Lakme India Fashion Week - Day 6

Show 1: Sabyascahi and Swapan and Seema

Sabyascahi: Day 6 of Lakme Fashion Week started off with an intellectually whimsical collection of Sabyascahi that created the fun idiom for Indian fashion. Stunning in its use of exquisite colour mixes, extraordinary fabric ornamentation and unusual silhouettes. Bohemian chic was reinterpreted for Indian silhouettes with patch skirts, churidars, tunics, blouses, jackets and sarees. The colours were rich, contrasting yet completely harmonious in their appeal- a range of fuchsias, oranges, peacock greens, reds, henna, and turquoise. Brocades, duppioni, tanchois, antique saree-borders, and bandhanis were creatively assembled.

Swapan and Seema: Followed by was the very simple and extraordinary traditional collection of Swapan and Seema. The usual but graceful blend of Indian shapes worked upon with embroideries, the use of flamboyant colours like warm tones of fuchsia, orange, rust and the ever present black, created garments for formal occasions. Crepes, georgettes and jacquards were dip dyed, and ombre dyed to craft a mature yet elegant line.

Show 2: Lalit and Sunita Jalan and Neeta Bhargava

Lalit and Sunita Jalan: The next show was presented by Lalit and Sunita Jalan which basically focused on a collection for men and women for evening wear, casual lounge wear and comfy casual shirts. Sherwanis, cool long kurtas, short shirts and comfortable pants, put together in fabrics like fresh cream cottons, woven, textured checks and delicate silks formed the fabric story with women clad in saris, salwar- kameezes and skirts to complement the men.

Neeta Bhargava: Followed by was designer Neeta Bhargava who delighted the audience with an eclectic mix of thread embroideries, expressive colours like turquoise and white, the colours for this season, embellished with delicate flower trellises were very eye-catching. Bold flame colours of orange, mango, ochre and red were beautifully enhanced with floral hand painted motifs. Fabrics such as crepes, organzas and georgettes were molded into wrap skirts, sarongs, short dresses, kurtas and the essential saris.

Show 3: Meera and Muzzafar Ali

Next was the creation of Meera and Muzzafar Ali. Silhouettes meant for a woman with taste, were delicately put together in soft ecrus, candy peach, rose pink, mystical lilac, moss greens and lissome lemons. Every detail of embroidery and clothing had a reflection of the Kotwara essence…..purity, perfection and simplicity. Graceful embellishments in thread and silver and gold were meticulously used in chevrons, soft block prints and floral motifs. Sherwanis worn with kurtas, khulla pajamas and churidars created a delectable collection for men. The women adorned lehengas, short kurtas, diaphanous dupattas in soft maheshwaris and chanderis.

Show 4: Vallaya Studio
