The much-coveted Lakme Fashion Week portraying an array of flamboyant fashionable styles on the runway concluded recently in Mumbai, India. We were left enthralled with the several depictions of traditional couture mixed with lots of modernity and presented in a glamorous way. Here are some of the best looks we loved straight from the runways of Lakme Fashion Week.
The National Badminton player turned fashion diva aced as a showstopper as she walked the runway with panache in a dreamy rose and champagne-hued bridal lehenga drape. What caught our attention was the designer blouse with a flared tulle skirt that reflected the essence of a princess. Sania looked no less than a stunning sensation and her equally sizzling lehenga drape got us gaping in awe. Pastels are totally ruling the runway and are definitely here to stay.
The 20-something beauty kissed the runway at Lakme Fashion Week welcoming the spring in her step with pretty white ruffled floor-sweeping gown. Contemporary Indian dresses with a touch of fairy fable. We love how effortless trail captivates and uplifts the entire look with a spring in her step and glam in the air.
The Bengali dusty diva Bipasha Basu conquered the runway in an uber-glam fuchsia pink one shoulder kurta and flared skirt. The bright pink hued ethnic ensemble stole the limelight. However, the gorgeous cuts, rich embroidery and embellishments worked up their magic on the elegant silhouette. It seems like the traditional work embroidery is here to stay. We love the tassels falling on the attire exuding the whimsical charm and indeed the one-shoulder kurta is a modern take on ethnic couture.
The luxe gold and cream embroidered heavy silk Kanjivaram saree looks resplendent on Dia’s hourglass figurine. She stands tall in a glorious saree which is a work of art and preserved as the heritage heirloom. Paired with a rich red full-sleeve blouse, it adds a striking appearance with oodles of grandeur and royalty.
