Each year Lakme Fashion Week pays tribute to the Indian Textiles – with an entire day of designers showcasing some of the most celebrated fabrics and the rarest. Here’s our roundup from day two.
Linen lineage: Anavila’s ode to linen saree’s was an ethereal sight to see – the models looked divine in the soft earthy tones and unconventional drapes. We love the sheer simplicity of the long saree blouses and shorter pallus. The chequered saree has our hearts set on it.
Chauraha: Mayank and Shraddha Nigam presented their collection with an interesting choice of fabrics, dhonekali and gamcha – the looks spoke of a rustic yet modern feel. Don’t you just love a modern villager?!
A colourful delight: ‘Samarkand’, the cross road of culture, a city in Uzbekistan, served as the inspiration for Rahul and Shikha’s collection for Vrisa. Silks celebrated in colourful hues teamed with rustic silver jewellery and mojris – we loved the playful spirit of these looks.
Mesmerised by Mul-magic: Harper’s Bazaar curated a feast for our eyes with eight designers and their spin on the forgotten fabric, mulmul! We loved Anand Bhushan’s houndstooth detail, Hemant and Nandita’s colourful twin set and Anupamaa Dayal’s fresh summery print. Who knew mulmul could be so versatile?
Celebrating Menswear: Team Stylecracker was proud to be a associated with Lakme Fashion Week as our stylists took to the Jabond Stage by styling the looks for the Easies and Killer show – a gang of dapper dudes strutting their stuff with Sarah Jane Dias singing Beyoncé tunes for the Killer show, we couldn’t be more proud!
The fabulous day came to a close with Raghavendra Rathore showcasing his prêt line for Men and Riteish Deshmukh closing the show for him, it was a classy affair full of bandhgalas and breeches!
Stay tuned for more runway highlights from day three!
