Lakme Fashion Week Kicks off
The girls have slipped into their heels, make-up is patted on and the favourite dresses are laid out. Its that time of the year again. Endless days (and nights) of fashion frenzy, all to find out what designers have in store for us for the new season.
The Lakme Fashion Week kicked off yesterday for its second edition in 2014. The 6-day long event began with Amit Agarwal and Masaba Gupta; it’ll conclude on 24th August with the Lakme Absolute Grand Finale by Manish Malhotra. The lineup includes prominent names from the fashion industry like Varun Bahl, Anju Modi, Little Shilpa and Shantanu & Nikhil.
On the first day, models cheered in floral and circular prints on the runway that featured Masaba Gupta’s excellent collection. Perfectly cut and not-so-shabby tailored silhouettes were an intelligent choice this time around. The cut-out sari with a sharp drape on Shilpa Shetty raised eyebrows and got as many nods of approval.
Meanwhile, as always, divine sophistication is what Amit Agarwal brought to the table. Body shaping power, metals ablaze and critical texturing worked well. Space age mixed with nude details created quite a stir.
The two mavericks were absolutely apt to open the power packed week dedicated to style. We bring you our top five favourites from the Lakme opening shows:
