As we go deeper into Lakme Fashion Week, day 3 and day 4 seem to pass us by, like a breath taking wave of fashion. And while we are able to absorb all the art and talent it beholds, we wouldn’t want you to miss out on the action. Here’s bringing you the best of day 3 and day 4.
N & S Gaia
Siddharth Sinha explored Meghalaya’s textiles in the best possible way under his label N & S Gaia. The show began with a white draped gown and slowly the color story progressed to indigo, red, grey, beige, maroon and green. Knee length capris and miniskirts rocked the runway and so did deconstructed asymmetric hems. Pretty floral print on white enhanced the look further. So much beauty lies in Meghalaya, and how often do we get to witness?
With a surreal collection, Armaan Aiman’s Buddalicious’ created a serene, peaceful effect which was hard to come out to from Buddha printed ensembles as well as lotus motifs sizzled on the ramp and created a trance like ambience on stage. Shorts, floor length maxis, boxy layering with bamboo like headgear- truly a visual treat!
Shantanu n Nikhil
Shantanu & Nikhil’s collection exuded class and sophistication like none other. Gowns, peplum tops, skirts in pastels and nudes rocked the runway. Titled as “The Shadows Within” the collection is about the journey of a fictitious character from pre-independence to post-independence era. Boxy jackets, Victorian collars- it went from colonial to contemporary, taking us in roller coaster ride of style.
Anju Modi’s collection “Seeking Paradise” showcased a range of Indian silhouettes which looked ideal for summer wear. We especially loved the cuts and construction of the outfits as well as the beautiful colors mixed together. However, we must admit the make up and white dust on the hair was way too distracting.
Komal Sood is known for crafting elegant silhouettes in simple cuts. In shades of champagne, the show displayed an array of evening gowns and dresses. Perfect for evening wear, this collection will definitely not burst your bubble!
