From gorgeous bridal pieces to stunning gowns with madhubani accents, here’s a quick update on the three most notable trends that we saw at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017.
At India’s biggest fashion show which concluded at Mumbai’s St Regis Hotel, we saw the best of fashion designers and models grace the runway. And we also got to witness some of the biggest stars from tinsel town strutting the ramp as showstoppers for their respective designers.
This year also stood out for Johnnie Walker – The Journey show which saw the likes of Ali Fazal and Vidyut Jammwal walk the ramp for designers Abhishek Paatni, Ajay Kumar, and Asa Kazingmei, who created a special capsule collection inspired by Johnnie Walker’s iconic striding man.
And so, like every season, we find ourselves breaking down new styles and trends created by some of the best designers in the industry. If you couldn’t witness the beauty and magic of LFW, here’s a quick round-up of some of the hottest trends you need to know about. Take a look.
Always a favourite colour among designers for the bridal season, almost all collections at this year’s LFW had one piece that was in this palette. From Nachiket Barve’s debut lehengas to Manoj Agarrwal’s regal showstopper features on Eli Evram, this trend is definitely the flavour of the season.
While designer duo Sonam and Paras Modi from Sva put Vani Kapoor in a gorgeous bridal piece, Rahul Mishra offset the choli with a white lehenga on Shraddha Kapoor.
Designer A Kazingmei’s striking collection at Johnnie Walker – The Journey show which was inspired by the Johnnie Walker's iconic striding man had hues of red (flavour of the season), alongside black, gold and blue. The intrinsic detailing on leather and denim in the colour palette of red among others, was a huge hit on the ramp.
We think red remains an eternal favourite trend this season.
The great Indian wedding goes hand in hand with traditional textiles and art forms. Mixing tradition with a hint of funk was what designer Neha Agarwal’s designs were about, this season. Showstopper Chitrangada graced the runway donning a stunning gown with madhubani accents while Gaurang sent all-traditional kalamkari garments in various silhouettes across the runway.
It would take a well-trained eye to identity the Benares broacades that Amit Agarwal playfully transformed into a gown, while anavilla jazzed the silk sari with a trench coat. One way or the other, the great Indian textile and arts are here to reign.
The Easy Breezy
Fashion can sometimes also be kind. If these designers had it their way, dressing down with no rules would be the order of the day. While label Jodi sent out a fun line of dresses perfect for a Sunday brunch or a picnic, Eka’s line was all about subtle layering. Wendell proved that fashion is comfortable and fun no matter what with his special collection featuring plus-sized models in easy, bright and relaxed silhouettes.
Last but not the least, Hetal Shrivastav along with Craftmark, mixed the traditional with funky, serving you responsible, yet fun fashion. This trend is surely going to keep the comfort quotient really high.
