The final day of LFW saw the population double, and fantastic shows. Our SC Blogger was almost trampled in the stampede that was the entry to each show! The shows were way behind schedule and ended late, but we were having too much fun to complain. Here are the highlights from Day 05 of LFW Winter Festive ’14.
Megha Garg showed a collection of body fitting dresses with long flowing cape-like trails. The color palette was a balanced mix of dark and light tones, with black, red and pastels being key.
VERB by Pallavi Singhee was an eclectic mix of sporty bombers, sheer fabrics, lace trims, tie and dye and traditional embroidery. Needless to say, we LOVED it! The colors were black, nude and pastel blue, in sync with the sporty-girly vibe of the collection.
Vikram Phadnis presented a collection of elegant contemporary Indian-wear in shades of nudes, black and gold, with splashes of blue tie and dye. Zardozi and Gota Patti were featured as forms of surface embellishment. Bipasha Basu and Dia Mirza looked extremely graceful as they walked the ramp for him.
Priyadarshani Rao‘s Ode to Indigo collection was just that – a wonderful ode to the many shades of indigo. The silhouette was kept simple and straight falling, with sheer on sheer layering and long kurtis paired with palazzos. The print clash was classy and much appreciated.
Armaan & Aiman‘s leather collection with studs and spikes had structured, contemporary chic silhouettes. The dhoti-style skirt in fluid fabric had us sit up and take notice.
Farah Sanjana‘s collection featured pretty chandelier prints and sheer, fluid fabrics stitched into modern, ultra chic silhouettes. Body-hugging crop tops and flowing skirts in monochrome made for a charming collection.
Varun Bahl‘s collection consisted of luxe pants, pretty skirts, sheer shirts and sequined jackets. We especially loved the nude on nude layering and the red embroidery done tastefully on some pieces. The nude and grey color palette made a really pretty picture.
Ditsy florals and sheer panels were key features of the Neha Agarwal collection at LFW. Form fitting crop tops, bustiers and full skirts in ombre are what made this collection impactful. Peplums and fish cuts put in an appearance too.
Arpita Mehta‘s bright pink lehengas were very conventionally feminine and sensual. The color palette started off with black and metallic grey and moved on to nudes and finally a very hot pink. The brides and their friends might want to have a look.
Manish Malhotra‘s finale for the LFW WInter Festive ’14 was a grand and star studded affair. Bollywood divas like Kajol, Sridevi, Priyanka Chopra and Karishma Kapoor turned up in dazzling attires, while Kareena and Varun Dhawan walked the ramp for the ace designer. The show itself was a dramatic event, with full skirted lehengas in dark metallic tones, tie and dye and sequin embroidered being key features of the collection.
The finale went on late and the crowd was frenzied, but we’re just glad our Blogger made it out alive! Up next, our street style coverage from LFW.
