Top Fash­ion Moments at LFW

Society - - PRIVILEGED INFORMATION -

FROM blind­ing al­leys of the run­way fes­tooned with dom­i­nant and sub­mis­sive colours, moods mood­ier than the mood swings of a Cance­rian, the Lakme Fash­ion Week un­furled an avalanche of trends to be ab­sorbed in the streets. As usual, the trends sur­prised, shocked and dis­ap­pointed us. Here are some of the moments worth talk­ing about. They rep­re­sent fash­ion trends in the mi­cro con­text and cul­tural re­trac­tions in the macro con­text. Let’s be­gin the show…

CON­SULT­ING AS­TRO­LOG­I­CAL CHARTS

As­trol­ogy played a ma­jor role for em­broi­dery, as shoot­ing stars and golden sun­rays ap­peared on silk crêpe draw­string dresses and cropped denim jack­ets for Man­ish Arora’s Cos­mic Love. In­ter­galac­tic goals, any­one?

LUXE PATCH­WORK

Fal­guni and Shane Pea­cock’s Cas­siopeia fused the depth of glossy shim­mer to the melan­choly of muted tones. The re­sult was a cou­ture gown mil­len­ni­als would ap­prove.

LIGHTS WILL GUIDE YOU HOME

Dia Mirza, show­stop­per for de­signer Kusum and Kar­ishma Luharuwalla, looked ethe­real in an off-white bridal lehenga with beau­ti­ful em­broi­dery. The moody, moon­lit flo­rals in dusty shades of ash rose and blush, slate grey and olive green show­cased the lighter side of the day.

THE AL­PHA(bet) LADY

In­spired by the leg­ends of the Greek and Ro­man god­desses Aphrodite, Hera, Gaia, Artemis and Athena, Nachiket Barve’s col­lec­tion ex­ten­sively used Greek fonts to em­broi­der reaf­fir­ma­tions on gar­ments with words such as ;love, dreamer, bride and god­dess.

THE DAINTY ROCK STAR

De­signer Ritu Ku­mar sent down an army of dainty rock stars led by Disha Patani look­ing stun­ning in a corset bodice dress with an asym­met­ric hem.

TRIPPY DRESS­ING

Who needs nar­cotics when you can get high from fash­ion? For Man­ish Arora’s show, Ran­veer Singh un­leashed a quirk blitzkrieg in his se­quined rain­bow jacket. Talk about happy, shiny dress­ing.
