It’s the end of an era. For the last five years, Lakmé and IMG Reliance have held fashion week at the Grand Hyatt in Santacruz. This year, they’re shaking up a few things – number one being the location. Lakmé Fashion Week will now be held on two floors at the Palladium Hotel in Lower Parel.

Over five days from the 20th – 24th of August, Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 will be held on the 9th floor while the stalls that make up The Source will occupy the 8th floor. The glitzy setting of the premise, robust administrative and hospitality assets make the Palladium Hotel the perfect new host.

I think this will be great! The Palladium Hotel is centrally located, plus it connects to Phoenix Mills, which means more restaurant options for when you’re famished from watching the shows and you don’t have to step outside at all – considering it will be raining in August.

We hear they have a few more tricks up their sleeves this year, guess we’ll just have to wait and see. What do you think? Are you excited about Fashion Weeks’s new home? Tell us in the comments below.
