A platform where more than 80 top designers unveil their collection, each giving a new face to the trend and season; with diversified and avant-garde silhouettes and highlighting details, we bring LAKME FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2015.
However, LFW’15 was all about energetic tones, buoyant impressions of art and heavy luxury all together giving birth to new fashion statements yet again. The week has ended, but these remarkable collections have made their mark right from the fashion extremists on the front row to the fashion followers sitting before their gadgets swooned by the runway.
Here are my favorite jaw-dropping collections from LFW’15.
Manish Malhotra, a respected asset to the fashion and Bollywood industry commences the season with a grand opening, celebrating 25 years of success and glory on the dais.
The Blue Runway by Manish featured flourishing threadwork and parsi-gara embroidery. The soft and flowy fabrics were rendered in the hues of blue with bold motifs of GOLD. Whereas, the mens’ collection showcased affluent and contented attire ruling the runway with self-embroidered jackets and long shirts.
The high-end designer set apart his collection by welcoming a new dimension to it with a social media message of gender equality. Always doing the right thing Manish!
PAPA DON’T PREACH.
Shubhika’s collection for Papa Don’t Preach was titled as Twitterpated, inspired by the idea of love with romantic pop of pastels stitched with lively embellished heart motifs. The collection redefined sexy and chic showcasing straightforward silhouettes with rich crepe, silk tissue, mesh and satin. Am I the only one going cray-cray over those quirky props and accessories? I guess not. That frolic umbrella and those pom-pom earrings ruled the ramp.
Fashion designer Dhruv successfully blurs the gender lines with modified formals, eccentric designs and with hot little off-the-shoulder number on LFW ramp. Though Androgyny is one of the running trends this year, DRVV debuts the trend on Indian Platform successfully with his edgy monochrome creation.
THE QUIRK BOX.
Jayesh Sachdev and Rixi Bhatia are turning everyones quirk on; cajoling the crowd with their signature sparkling prints to go wanderlust this summer. The collection dominates this season with airplane printed on the jacket, domes from Moscow on the back and postcards on pants completing the look with travel friendly accessories. This summer, quirk away.
ANAMIKA KHANNA – THE GRAND FINALE.
Anamika Khanna, who rules the Indian couture world closed the Lakme Fashion Week 2015 with beyond-graceful silhouettes portraying a mélange of designs with richly embroidered capes, soft sultry fabrics and gorgeous headgears, which redefines a modern bride.
Lakme ambassador Kareena Kapoor Khan masterfully rendered in Anamika Khanna couture closes the season with a majestic bang!
Well, these are my favorites from the LFW’15. But there’s more! These designers may have imprinted us with their lush and gorgeous apparel but there were designers who took the historic way and made us all re-live the art of the different eras. Stay tuned. x
Blogger Note- Hi all. I’m sorry for disappearing from this sphere, but I’m actually not sorry?! I’ve been facing a writers-block lately because I’m working on my CV, as summer is here and I am looking for a job. Priority shifts you see. I seriously don’t want to lose focus on both- here and in my life. Sometimes it gets really hard, but I’m sure it’ll be okay in the end.
Hope you have a great day.
