Lakme Fashion Week - Black and Gold

Black and gold seem to have an ever-lasting partnership in Indian fashion. This time, they found new grounds for their union. From classic silhouettes, to flowing forms, the color duo made its presence felt across the fashion week shows. A rare, urban sophistication has, fortunately, found its ground in this trend's renewal. Too severe by itself, black finds a softer accent in gold. And gold, left alone tends to become sheer bling, but black tones it down and adds depth.

Loving these looks from the Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive shows.
