The event will also provide a platform for fresh designers who possess the talent through the Gen Next shows.
Around 64 designers would showcase their collections in this season.
The first day of the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort had all the trappings of a great start. I started off by a glitzy collection by Rocky S titled Bridal Extravaganza that had Bipasha Basu as the Show Stopper. Black creations were followed by lehengas, saris, and sherwanis in soft pastels and bright solid pastels, all embellished with embroideries and Swarovsli crystals. Together with jewelry by Queenie, there was a high bling element on the ramp.
The greatest cheer was reserved for the last show of the day: Sabyasachi's Africa inspired collection. The clothes and designs here proved themselves as the show stoppers of the event. Skirts, jackets trousers, blouses, and scarves were in colors inspired from Africa with a hint of Paris. They were accessorized by rose tinted glasses and bandanas. Beads and glitter added sparkle to the collection which brightened an otherwise slow day at the fashion week.
