Lakmé Fashion Week winter/festive 2016

So after skipping three seasons of my favorite Indian fashion event –Lakmé Fashion Week , i decided its time I make myself at home! And I attended the Winter Festive 2016 held at Beautiful St Regis in Mumbai during 24th to 28th August! It is always pleasure to witness creative crowd and their creativity being unfold right in front of you. I really enjoyed every collection that I watched but I couldn’t help but love Gaurav Khanijo, Cord, Kallol Datta and Kriti Tula!

Talking about my look- I wore Indian by Manish Arora for KOOVS bomber jacker, tank top and drop crotch harem pants. I chose Guiseppe Zanotti hightop sneakers for my love for HipHop and a  cluch from Aliexpress.com . My look is well below 6000 INR excluding the Zanotti sneakers.

Gen Next designer at Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2015, Manish Banshal Presented his all-menswear collection that took inspiration from casino and game of gambling. Innovative collection by the designer offers various options to the men who prefer to keep it on edge and is never afraid to experiment. Discreet minimal prints appeared repeatedly on shirts, blazers, shorts, bomber jacket and tank top. White and grey were the major shades. Knit kurta with kangaroo pockets and thigh long coats were one of my personal favourites. In my opinion, Manish must have been the first designer to put a skirt on men for Indian ramp. The prêt collection with slight feminine touch addresses well to the fashion conscious guys like myself.

Bejewelled by Sengar

FotorCreated

I am forever in love with this super chic bracelet that I received yesterday from designer and my friend Lalit Sengar. You know that thing when you see someone cute and he/she smiles and your heart kind of goes like warm butter sliding up the hot toast, that’s what it’s like when I see accessories. Only its better!  If there is love at first sight, this was it. I saw it on the ramp at Lalit Sengar Spring Summer 14 show during Lakme Fashion Week. Bollywood actor Purab Kohli walked the ramp wearing this utterly hip bracelet and I knew this was It!  This bracelet being one of most favourite accessories I spotted at Fashion Week, I was hopping freaking mad receiving this. And that doubled when Lalit told me that this is the original piece used during his show and worn by Purab. You can read more about his collection here or browse through his creations here.
