Talent picks from Lakme Fashion Week
Well...........for a change, we are going to have some serious fashion talk over here today! (Other days, it's just me & my personal fashion)
Actually it all stemmed form the media working full-time on covering the recently concluded Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai. Shows, celebs, show-stoppers & front-row guests got as much limelight as did the clothes, accessories, creativity & fashion. Some designers stunned, while others staled...........but all in all, it was a week filled with fashion at it's best!
Though the stalwarts of Indian fashion & couture, such as Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Manish Malhotra, JJ Valaya & Narendra Kumar, dazzled their audience throughout the country with their exquisite creations; the real gems of the show were the young & upcoming talents who are coming up with visually appealing & aesthetically interesting collections.
I chose to showcase two such young designers & their works here not only because they are extremely creative & telented, but also because their collections are smart, intesresting & chic - a perfect blend for today's urban women. (The fact that both of them are great buddies of mine is just a happy co-incidence!)
My batchmate from the Fashion Design course at National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) has always been one of the brightest & wackiest designer I know. His design sensibilities hover somewhere between pret & avant garde and as a result, his collections never fail to impress. His clothes exhude attitude & style.................and the fact that he designs for both men & women makes him one of the most promising young designers of the country.
Till next time...
