As the sun set over Lakmé Fashion Week, editors, stylists and everyone else in attendance headed down to Mehboob Studios where the five-day fashion affair was going to come to a suitable close. Set on a pedestal, yep, there’s no other word to describe it, in one of the larger studios was a sculpture of a woman’s face, her hair flying in the wind. Gaurav Gupta’s models were to walk around this face with the pedestal as their runway and as the lights dimmed, we were witness to one of the most spectacular finales Lakmé Fashion Week has seen so far.
In shades of taupe, ivory, black and red, Gaurav’s signature silhouettes, he took it up a notch with the sculpted textures on his garments. Avant-garde doesn’t adequately describe what we saw, so you’d better take a look for yourself.
As per the usual Lakmé Fashion Week finale, Kareena Kapoor Khan played showstopper for the night but unlike every other time, as soon as she walked onto the runway, chills would be the right word to describe what everyone felt. The perfect pout, updo and a gorgeous outfit, the five-day fashion week couldn’t have ended on a better note.
Until next season, Lakmé Fashion Week!
