From playful silhouettes to shiny textures- Geisha Designs presented Luminescent- an Occasion wear collection which is both stylish and festive. With luminescent being the overarching theme, the sheen heavy colour palette and fabric texturing evoked visions of a moon-lit night and star-spangled sky.  Besides the masterful use of the visually-arresting silver, the ensembles came to life in luscious jewel tones of ruby, purple emerald, and midnight sky. Gaurav Gupta stunned everyone with his collection and showstopper Sidharth Malhotra. Through crystal burst embroideries, a celestial colour scheme, and cosmic architecture, Gaurav Gupta’s collection captured the meteoric sense. The delicate filigree skill used in jewellery manufacturing served as the inspiration for Abhishek Sharma’s “Dusk” collection. The clothing is a sophisticated fusion of Indian poise modernised. It has a wide range of characteristics that give the wearer an image of bravery and nobility. Bright colours are used extensively, but they are subdued by the delicate gold metal thread and the meticulous hand embroidery.

Day two of Lakme Fashion Week was dedicated to sustainability. Designers like Eka by Rina Singh whose collection was a work with handcrafted and hand-woven Indian textiles to create a new motif language. Exploring block print on handwoven – cotton and cotton silk, kota, linen and blends. The collection which was an ode to the endless imagination of a hopeless romantic, had brighter color palettes to match the enthusiasm of the season’s awakening. On the other hand the collection by Abraham & Thakore investigated the vocabulary and language of modern Indian fashion. They examined both conventional and modern sources of inspiration, drawing on design inspirations that are influencing the conversation about fashion in the present. The brand’s design concept was underpinned by the idea that clothing should last for a long time. To illustrate this idea this season, they took a novel approach and included a few classic pieces from previous collections into new ones.
