A majority of the first three days at Lakmé Fashion Week was all about simple, easy-to-wear silhouettes in light fabrics – all perfect for your summer wardrobe. But the last two days took a 180 degree turn. Yes the clothes were still summer-appropriate, but the embroidery got heavier and suddenly you were left craving a new festive wardrobe for the summer too.
Scroll through your snapchat or Instagram and about 80% of your contacts are dancing away at a wedding. We’re smack in the middle of shaadi season and even our office feels kinda empty because people are attending different functions all over the world. Getting married, especially as per Indian customs doesn’t end with just one event.
If you’ve been following Lakmé Fashion Week this season, you’d notice that the last two days were bridal central! Sure there were a few designers (Antar Agni, Divyam Mehta, Wendell Rodricks) who put forward ready to wear separates like blazers, dresses and trousers. But sparkling lehengas, alternate saris and bejewelled cocktail gowns and dresses took centre stage.
