They saved the best for last so we’re skipping to the end of Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2015 to bring you some of our favorite shows.
First up we have the intoxicatingly beautiful runway fashions by Anushree Reddy. Helping her present her collection was none other than celebrity favorites Amy Jackson and Rana Daggubati. My favorite part about this collection, comprised of lenghas, anarkhalis and kurta pajamas, was how easily the looks could translate from runway to wedding aisle.
I love her use of simple pastel colors with the floral prints and embellishments. Each one subtle enough not to overwhelm the outfit but just enough to stand out and make you say wow. I also adore all of her different choli’s. From the high neck, cut out sleeves, bustiers and plunging necklines there is enough variety for everyone.
Bollywood favorite Anushree Reddy is always a difficult act to follow but Arpita Mehta managed to hold her own with her creations entitled The Golden Hour. Filled with elegant gowns, lenghas and churidars this is one collection that lived up to its name.
I absolutely adore this first outfit. Love the traditional style top that drapes down into this gorgeous flow of fabric.
Closing out the show for Mehta was Bollywood royalty Malaika Arora Khan who sashayed down the runway in a gold off the shoulder choli with a high slit skirt.
We will be back tomorrow with the finale to Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2015!

Day two of Lakme Fashion Week was filled to the brim with Sari’s but none of the other designers even came close to Ritu Kumar.
Debuting her collection, Varanasi Weaves, Kumar delivered traditional attire infused with modern day prints and colors. Her most notable staple on the runway was her incorporation of the skinny belt tied tightly around the waist ensuring a skinny bodice with a sari flare.
I’m drooling over this pink sari. I love the sleeveless sweatheart neck choli with the gold border- sexy but elegant!
Make sure to take special note of the next few necklines in this collection. Each one is embellished and unique drawing attention to the collar bone and making a bold impact.
Closing out the show with a bang was Bollywood Royalty Aditi Rao Hyadri modeling a gulabi pink brocade sari, choli and gold churidar!
Make sure to check back in tomorrow for Day 3 of Lakme Fashion Week!

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!
