Lakme Fashion Week 2019: On a fashion high

Recently concluded, the coveted Lakme Fashion Show held in Mumbai gathered a coterie of fashion connoisseurs, critics, aficionados and the fraternity. In the realm of rapid digitisation, runways witnessed a dash of minimalist yet detailed couture paying an ode to the heritage and old world glam. The traditional take of couturiers reflected on their finery and finely tailored ensembles is beyond words, we were gaping in awe the moment pristine whites took the centre stage and paparazzi couldn’t help but do what they are best at. Daisy Shah walked the ramp as a showstopper for Sukriti Akriti and her effortless panache in a taupe foliage gown screamed sheer gorgeousness. Here are some of our favourite looks straight from the LFW’19:

Dhoti sarees are a popular concept penetrating into the Indian runways quite recently with a big bang effect on the crème de la crème who are highly regarding this couture as finery. Ever since Tara Khanna from Made in Heaven made it a statement cult attire, women are largely embracing the dhoti saree trend and how. We are absolutely crushing at the sheer details of this white textured and panelled saree. The saree is paired with a drool-worthy fully embellished and embossed bustier crop top in halter style.

Exotic Reverie

We have had huge moments on the Red Carpets, runways and celebrity soirees, yet this stunning showstopper material has got an air so different. Daisy Shah adorned a taupe crepe silk floor-sweeping gown with unconventional cuts and drapes. We love the knots and soft shoulders highly defined by this cocktail gown. Minimal accessories and stunning flair of couture, you cannot go wrong in this gravitating dress unleashing a diva within.

Pack a punch in daily wear chiffon printed sarees and team them up brilliantly with glamourous blouses to enhance the retro mix look. Seen here during the Lakme Fashion Week’19, models gracefully carried the sarees in a gorgeous draping and elevated the usual style of 90’s with deep necklines, strappy accents, applique work and plunging necklines.
