Lakme Fashion Week Preview - Farah Sanjana

So the Lakme Fashion Week is around the corner, and the pre-week anticipation is thick in the air. The dates for the winter/festive collections are August 16-21, 2011. Despite August being rainy, the decision to prepone the Fashion week from September to August will help the designers get ample time to meet their order demands after they showcase their collections.

For me, one of the highlights of the Lakme fashion Week is the Gennext Show. This is where the future of Indian Fashion unfolds. Where young designers showcase collections, that will change the direction of the fashion scene in coming years. The designs are rough, raw, and very true to the essence of fashion and style. Of course, I love the works of established designers too. But it’s the young designers that I love to watch out for.

One such designer that you all must keep your peepers out for is Farah Sanjana. The young graduate from the London School of Fashion plans to style well-heeled women who have an eye for quality. In the UK, Farah worked a six month stint assisting pattern cutting for designer Vivienne Westwood, and assisted backstage at Paris and London Fashion Week, helping put together a dress for actress Kim Cattrall and working on Hollywood star Anne Hathaway's gown for the premiere of Alice in Wonderland. Following this, she returned home with innovation, quirks and a waste-not ethic, all of which she picked up on the job. She is now ready to storm the Mumbai runway with a crop of clothes that’s sexy and rebellious, basic and androgynous, and sometimes just plain strange. Architectural shapes, origami, detailed metal work, and extremely structured silhouettes are what one must look forward to in her collection.

If these pictures from her Summer and Cruise Collections are anything to go by, Farah’s blend of edgy sophistication with form exaggeration and bold colors is bound to make her a hit at the Fashion Week Debut.

Hi, first of all, thanks for dropping a comment on my last post, appreciate it.
I read your "about me" and I think your mom must be a wonderful lady, always smelling lovely and always being feminine. Not everyone can be drop gorgeous, but everyone can be feminine if they put their mind to it. That in my opinion is the most important aspect when a girl gets dressed.
Have a super weekend.
Colin.
