Our next designer needs no introduction because his work speaks for itself. Manish Malhotra debuted his newest collection, The Gentlemen’s Club, on the Lakme Fashion Week stage last week. Filled with dark and rich hues, the fashions demanded elegance and grace.
I am salivating over these next few gowns. Each one is more gorgeous than the last with simple embellishments yet drastic necklines. I really cannot decide which one is my favorite!
Not to be upstaged by the ladies, Malhotra outfitted the men with equally royal attire. Printed Sherwanis, deep burgundy hues and embellished jackets made sure the Gentlemen’s Collection would not be soon forgotten.
We will be back tomorrow with more from Lakme Fashion Week!

First up we have the highlights from Nikhil Thampi’s Winter Festive collection, Alchemy. Drenched with gems and sequence this latest collection reminded me a lot of Cleopatra esque designs. Filled with plunging necklines, full bodices, cinched waists and mermaid tailed lengha’s, Alchemy would be fit for any bride hoping to have her wedding in a tropical destination!
Om-Tex presented Krishna Mehta’s newest bridal fashions. Encompassing high necks, colorful prints, ruffles and stamped metallics this collection targeted the bold bride. I particularly love how Mehta toyed with the traditional jacket layering his outfits with different length coats.
Our next designer is a household name who needs no introduction, Payal Singhal. Her newest collection, Mayaa, was filled with black and white patterned beauties. Playing with the cap sleeves, sheer anarkhali’s, long cholis and traditional prints, Singhal made sure her Winter collection appealed to all different tastes and styles. Walking the runway alongside Singhal was actress Nimrat Kaur who modeled the final red and gold traditional lengha.
We’ll be back a little later with Manish Malhotra’s newest men’s collection, The Gentlemen’s Club.

It’s going to be a week full of fashion on IWS because we’re bringing you the best of Lakme Fashion Week 2015. To kick it off we’re featuring a retro collection by fashion mavens Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla who opened the show with their masterpiece, Awani Jaaneman.
Self described as an exuberant Ode to Retro Chic, an era reloaded and repackaged in a fabulous, futuristic avatar, the designers took muted beiges, shiny metallics and retro pops of color to bring this collection alive.
I absolutely adore the addition of the ruffles in an effort to bring more of a 70s chic to the outfits. They are so fun and playful while simultaneously stepping the glam factor up 100 notches.
That’s it from opening day of Lakme Fashion Week 2015. Make sure to check in with us tomorrow as we feature the highlights from Day 1!

We’re heading to a magical land where fairytales happen and colorful parasols just drip from the sky for Priyanka and Digant’s multi destination wedding! Our couple was together for close to 11 years before they tied the knot in their dream wedding celebrations which kicked off in New Delhi and then moved to a castle in Jaipur!
To start they hosted their nearest and dearest to a whimsical Champagne Brunch at the Lodi- The Garden restaurant. Armed with an arsenal of fun props, makeshift Photo Booth and colorful lanterns hanging from the trees, Priyanka and Digant really set the tone for their wedding weekend. As if that wasn’t enough there was also a Magician, A Balloon Twister and Face Paint/Nail Art to keep the kids entertained.
The bride shares:
“The remaining functions took place in Jaipur @ ITC Rajputana (Mehndi & Sangeet) and Wedding @ Jai Mahal Palace. As cliched as it may sound, I always wanted to get married in a palace and i’m glad that dream came true. It also went hand in hand with us consciously wanting a small wedding with just close friends and family and so it was – believe it or not, we didn’t stand on any stage and went from the 35 minute pheras, straight to the bar!! I also loved being taken away in our vintage ride – a 1928 Ford Model A.”
“On the Mehndi, we got a puppet show organized for the tiny tots and Rajasthani folk singers to keep everyone entertained. For the wedding, the decor theme was Rani Pink and Gold and the property is so beautiful in itself that the lesser you add to it, the better! The beautiful petal shower at the Jai Mahal, standing atop a bridge was definitely a highlight for us.”
“The Reception was at the Taj Man Singh in Delhi which was a Black Tie themed event, implemented again by Riveting Events. Digant had got on board a violinist as well as a pianist – Mahesh Agarwal.”
Thank you so much to Priyanka and Digant for sharing their beautiful wedding with us! Make sure to visit the photo gallery to see many more images from today’s wedding!
