Friday Fives: Nishka Lulla Lakme Fashion Week A/w 13 collection

6th Sept 2013

Talk about a fashion re-invention. Nishka Lulla’s design direction has done a one eighty and thank goodness for it! Her first few collections were abysmal but those sugary sweet Barbie inspired collections have gone and have been replaced by boy meets girl shapes in yum fabrics and cuts that are so ON for 2013. Actually I have to say she got my seal of approval after that beauty of a A/W 12 collection at LFW and here she is continuing with her chic day luxe vibe…

Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2012: Top 5 Trends

16th Sept 2012

I’m soooo late posting my trend report for Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012. I had started a while ago but it’s taken me ages to pick out five key trends. I blame it on the fact that overall (even though there were flashes of originality- Debarun Mukherjee’s and Yogesh Chaudhary’s are perfect examples.) I found this season’s shows a little flat and lacking in newness. Nonetheless I have picked out my favourite trends for the new season.

By way of Istanbul

Several designers looked to the Middle East for inspiration, playing with traditional Moorish tile prints and a rich palette of Cobalt, Azure Blue, and spicy Saffrons. Anita Dongre’s and Debarun Mukherjee’s collections were especially dreamy.

Bottom L-R Anita Dongre, Tanya Sharma, Debarun Mukherjee

Traditional Weaves

Surface Embellishment took a back seat this season as designers worked with traditional weaves. Beautiful examples of Ikat, Benares and Kanjeevaram were present and showed evening wear doesn’t need heavy embellishment to look rich.

Top L-R Neeta Lulla, Khushboo & Prem, Gaurang Shah
Bottom L-R Gaurang Shah, Anita Dongre, Payal Kapoor

Tutti Fruitti

Yep, I really did name a trend Tutti Frutti! The mixing of fuchsia, yellow, cyan and orange just works and is fabulously Indian. So be bold this season and work this striking rainbow of colour.

Top L-R Payal Singhal, Mayank Annand Shraddha, Neeta Lulla
Bottom L-R Wendell Rodricks, Swati Vijaivagie Jain, Deepika Govind

Sheer/Layering

Layering was a key trend and the looks that were built up with sheer overlays were more successful and flattering than the heavier layers seen at Nandita & Anurahdha

Top L-R Payal Singhal, Nandita & Anurahdha, Vaishali Shadangule
Bottom L-R Roma Narsinghani, Nishka Lulla, Ruchika Sachdeva

Head to Toe Prints

Head to Toe prints were a huge S/s 12 trend over at the big four’s fashion weeks and they’ve filtered over to LFW. Napur Kanoi’s and Yogesh Chaudhaury’s take were bold and beautiful.

Top L-R Kallol Dutta, Yogesh Chaudhary, Napur Kanoi,
Bottom L-R Napur Kanoi, Pia Pauro, Yogesh Chaudhary

Key Shapes to watch out for include: Structured jackets, 7/8th Trousers, Jumpsuits, Maxi dresses & Shirtdresses and a micro trend which will filter through is fringing which was seen at Jatin Varma, Pia Pauro, Pankaj & Nidhi

BIBI LONDON

28th March 2012

Wondering where I’ve been hiding last week? Well, I was in London running around ticking off as many wedding- esqe musts as poss! The ‘boy’ and I visited six wedding venues, two engagement venues, met up with some event planners and after all that I still some how managed to squeeze in a visit to BIBI LONDON.

BIBI LONDON is the ooohhh so stunning new Eastern fashion boutique in Essex offering a carefully edited selection of the very best in contemporary Indian and Pakistani fashion. They stock in-season collections by Bollywood favourites Neeta Lulla, Shymal and Bhumika, Tarun Tahiliani and my fav Payal Singhal in a fabulously chic interior with a personalised service (the boutique is appointment)

Payal Singhal

(For the eagle -eyed this is current season and resort summer 2012 will be landing in store in the next couple of weeks)

BIBI LONDON also stocks U.K wedding couture designer Mira Taylor. I met Mira a couple of years ago at a mutual friend’s wedding, not only did I love the gorgeously romantic outfits she designed for the bride I loved the sari’s she wore at the events. (she was working pretty florals even back then!)
