Lakme Fashion Week Recap

Some of the designers whose work impressed...

Emerging designer Sabah Khan’s Sabashe label let loose a quirky and colorful collection “Tuk Tuk”, (colloquial for the Tangewala or Rickshawala). Finding her muse in the pastel uniforms of the rickshaw drivers and the bright interiors of the rickshaw, Sabah devised a series of trendy, interesting ensembles. From cute bikinis to hot pants, dhoti dungarees, waist coats, T backs - Sabah's inspired summer wear struck a cord with the young and the bold.






Harangad Singh's "Madame Pavone" brought alive the Pre-World War II Fashion decadence with opulent shades like sand, gold lemonade, pink, Tahitian red, sea blue and black. the collection featured maxis, summer cardigans, and flapper dresses from the 1920s shifts, embellished with embroidery replete with fine net, chiffon, seed beads and crystals. Details included pleats, cowls and 3D drapes.

The first collection I don't think I quite like...maybe it's just a different style. The second I find much better! :)

Wow! Definitely different. The models are so pretty there!

Haute World said...

I love how cheerful and funky the Sabashe collection is, though realistically I'd probably end up wearing something Singh designed. Looks like Lakme Fashion Week had a lot of diversity. I missed a lot of that from the fashion weeks of the larger fashion capitals.

Prati,

This collection is beautiful, and I love how there seems to be a playful vibe, combined with both early eras mixed with modern. The bright colours and unique cuts & shapes are innovative and stunning.

I must thank you also for you incredibly kind comment recently. It really meant so much to me, and I'm just beyond flattered by the amazing things you said. It definitely has been a challenging but incredibly adventure of a lifetime in chasing my dreams...and having support from wonderful fellow bloggers like yourself means the world! Thanks again and so glad to have you as a friend.

So cool to see some Indian fashion! I love the Sabah Khan dresses best, such fun colors and styles! Thanks for the nice comment on my blog, it's too bad summers in Mumbai are so humid and concretey! I hope to make it to India one day.

Cheers!

This show looks really fascinating! It's weird one of the models looks exactly like an Italian model here. Talk about doppleganger!

Hope you're well sweetie!
