Mumbai's Lakme Fashion Week, organised by the FDCI (Fashion Design Council Of India), came to an end on sunday. At the fashion show, a number of designers displayed their most recent collections, and Bollywood stars walked the runway for them wearing lovely and unique attire. The runways were swamped with a plethora of luxurious hues, updated classics, and handcrafted workmanship methods. The theme of Lakm fashion show was accept your uniqueness and adorn beyond the lines. Some designers upped the gilded materials and embellishments that continue to entice the ready-to-wear market with their glitter and sparkle. In addition to prints, sustainability has drawn interest.
Here are some standout looks from the Lakme fashion show that grab the attention from the audience.
The monochrome look
From the first to the last day of Lakme india fashion week, the obsession with black and white peaked. Designers Shantanu and Nikhil Mehra substituted dresses, lehengas, and sherwanis in gunmetal, pewter, white, and black for jewel tones.
However, with Shahab Durazi's comeback, a monochromatic vibe took over the runway at Lakme Fashion Week, with a roster of designs that included everything from evening dresses to fitted pieces. Further, actress Mrunal Thakur donned a monochrome look and walked for Rajesh Pratap Singh’s design on the concluding day of show. She wore black leather belt to complete the look.
Shiny and glamorous
The most exciting styles of the season come from Geisha Designs by Paras & Shalini, Shahab Durazi, Not So Serious by Pallavi Mohan, and Shantnu & Nikhil. Shalini Jaikaria and Paras Bairoliya won our hearts during the debut of the occasion wear brand Luminescent with its sheen-heavy colour scheme and KiraKira-forward linear embellishments. Geisha Designs' sexy contoured-meets-fluid fits in Lakme fashion show, which came in jumpsuits and dresses, included fabric texturing that conjured images of a moonlit night and a starry sky. The 40s and 50s were brought back to life by Durazi's haute couture; the decorations were tasteful and limited to intricate floral craft or abstract textures. At Pallavi Mohan's Life is Beautiful runway show, models walked down in slinky, shimmering costumes that Cinderella would have envied.
AK-OK's layers and denim jackets, Geisha Designs by Paras & Shalini gilded blazers, Somya Goyal's relaxed, oversized cover-ups, and Aseem Kapoor and Pooja Haldar's artistic expression marked spiritual inspirations from Indian sadhus were just a few of the jackets that took over the runways.
Men’s edit and theme of war
However, the men's edit collection provided by three companies stole the show during the jacket display. Countrymade, created by fashion designer Sushant Abrol, debuted a collection of retro, military, cropped jackets along with more understated choices. The bottom clothing was the ideal combination, and the working shirts looked casual and comfortable. For this linen, many types of hemp, cotton, twill, handloom, denim, and silk are blended in.
The second label was Son of a Noble Snob by Mani Shankar Singh. These designs were set on the theme of the war within. Pure linen was the only fabric that engaged in trendy ensembles for attention. A strong earthy palette was required for the colour narrative, with black playing a crucial role. Collection showed the war theme through prints, geometric designs and asymmetric designs.
Third label was Khanijo by Gaurav Khanijo. This collection was inspired by Greek mythical. It illustrates the sustainable fashion and role of fabrics. These outfits were prepared by dead stock that piled up in the studio during production. Loose, comfy silhouettes, inventive touches for trousers, sharply cut jackets and easy-on-the-eye shirts and tunics brought unconventional looks for the fusion menswear story.
Sustainable fashion is not merely a technical goal; it is also a need. Using Tencel Lyocell and Modal fibre in conjunction with the vintage appeal of draperies, embroideries, and storytelling, Anju Modi's thoughtfully created eco-friendly line dubbed Damayanti celebrates the finest of technology and sustainability. It's Only a Dream, a collection by Eka by Rina Singh, was the ideal fusion of hand-woven textiles and hand-painted crafts.
