5 Days Of Fashion Kicks Off On A Fabulous Note

5 Days Of Fashion Kicks Off On A Fabulous Note

Rashmi Bhosale

When we say we experienced a paradigm shift in fashion at Day 1 of Lakme Fashion Week, we’re not kidding! Gear up for abstract prints, boxy silhouettes and beautiful juxtaposition of old and new. It seems the designers have a new voice and a new rhythm they are tuning us into. Bold, artistic and comfy chic, they might have held back on the colour palette, but not on the intricate details. The inspirations were unique and each collection had a story to tell. Here’s the round up of the fabulous start to 5 days of fashion!

Gen Next Designers

The new fashion generation has art up their sleeves and are not shy to showcase it! We loved the undertones of the dark hues combined with the easy breezy silhouettes.

Rara Avis By Sonal Verma

The new collection of Rara Avis by Sonal Verma aimed to reinvent the classics. The intricate details were quite exquisite and the outfits were styled with some fierce accessories. Sonal Chauhan looked badass walking down the runway in a kimono-inspired silhouette.

431:88 By Shweta Kapur

The artistic approach was quite evident in the outfits of 431:88 by Shweta Kapur. The shiny fabrics and frill details definitely got our attention. Sayani Gupta stole the show as she walked the ramp in a shimmery mini number.

The Meraki Project

Taking us back to our childhood, The Meraki Project by Sonali Pamnani was a master stroke when it came to motifs. All the drawings with crooked lines from our early days were brought to life on the ramp through embroidery. Sanya Malhotra looked fabulous as she shimmied down the runway in a flirty skirt.

The textile maestro gave a twist to the classic weaves and had us on cloud nine. The theatrics of the collection ‘Cloud People’ was enchanting and enthralling, to say the least.
