LFW S/R 2012: Day 1 highlights

March 3, 2012

Best looks from Day 1 at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2012:

Archana Rao

“Frou-Frou” was wearable, practical and minimalistic. Loved the menswear inspiration (structured shirt) combined with the feminine touch (polka dots, sheer fabrics). I got inspired by the mix-and-match styling as well.

Megha Garg

Fluid floating drapes, multiple layers, ombre effects and digital prints on jersey and silk organza. When you wear this, keep your makeup all dark, and you would look goth!

Drashta

Cocktail wear taken seriously. Inventive stuff– inverted seams for unconventional detailing, cropped lace jackets, slashed sleeves for tunics, and a grey coat dress in ribbed silver weave. Drashta at LFW S/R 2012

James Ferreira

Tie-and-dye and bandhini on a single fabric, for very wearable skirts, tops, swirling maxis and blouses. A drape here, a fold there, a tuck in there- good construction!

Masaba Gupta

Ahh, the prints. Warning: for the quirky fashionistas only!

Crazy but interesting looks

Prashant Chauhan

An interpretation of Tibetan attire with use of silk, wool, patchwork and floral patterns. Most interesting bits: baubles of wool, exotic head gear and 3D flowers. (Umm… not sure if the model could see through that).

SoFake by Sapna Bhavnani and Sukriti Grover

Take a look at the pic below. Not an easy collection to conceive, design and execute. Hmmmm!!!SoFake Sapna Bhavnani and Sukriti Grover at LFW S/R 2012

Tanya Sharma

Don’t get taken aback by the “Gaga” look. You could wear the garments as separates for a saner look. 🙂

Special moment of the day

James Ferreira bringing his entire team on the ramp. Not too many designers acknowledge and thank their karigars and creative teams.

Customary Bollywood appearance of the day

There were more than a couple of celebs walking the ramp. My fave: hottie Prateik for Masaba Gupta. But why is he wearing baby pink shoes?
