Where in the world can you arrive at a place that has an energy and a vibe that plays with your soul, and with the beat of the music your in a word of your own? Well, I can tell you one thing; It’s definitely not Disneyland! Day 1 at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016 started off by giving us those exact feelings. From the models walking down the runway to the music selection and energy of the people from the front row to the last, Gen Next’s started the day on a fun and peppy note!
While in the elevator after the Gen Next show, Vogue’s Bandana Tewri started a conversation on how there should be a Gen Next album – We completely agree. From Agrima Batra‘s show to Chirag Nainani and the others in between, the line-up, the designs and the music were completely in sync! Scroll down to see all the designers and their creations on the runway…
Agrima’s show started with a playlist that hit all of our hearts. Playing 2003’s Superstar by Jamelia the crowd was already loving what they were hearing, and seeing of course! The innovative wrap dresses, short sleeved jackets, pencil pants (that were to die for) and other stunning additions, were a perfect fusion of chic day to evening wear.
From ombre to laser-cuts, to childish motifs and stripes, this collection had a striking appeal. The kurtas, unstructured coats with muted colours, colour blocked jeans with alphabet printed shirts caught everyones attention!
‘The Pyjama Tribe’ for her label Chola saw a lot of embellishments, layered separates and a neutral colour palette which then moved towards deep blue makes for a perfect bold fashion statement.
Tye-dye, textures, prints and easy silhouettes is how one would describe Chirag Nainani’s collection. The all white and indigo collection included peplum blouses, tuxedo jackets, asymmetrical wrap tops and so much more that appealed to our eyes, mostly because of its wearability. We especially loved the one earring touch!
With a collection titled ‘The Modest Chapter’, Aqdus recreated modest-wear by designing unique and creative patterns that included excessive layering but gave off a mod and high-fashion feel to it. It was a mix of Islamic ethnic wear and contemporary fashion trends.
