It’s finally here. The fashionable chaos that is Lakmé Fashion Week hit yesterday and it already feels like our heads are exploding with all the outfits we saw, just on day 1. As always, the week started with team GenNext bringing some fresh ideas to the table. While the palette was dark and dangerous at Rara Avis and 431_88, Label by Ritu Kumar took us back to those tropical summer prints we all love.
Speaking of going back, it felt like being at school again as Nakita Singh and The Meraki Project’s shows started. Doodles on clothing by Nakita Singh and childlike hearts and prints at The Meraki Project hopscotched down the runway as school bells rang in the background.
Bright, playful colours took over the runway at Masaba Gupta, but the end of day 1 was what everyone waited for with bated breath. Raw Mango by Sanjay Garg took over the Royal Opera House with his celestial ‘Cloud People’ collection leaving everyone wide-eyed – you’ll need to see it to believe it!
So without teasing you any longer, here are all the outfits we’d love to wear from day 1 at Lakmé Fashion Week:
