Lakmé Fashion Week Win­ter/Fes­tive 2016 show­cased sev­eral shim­mer­ing sil­hou­ettes. And de­signer Sabyasachi Mukher­jee’s grand fi­nale was a be­fit­ting trib­ute to the trend of the sea­son. Ka­reena Kapoor Khan, the face of Lakmé Ab­so­lute, was the show­stop­per for Sabyasachi. The fi­nale also fea­tured a per­for­mance by the Sym­phony Or­ches­tra of In­dia.

Sabyasachi’s de­signs have been ap­pre­ci­ated for their ta­pes­try, and for the way they cel­e­brate In­dia’s rich her­itage through hand­loom fab­rics and crafts­man­ship. His col­lec­tion at Lakmé Fashion Week also show­cased sports­wear, along with fab­rics weaved into sal­war suits, kur­tas and saris. Be­jew­elled mi­cro-mini dresses that are per­fect for the up­com­ing fes­tive and cock­tail sea­son were also pre­sented. He says, “Be­ing part of Lakmé Fashion Week, where I also made my de­but in fashion, al­ways feels like a walk down mem­ory lane. It was an hon­our to show­case at the grand fi­nale again and to work with an in­spir­ing brand like Lakmé. I have en­joyed cre­at­ing this col­lec­tion, which has been in­spired by the Il­lu­mi­nate state­ment.”

Purn­ima Lamba, head of in­no­va­tions, Lakmé, says, “Few de­sign­ers can present Il­lu­mi­nate –– a beauty state­ment that has made its mark on in­ter­na­tional run­ways –– like Sabya has for the grand fi­nale. He cre­ated the most mes­meris­ing col­lec­tion, and we are proud to be as­so­ci­ated with a de­signer of his cal­i­bre.”

Ka­reena, who looked beau­ti­ful in the Sabyasachi de­sign, says, “It’s al­ways ex­cit­ing to be the show­stop­per for the Lakmé Ab­so­lute grand fi­nale, es­pe­cially this time around, and to be the muse for Sabyasachi. I love his de­signs and wear them of­ten. His cre­ations for the Il­lu­mi­nate col­lec­tion are fab­u­lous. Lakmé and Sabyasachi are the ultimate com­bi­na­tion on a run­way. I am glad I was part of this.”

Lakmé Fashion Week’s of­fi­cial makeup ex­pert and the man be­hind the Il­lu­mi­nate in­spired makeup, Don­ald Sim­rock, says, “It was my de­but. I’ve had a fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence be­ing part of Lakmé Fashion Week. Il­lu­mi­nate is the big­gest trend ris­ing from in­ter­na­tional run­ways this year. I am thrilled to have part­nered with Lakmé to cre­ate looks in­spired by the trend for a show of such mag­ni­tude in In­dia.”

With Lakmé launch­ing the Ab­so­lute Il­lu­mi­nate range ear­lier, the brand is back with Il­lu­mi­nate 2.0, a range de­signed to cre­ate looks that cel­e­brate the glam­our of shim­mer. It is all about lu­mi­nous makeup. Lakmé’s new line of Il­lu­mi­nate makeup in­cludes the Lakmé Ab­so­lute Il­lu­mi­nat­ing Foun­da­tion, a few must-have metal­lic shades of the Lakmé Ab­so­lute Shine Line, and a lim­ited Sabyasachi edi­tion of Lakmé Ab­so­lute Sun-Kissed Bronzer, Moon-Lit High­lighter and Lakmé Ab­so­lute Il­lu­mi­nat­ing Shim­mer Brick.
