We're back bringing you full coverage from Lakme Fashion Week Day 1. The first day of shows kicked off with runway gems from designers such as Nikhil Thampi
, Krishna Mehta
and Payal Singhal
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! Source
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. Source
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. Source
We'll be back a little later with Manish Malhotra's newest men's collection, The Gentlemen's Club.
