LIFW SS 2010- Celebrating 10 years of Fashion

The first day of Lakme Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2010 had an unusual and timeless treat for the fashion lovers in the city - a spectacular show called “Lakmé and IMG celebrate 10 years of fashion”
presented by Samira Habitats. Covering the past 10 years of the fashion week, the theme of the show was Then - Now – Forever: with 20 Lakme Grand Finale designers presenting their looks from “back then”, to now and then finally, the timeless, “forever” looks. The show ran for a full 45 minutes and featured some stunning designs from some of India’s most well-known and prolific designers. Though every design that made a round of the runway is worth writing about, there are some creations that made a noticeable impact on the fashion fraternity present.

Bobby and Manju Grover’s Forever design, a chiffon shot silk grey gown with a metallic Lurex laser cutwork bodice with a dramatic headgear.

Monapali’s Forever, a white net sari with a kantha and mirror work borders.

Rohit Bal’s Forever, his favourite 16 tiered full circle kurta in ivory.

Arjun Khanna’s Forever, a mirror work embellished jacket teamed with a crushed panelled lehenga with gold motifs.

J J Valaya’s Forever, a floral ruffled headgear cum choli with white zardozi lehenga.

Tarun Tahiliani’s fringed dress and gown with corded off- shoulder neckline for Now and for Forever, a draped bronze satin backless dress.

Malini Ramani’s Forever, a fierce, tiger stripes backless mini in gold and black.

Ritu Beri’s dramatic Spanish inspired skirt, presented as her Forever design.

Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s Forever design, a velvet chiffon multi print skirt, blouse and bolero in earthy tones.

Finally, as 20 of India’s most creative minds took the stage, there was, as expected, a standing ovation, marking the end of the fashion event of the decade.

Gorgeous! The detailing on these is amazing and what I love most is that all of these outfits flatter a woman's body. Sometimes designers do go overboard and amidst all the accessories and embellishments forget that women actually need to look good in them. I'd be happy to wear any of these... especially the first dress! :)
