Day 5: Lakmé Fashion Week Summer Resort 2017
Ethereal evening gowns, pristine white midis and subtle, understated lehengas in cream, white and gold all made Anita Dongre’s finale a surreal dream.
Embroidered lehengas and draped kurtas with playful feminine details and cuts put a sensuous spin to Jayanti Reddy’s festive line up.
Gaurang Shah showcased a collection of white traditional wear in muslin interspersed with gold details. We loved how the dupattas were draped across the voluminous silhouettes with careful nonchalance lending a majestic air to the whole affair.
Vrisa’s collection evoked a nostalgic feeling with its classic intricate floral embroideries and patterns. The loose tunics in empire cuts and the flowing maxis made way for a summer of relaxation.
Anushree Reddy showcased her signature floral prints and flowy tailoring in pastel shades of green and pink. She included summer classics like off shoulder tops and loose tunics.
High-waisted pants, safari suits, jumpsuits and waistcoats in sharp modern cuts were seen at Gaurav Khanijo’s show. The palette moved from earthy shades of oatmeal and brown to ivories that were juxtaposed with pistachio, peach and dusty hibiscus.
Divya Reddy’s collection ‘Shahabzadi’ which means princess in Urdu was inspired by Mughal royalty and given a modern day fairytale treatment. Konda Patti cotton and raw silk were woven into regal handloom organic fabrics.
Vineet Rahul stuck to a white and pink colour palette with motifs of the pomegranate fruit, flower and bulbul bird set against the pastel background. Layered cropped pants, appliquéd maxis and white gowns with long-sleeved capes and back tie-ups were the strong points of this collection.
