Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2012: Payal Singhal

10th March 2012

I LOVED Payal Singhal’s last collection and as gorgeous as this collection is, it just for me isn’t as WOW as her last. I love all the new embroidery techniques she’s used- the mix of heavy encrusted stone work mixed with delicate filgree work. The colour palette is refined as ever as is her mixing of jaquards, silks and embroidery. The reason I don’t think its as Wow as her last is down to her silhouettes, she looked to a Midsummer Night’s Dream for inspiration and some of the empire line, dropped waist styles and full bottoms are just not that flattering to the figure. I say this (I’m probably being uber-critical) but she still is one of the best bridal designers and there are a few pieces that will be making their way into my wardrobe!

Absolutely stunning piece!

Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2012: Bhairavi Jaikishan

9th March 2012

I’m catching up with Lakme Fashion Week today and the focus today is Bridal Wear! Well, I’m getting married next year ‘Aggghhhhh!!!’ and its time I get some inspiration. Bhairavi Jaikishan collection’s start of heavily embellished saris in garish colours just scared me (I’m not good with loud colour ways) but they gave way to some lovely lenghas and saris in pretty pastel hues. The sari, Amy Jackson closed the show with was pretty as a peach.
