Lakme Fashion Week Finale by Rohit Bal

We witnessed a majestic setting with 90 models strutting down the runway for the high priest of fashion. Rohit Bal’s quintessential creativity and ingenuity caught our attention by the way he presented his show. Each sequence began with a 3D mapping effect projected on the beautiful heritage structure of St. Xavier’s College that seemed as the ideal venue for this extravagent affair.

The spellbinding show couldn’t get better with bollywood diva Kareena Kapoor Khan struting the ramp as showstopper bringing to life the Illuminate look.

The collection was a presentation of his fabulous craftsmanship, eye for detail and par excellence design aesthetics. The sartorial masterpieces made with meticulous detailing and attention reflected his love for the colours – ivory and subtle gold. The finale saw a grand showcase of haute couture designs that were contemporary yet rooted in Indian heritage and aspired to accentuate every Indian woman’s radiance. Infused with floral motifs, the collection was high on glamour and ideal for the Indian red carpet. Rohit’s understated collection provided the perfect balance to the illuminated setting and left the viewers dazzled and mesmerized.

The collection was high on allure, incorporating floral patterns and bright colours, apart from my eternal favorite – ivory and muted gold. Literally a celebration, the entire show was conceptualised to reflect the sparkle of a crystal and bring alive the “illuminate” theme”. 

Talking about his finale collection, Rohit said, “As always, working with Lakmé proved to be action packed affair. Thrilled to be back as the Grand Finale designer after four years.
