Different shades of Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012

8th August: Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012 started from 3rd of August, with the overflowing colours, shimmering styles and a wide array of beautiful designs.


The week started with the feel of Mexico brought into the show by the Pia Pauro, the beautiful dresses with fresh look, made her win the hearts of everyone. The collection was named as the ‘Espiritu de Mexico’ and Monica Dogra walked the ramp wearing one of beautiful attires from her collection. This international style is then followed by Payal Singhal’s traditional ‘India in colour’ collection. Her work mostly included the sarees, tunics, kurtas, dresses, jumpers decorated with the mirror work. Shibani Dandekar was the star attraction for the Payal Singhal’s collection.

It was followed by the glamorously gothic designs from Jatin Varma’s ‘Dark Angels’ collection and Shradha Murarka’s ‘Enlightened Shadows’ collection. While as a part of Talent Box forum to promote the young talent at LFW, designer Anushka Khanna presented her designs full of Victorian romanticism with her collection named ‘Floral Fragments’. Besides, on this first day of LFW full of tribal to tradition to modern designs, Kareena Kapoor and director Karan Johar too were two of the highlights. And as the designers sparkled with their innovative and unconventional collection, the veteran stars became the highlight of the runway.

The second and third day of LFW was full of highs and lows, while the comical mood was set up by the supposed presence of Govinda being replaced by the Tusshar Kapoor. Wendell Rodricks again shone with his unique take on nouveau hippie’s style, which made this otherwise average style worth all the attention. Moreover, the coloured stripes on the bottom made it a talking point of the day as it eliminates all the possibilities of thunder thighs plus it also brought back the point shoulder looks from the 80s. Together, Wendell Rodricks, Aarti Vijay Gupta and Jatin Varma revived a style that died a natural death few years ago.

Amongst the designers whose work disappointed was Roma Narsinghani, as her dresses created confusion in the minds of others, and they looked like some origami models from primary classes.

There were the mullet designs, which allow the concept of party in the front and business at the back look. The skirt suits from designers Drashta and Yogesh Chaudhary impressed amongst all the designer collections in LFW until now.

The Lakme Fashion Week looks way too promising this time, and we are heading towards some amazing designs in the coming days.
