Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai – Winter Festive 2014 – Part II

So here is my second instalment from the Lakme Fashion Week (you read part I of the post, right?) ! The glamour continued on the ramp, but I had expected more. A lot of the big name bollywood stars that you’d normally expect to see at the Lakme Fashion Week were not necessarily present. A curious phase.

All the same, the clothes have been absolutely fab and I am loving every minute of the shows and the pictures that are being posted by Lakme Fashion Week officially (my source of the pictures).

The shows from this post that I really liked were Anju Modi and Sanjay Garg. Each of these designers created something very magical on the ramp, for different reasons.

The fabrics used and the styling were very simple and exquisite. I especially loved the fact that there was no attempt to do too much, like designer’s sometimes do, but there was a confidence in the collection. The strength that this confidence adds to the styling cannot be easily described.

The colours were perfect for an Indian Wedding Dress – rich tones, brocades and a lot of splashes of gold – very important for me 🙂

Anju Modi

I loved Anju Modi’s collection. So effortlessly elegant and chic that it made me drool. The styles and the detailing were absolutely amazing, as is to be expected from a senior designer like Anju Modi. The colour scheme was perfect I think – very different and unusual for an Indian Bride, but exquisite and beautiful all the same!
