I might be an odd duck in the fashion fraternity for saying this but every season I find that Textile Day, to me, is the most enjoyable. Maybe it’s because it’s the most unassuming of days or maybe it’s because it has less to do with the designer and most to do about the material and craft. Day 2 of Lakme Fashion Week saw a mix of traditional handloom, handwoven saris and contemporary #ReadyToWear, and we had a blast watching the day unfold. From monochrome to a neutral palette and print to bright colours, today saw the length and breadth of the scene, in terms of inspiration. Even the silhouettes featured both flowy layering and structured fit, depending on the aesthetic of the designers in question. Here’s a round up!
Kicking off, Aagor showcased some interesting silhouettes, and we loved the blue hues!
Pella’s whimsical quality shone through this collection very obviously with her beautifully draped outfits.
Padmaja’s collection was super wearable and showcased layering very nicely.
Anavila Misra‘s installation celebrated the sari and handloom perfectly.
From the very desi sari to more contemporary creations, the Weavers Studio collection was quite varied in it’s collection.
Kaleekal played with fabrics and feel while sticking firmly to the muted tones we’re accustomed to seeing in Fall wear.
Pariah by Pranami showcased wearable Indian wear that was suitably ethnic and festive while still being light.
Three’s loose fit style was basically the kind of clothing we’d like to live in.
From the soundtrack to the lighting, everything about this show was designed to make an impact. Although Kallol’s collection had some black and grey, its the blues that caught our attention.
Some fantastic woven masterpieces were paraded down the runway in an array of colours at the Naturally Anuradha show.
This collection transported us to the English countryside. Could farm girl chic be a thing?
Drama, texture and tonnes of colour- this collection had it all!
The prints in Bina’s collection were simply astounding. And the earthy colour palette was basically right what we love.
Metallics clearly got a thumbs up this season from designer Hemang Aggarwal. Those metallic bow-ties might be our favourite thing!
The words fashion frenzy never rang truer than they did when we watched Sanjay
Standouts for us today were definitely Kallol Datta and Sanjay Garg, who ended Day 2 of LFW with a closing show in The Palladium Mall Parking Lot – P6! After a look at all the galleries, let us know which one’s your favourite too by commenting below!
