Best of best from Lakme Fashion Week-Winter Festive’15

It’s fashion week time again and we’re thrilled that the world is a couple of exquisite outfits richer already! I am sure fashion lovers have had all their 6 senses alert for Lakme Fashion Week pictures, updates, articles in the last fortnight. I have been sooo excited to blog about this; but picking out the best outfits from collections of close to 100 designers took a wee bit longer than I expected (and it did not help that the collections were so, so varied and awesome.) ! I have put the collections under the themes- ‘A princess story’, ‘The It Girl’s street style’, ‘Feeling festive’ , ‘He’s the charmer’  and ……-wait-for-it-……. ‘the showstoppers!’.

 

Has anyone else noticed how Asian fashion has made a leap to post-modernism? I mean gone are the days when you couldn’t do flared pants when skinny pants were in, or when the low-waist trend made high waisted trousers seem granny-like. We have moved into a fashionably comfortable space of acceptance- If you can carry it off, pick just whatever you think makes you look stunning! No common rules for all- personal style wins!

 

And the talented ones at Lakme Fashion Week this season showed us just that. From androgyny, dazzling sequins, elegant drapes, bold color blocks, dramatic cuts, ethnic handloom, subtle fusion – we saw so much this time! Even amid the diversity though, some of the trends spotted were  maroon, olive green, capes, stripes and zig-zags, crop-tops, sheer, layering…you would have seen some patterns if you had gone through the hundreds of designs like i did (but now you can just check out the best ones! phew.)

Random fun fact: Vir Das debuted his collection at LFW. I quite like his sense of humour. No really, i’m referring to the quirky prints on the clothes.

 

So finally… here are my picks ! Take a breath ladies and gentlemen, this is going to take a while and you will not want to stop! (Don’t forget to check out what I wore at the end of the post)

So which designer do you think totally nailed it this season? i think it would be a tie between Manish Malhotra, Abu-Sandeep and Monisha Jaising.

 

Anyone feel like dressing up already?
