India is a country of beautiful fabrics, and Lakme Fashion Week believes in respecting the textiles of its homeland. Day 3 was all about that and more.
With all due respect, here’s our verdict of Day 3 at Lakme fashion week
Collection Of The Day: Armaan Aiman
The stage suddenly seemed less than real as an array of ethereal looking ensembles were seen at Armaan Aiman’s show. Titled as “Buddalicious”, the collection was predominated by the Buddha print as well as lotus and chakra motifs. Embellishments and embroidery on skirts, trousers, jackets, shorts and dresses enhanced the look further. The color palette remained non-fussy in black and white.
Prints Of The Day: Sayantan Sarkar
Sayantan Sarkar’s collection depicted prints in the most beautiful color palette including neon kissed pink, grey streaked purple, seductive black, popsicle orange and fading aqua. Kurti dresses, tunics, jackets and pants were major silhouettes in the collection. The vibrant prints lit up the entire ramp with their energy.
Most Beautiful Indian Textile Collection: N & S Gaia
Designer Sidharth Sinha revealed his beautiful collection under his label N & S Gaia featuring the amazing textiles of Meghalaya and crafts of Northeast India. In shades of ecru, beige, green, brown, grey, indigo, red, maroon and yellow, the ensembles looked time transported from the vintage colonial era.
Pastels Of The Day: Anita Dongre
Anita Dongre’s collection “Varanasi Weaves” sizzled on the ramp in beautiful pastels. The color story comprised of old rose, powder blue, buttercup yellow were teamed with nude, dull gold and of course pure white. Pencil skirts, stately column gowns, floor skimming skirts and cropped tops, worn with flared pants along with tonal embroidery and subtle shine predominated the runway.
Most Powerful Statement of the Day: Koecsh by Kresha bajaj
Kresha Bajaj’s punk rock inspired collection consisted of dark ensembles. Bustiers, pencil skirts, power shoulders, chains, metal fringes- elements designed especially to make women feel powerful and preferred. Just the right kind of feeling you need as you step out to paint the town red!
