Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2014 ended on a high note with the Absolute Salon Grand Finale by Manish Malhotra.

The designer’s collection, entitled “Gloss,” was an amalgamation of long gowns, skirts, saris, and lehenga cholis, all embellished with diamond studded sequins and embroidery work. Speaking about his creations he says, ”My new collection marries the concept of high-gloss with contemporary mirror-work, bringing alive “GLOSS” in a form which every neo-bride is wanting to explore.”

Designer Vikram Phadnis chose earthy shades along with traditional hues for his ensemble. The collection included beautifully designed lehengas, anarkalis, and free flowing kurtas with matching churidars and palazzo pants. Fabrics ranged from tusser to net and brocade in shades of red, green, cream and yellow.

Speaking of his two showstoppers Dia Mirza and Bipasha Basu, Phadnis commented. “This is a milestone in my career and not just the show, I wanted someone with whom I share a great relationship as a showstopper. Dia and Bipahsa, I have known them for years now and our friendship goes beyond clothes. They were not typical showstoppers.”

Designer Arpita Mehta’s “Starlight Collection” was inspired by her grandmother’s love for vintage cocktail dresses and Indian opulence. The fabrics she chose to create the collection consisted of tabi silk, nets, raw silk and flat chiffons. A special embroidery called “button flower,” which has 3D threadwork flowers appliquéd over mirror flowers, were used as embellishments for the ensemble. Foil and other mirrored work was used for her creations as well.

Ileana D’cruz closed the show in a pink high-waisted lehenga choli and dupatta, with foil and mirrorwork.

Shantanu & Nikhil showcased the Himalayan Couture Collection, which portrays the journey of a fierce and graceful woman who brings back harmony in nature through her timeless charm. “The Himalayan Couture Collection is timeless, natural and distinctive. Creating a symphony with nature suffused with imagery of greys, blacks and whites, the collection is an ode to nature and the Himalayas. The contemporary lehngas, concept anarkalis and cocktail gowns aesthetically balance the sharp distinctive form of menswear, through an interesting pairing of round skirts,” explains the designer.
