Day 5 was definitely a finale kinda day. With all kinds of fashion… Rina Dhaka‘s show in association with ALL, Esha Doel walking the ramp with her daughter for Hamleys and the OG queen Kareena Kapoor Khan killing it for the closing show. Would you believe me if I told you that a worn down, old factory made the most perfect setting for this season’s grand finale? The lights, music, smoke machines et all at a run-down setting created the ideal backdrop for Gauri & Nainika to showcase their fun, flirty winter festive collection on the final day of Lakmé Fashion Week.
Songs from the ’80s and early ’90s set the tone for the ensembles Gauri & Nainika X Lakmé Absolute were about to put onto the runway—What a feeling by Irene Cara, Show Me Heaven by Maria Mckee, Like A Prayer by Madonna, Freedom by George Michael, Billie Jean by Michael Jackson played as the models strutted down the runway in garments that were all kinds of glamorous.
To top this off, Kareena Kapoor closed the show in a dress that was classy, chic and glamorous all rolled into one. Gauri & Nainika‘s showstopping outfit was no average evening gown—this piece looked like it was crafted to embody grace and style with it’s mesh detailing and modern silhouette. Check it out here below:
But before Kareena stepped on to the runway, the designer duo showcased a collection that was vibrant, fun, free-flowing and one that you’d want to bookmark ASAP. Here are a few of our faves!
The collection began with a line of flowy, vibrant dresses accessorized with big buckled belts, larger-than-life flowers and bows.
Vibrant colours with Gauri & Nainika‘s signature frills were showcased in printed dresses perfect for a winter-festive runway. Also, we totally love how these garments were styled with gumboots!
From jumpsuits to dresses, evening gowns and more—Gauri & Nainika proved that a dazzling outfit is perfect no matter where you want to wear it.
While the silhouettes had us swooning, these sketches on the dresses caught my attention immediately. They add an unconventional touch to a simple look and truly make it look luxurious.
From seeing Kareena Kapoor Khan take the runway by storm, to the juxtapositioning of the venue and G&N‘s collection, this Lakmé Fashion Week Grand Finale was one I’ll never forget!
