Top Designer Dresses from Lakme Fashion Week Winter 2014

From the recently concluded Lakme Fashion Week’s Winter Festive 2014 edition, here are my top picks of beautiful Lakme Fashion Week Designer Dresses. These designer dresses created by some of the best Indian designers. I have picked each style because I liked the colour, styling, detailing or the look presented on the ramp. You have my comments in the caption for most of the dresses.

I initially started creating a post to pick out the top 10 dresses only, but soon realised that with so many amazing dresses that this is not going to be possible! Ive classified the photos by the day on which they were presented to make it easier for you to look for specific designers, in case you are interested.

Anita Dongre at Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 14

Anita Dongre has to be one of the most talented Indian designers out there. Her collections are exquisite and the pricing is just right. She is the must have designer for any bride looking to shop for her wedding.

In fact, i’d even say that guests and family members should look at Anita Dongre’s Bridal Collections because they are absolutely stunning. The colours, the detailing, everything is just in the right balance of creativity and commercial(ity).

I loved the use of unusual colours in her styles. Everyone is used to seeing Red, Pink and Yellow on brides, but this designer has taken bold steps and used Black in a way that is elegant and could certainly be considered by a bride.

There were also the traditional colours including midnight blues and rani pink’s. A lot of interesting separates on the ramp made the collection quite interesting for me. Vests and jackets could be picked up separately and worn in combination with say an anarkali or a salwar suit.

Finally! Vijay weds Amala Paul!

director Vijay and Actress Amala Paul

 

Actress Amala Paul, who is set to marry Tamil filmmaker Vijayon June 12, has roped in two of the country’s well known designers Anita Dongre and Sabyasachi Mukherjee to design her wedding outfits.

While Indian’s famous Fashion designer Anita Dongre will design Amala Paul’s engagement gown, the bride’s wedding reception outfit will be a creation by Mukherjee.

“For the ring engagement ceremony on June 7 in Kochi, Amala Paul will be seen in Anita Dongre’s white gown. It has been specially ordered for the occasion. On the same evening, she will be seen in a traditional lehenga,” a close friend of the family said.

“For the wedding, which is on June 12, Amala Paul will be draped in a Kanchivaram sari and later in the evening during the reception party, she will slip into Sabyasachi’s creation and wear a specially ordered diamond necklace to go with it,” the friend added.

The engagement ceremony is expected to be attended only by the couple’s close knit family, whereas the wedding and reception will be graced by special guests from the southern film industry.

In 2011, Amala Paul and Vijay fell in love on the sets of Tamil drama Deiva Thirumagal, directed by the latter. Since then they have been dating each other.

Finally, after such a long love story takes a new turn . Vijay weds Amala Paul.

Post wedding, Amala is likely to stop acting as she wants to settle down and have a family.She is currently wrapping up shooting for Malayalam film Mili, while Vijay is awaiting the release of his latest Tamil directorial Saivam.
