It’s that time of the year where we mentally prepare ourselves for the fashion frenzy that awaits us both on and off the ramp. Yes! I’m talking about Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort ’16! As we entered the first show of the first day our excitement just went a notch higher, especially because the show introduced fresh, talented designers like Gen Next, who are always a treasure to watch. Day 1 also saw designers like Sahil Kochhar, Anand Kabra and Sneha Arora amongst the many.  Here’s a sneak peek to all the shows that cooked up a storm on the runway!

Gen Next

This year’s talented bunch of designers are sure to make waves in no time! While Aaylixir by Naveem Naaz Shaikh presented a playful collection of denims, Aqdus Saleem showcased some middle eastern glamour with turbaned models. Agrima Batra‘s collection was contemporary and chic with origami appliqués. Indigenous fashion with all indigo and white palette was brought by Chirag Chainani. And with giant collars and asymmetrical silhouettes Chola by Sohaya Misra was among the worthy Gen Next designers. To know and see more, click here.
