What’s happening at the Nikhil Thampi x Lakmé Salon collab?

Text by Wyanet Vaz

“We have tried some unachievable cutouts” Nikhil Thampi talks to us about his biggest fashion gamble.

1. Why is this show different than any other of your fashion endeavours?
“This could be an easy and safe show but we like to experiment. From a presentation point of view, it’s a big gamble. It could be a hit or a miss, but we have given it our 100 percent.”

2. What was your reaction to Lakmé Salons Illuminate trend?
“Metallic surfaces came to my mind since it is in my DNA. When I heard about illuminate and shine, I knew I could incorporate it in our collection. It also has a celestial inspiration and I wanted to not just create clothes but an interesting show with them.”

3. What was the most challenging part of this collection?
“The presentation, since we are trying to do something we have never done on Indian runway. The logistics and technical aspects have drained my soul out.”

4. What is a style advice you want to give to a modern Indian woman?
“Keep your clothes simple so you can style it well. Your personality should come out through accessories.”
