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 Her first few collections were abysmal but those sugary sweet Barbie inspired collections have gone and have been replaced by boy meets girl shapes in yum fabrics and cuts that are so ON for 2013.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…

Trend Watch: The shirtdress

8th Oct 2012

The shirtdress is one of those key wardrobe staples that gets a spin every season. I’m loving the monochrome print maxi length take seen at Kallol Dutta and Aarti Vijay Gupta, the sheer panelling seen at Bodice & Nishka Lulla (I heart everything Ruchika Sachdeva does) and finally the gorgeous digital prints at Mary Katrantzou and Clover Canyon.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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
