LFW S/R 2012: Day 3 highlights

March 13, 2012

The third day of Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2012 was Indian Textile Day, with some innovative takes on Indian fabrics. Here are the best looks of the day:

Anita Dongre

Name the Indian fabric or textile, and Anita Dongre had used it (from brocades to ikats to silks to chikankari). While the silhouettes were from the 1950s (full skirts, provocative necklines, cinched at the waist), the colours were very 21st century- candy pink, lime, sea green, aqua, peach and muted grey.

Where to wear it: To lunch, the beach, the supermarket, the mall, everywhere!

Vaishali Shadangule

“Khand” (traditional Maharashtrian handloom fabric) turned it into asymmetric drapes, tunics, shirts, kurtas and saris on the ramp. I especially liked her mastery over construction and layering.

Where to wear it: To an arty do, to a high-profile gathering and when you’re feeling quirky.

Debarun

There are lots of ways to wear white. Debarun showed cut work white fabrics layered and contrasted with colours like sky blue, mountain brown, lake blue, pink, tangerine, yellow and forest green. I want to wear this trend this summer!

Where to wear it: To office or big meeting, to a traditional ceremony, moments with the family.

Interesting way to wear a sari

Coorgi and mini styles at Deepika Govind. Appropriate since the collection showcased the best of Southern textiles. Or wear it as a dress!

Interesting look of the day

Luxe Bhagalpur silk was bunched, rouched, cringed, draped, folded, tucked and looped around the sheath dress for an intriguing look. (At Farah-Firdos).

Accessories of the day

Hair accessories at Farah-Firdos. Women with deft fingers can perhaps try twisting some net and pinning it on. (see pic above).

Makeup of the day

Heavy smokey eye at Krishna Mehta (pic below), extended eyeliner at Deepika Govind. Best applied by the pros, and best worn by those who dare!

Customary Bollywood appearance of the day

Shahana Goswami for Debarun. While the sari is not too bad, I preferred the rest of the collection.
