LAKME FASHION WEEK DAY 1
Summer Resort’19: Day 1
Day 1 of the summer/resort’19 edition of Lakme Fashion Week had the best of the old and the new guard, with the Gen Next show leaving everyone impressed, and big names like Rohit Bal, Varun Bahl, Gaurav Gupta & Gauri & Nainika stealing the show as always.
Couturier Varun Bahl debuted Varun Bahl Pret with his ready-to-wear collection which was an absolutely brill medley of double georgettes, cotton silk, silk satin, tussar, organza and moss crepe in trending neutrals with a splash of pastels.
GAURI & NAINIKA
The sisters’ ‘Art of Latte‘ showcased all their signature stuff, but we lapped it up as always ‘cos you know we can’t ever get ’nuff of their gorjus tulle dresses with the oversized flowers in the candy colours. And, the shimmery gowns were just the cherry on top of the cake, we mean dresses, really, and we loved the one-shoulder beaut showstopper Yami Gautam walked down the ramp in #coutureqweens
The grand finale of the day was #OG Rohit Bal’s ‘Guldastah‘, which was borne out of a collaboration with Kashmiri weavers, and had his signature neutral beiges, creams and blacks with the most exquisite ‘karaai‘ on it. What really warmed our hearts though was when he closed the show by walking down the ramp with all the weavers involved and presented them each with a rose.
