Haute from the runway
With festive season in full swing, and the upcoming weddings that demand you upgrade your fashion quotient, here are a few trends taken away from the runway collections of the latest season. Time to put in that extra effort to look your best and make a statement to remember.
This season, blouses made a huge fashion statement on the runway and were a head turner. Manish Malhotra showcased his range with blouses which were all about power dressing; blouses with power sleeves, shoulder pads were spotted in his collection. Very chic looking peplum blouses were spotted in Riddhi Mehra's collection and sweetheart's necks created timeless elegance in Anushree Reddy's designs.
Florals have always been a source of inspiration for designers. This season, designers like Rajdeep Ranawat, Payal Singhal and Nachiket Barve showcased their collection where intricate floral panels along with large floral motifs created an essence of glamour.
Quirky draping and waist candy
Quirky sari draping is another new trend to look out for at the latest season of Lakmé Fashion Week. Punit Balana paired a black embroidered belt with a grey sari and the drape secured around the neck; Padmaja had a saree drape with a knot in it.
Chic looking ruffles were designer favorites on the runway this season. From dupattas to skirts to sleeves, ruffles added glamour to all the attires. Designs showcased by Kaveri, Gauri and Nainika and Divyarajvir among others were seen using ruffles in their collection. The nude beige lehenga paired with a one-shoulder ruffled blouse that Dolly Shah wore for designer Pallavi Goyal too followed the Ruffles story.
Colours of the season
To play safe this season, opt for the evergreen classic colours of celebration. Classic silhouettes with a rich red, pink purple-hued lehenga or saree from Jayanti Reddy, paired with some statement pieces and a classic jutti, can never go wrong with the fashion quotient!
