially when you want to go traditional but at the same time not going overboard. Oversized silhouettes and anti-fit were prevalent throughout, with a preference for Khadi, Chanderi and Mul for fabrics. Sarees got a makeover with ruffled edges.
Anushree showcased her signature style of florals in pastel shades of pink and green.She included this season’s classics of offshoulder and shoulder show tunics and tops.
Gaurang Shah showcased a collection of white traditional wear in muslin interspersed with gold details. We loved how the dupattas were draped across the voluminous silhouettes lending a majestic air to the whole affair.
Anita Dongre’s surreal dream inspired from the golden sands of Rajasthan with all the flora and fauna that it encompasses was just the purrrfect ending to the Lakme Fashion Week. Ethereal gowns, pristine white midis and cream lehengas was set so well with the theme.
Let us know which of these designers took to your heart 🙂
