With all the big name designers at Lakme Fashion Week, these five new designers may not have grabbed front page headlines, but their collections definitely impressed us. From quirky prints, to unisex accessories, to fusion wear, you absolutely have to know about these designers!

At the LFW Talent Box,  Daniel Syiem showcased his collection entitled Ka Tlang, which translates to Winter in Shillong. He stayed true to his roots by using fabrics from his native Meghalaya, such as tapmohkhlieh and ThohRew Stem. We hope to see Daniel graduate to a bigger platform next season.

Fusion wear has been under some criticism lately, but Karishma Shahani‘s collection beautifully married Eastern & Western silhouettes. Layered separates, inspired by Bollywood and Art Deco, really made her collection stand out, and we love that she expanded into quirky footwear this season. Can’t wait to snag a pair!

Tired of all those Birkins, Lady Diors and Micheal Kors? Well, here’s a new accessory label to covet. Square Loop by Kanika Sachdeva presented a unisex line of bags, satchels, totes, and portfolios, all with interesting proportions. Kanika definitely has an amazing design sense in her blood… did you know her sister Ruchika Sachdeva helms the Bodice label?

In only her second season, Sneha Arora has already proved her design chops. She showcased a military-inspired collection, with a strong androgynous appeal. Can’t wait to see what comes next from her!

Ilk by Shikha and Vinita

Prints where everywhere at LFW, and we loved Ilk’s snazzy mushroom prints. Their collection was flirty yet sophisticated, with edgy cropped tops, tunics and jackets.
