Lakmé Fashion Week Day 5: A Starry End
Megha Garg opened the last day of Lakmé Fashion Week with her collection that showcased special techniques of pocketing and quilting sequins between fabrics. Known for her signature sari-gowns, Sonaakshi Raaj presented flirty sensuous silhouettes with meticulous detailing. The highlights of Pallavi Singhee’s collection were cutwork embroidered maxis and tie-and-dye pencil dresses.
Straying from the usual hustle and bustle of colour, Vikram Phadnis’ collection this season was all about earthy tones. Dual-toned garments, mirror danglers, embroidered palazzos and the use of gold zardosi enhanced the collection.
Detailed hemlines, asymmetric and layered garments were the main focus of Priyadarshini Rao’s collection. The colour palette included pale sky blue, porcelain green, jade, teal, emerald and turquoise.
Varun Bahl’s collection was a complete line-up of jackets, trousers, skirts and shirts all splashed with timeless hand-embroidery. His signature rose motif appliqués were evident along with embroidered flowers and leaves on the ensembles.
The grand finale was a fancy showcase by master couturier Manish Malhotra who played with contemporary silhouettes and avant-garde styles. Kareena Kapoor walked the ramp in in a glittering silver low back kurta over a panelled lehenga and a sensational grey tulle with rose motifs and lace. Spotted in the front row was a starry clan who turned up in full support, as the curtains came down on yet another flamboyant fashion week.
