LFW W/F 2010: Fittings in full flow

September 15, 2010

Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2010 is just a few days away. Months of hard work, creativity, tailoring and burning the midnight oil are close to culmination. It’s time designers test the waters before taking the plunge—it’s time for fittings.

LFW W/F 2010 Fittings

Fittings take place a few days before the designer’s show. The main objective of the fittings is, of course, to see how the clothes fit the models. Is the blouse too tight or loose? Is the skirt the right length for the model? Should the black dress go first or the red one?

During a fittings session, models wear the designer’s clothes, walk a mock mini-ramp, even as designers and their assistants finalise accessories, looks, and the order of presentation for the final show.

At the end of the session, the designer’s assistants tag the outfits and accessories with the names of the models and take pictures of the model in the complete outfit as a handy reference.

Speaking Chic was privy to a couple of such fitting sessions, here are a few few pictures we took.
