A Spectacular Grand Finale At The LFW Showcased The Fashion and Beauty Of Tomorrow


On 16th February 2020, the most awaited show at the end of five days of fashion has always been the Lakmé Absolute Grand Finale! A show that has been iconic as it brings together the latest fashion and beauty trends. A true extravaganza!

For Summer/Resort 2020, designer Amit Aggarwal put up his first-ever Grand Finale showcase, a collection inspired by Lakmé’s beauty theme of ‘#Betterin3D’, against a backdrop of the iconic Mukesh Mills in Colaba. The star of the event, Lakmé Brand Ambassador, the gorgeous Kareena Kapoor Khan returned to the runway in a structured and elegant gown made in a stunning shade of green – that once again proved that she is the ‘ultimate queen of the runway!’

The new Lakmé Absolute 3D collection is based on the theme #Betterin3D, which is all about matte with a hint of shine. Kareena was also spotted wearing a stunning lip shade from the new range adding depth and dimension to her showstopper look!

 Amit Aggarwal’s finale collection, named AXIL, was a perfect fit within this theme, as it was built around his vision of the future. Just like 3D makeup. In this collection, he showcased his signature aesthetic of futuristic biomimicry and allowed the audiences to journey into a multi-dimensional future that is empowered by juxtapositions. On the Grand Finale runway, the couture created by the visionary designer, stood out as he managed to create the perfect amalgamation of both structured and free-flowing designs, with razor-sharp constructions, intricate patterns using unusual polymers woven into the fabric – to create the ultimate 3D forms!

 To me, AXIL, is a vision of the future as I see it. Every garment is designed to bring alive your vision of the world as it should be – a world as it will be when generations ahead of us embrace it with the same vision! I used rich fabrics in the collection and some classic colours; hues of greens, ivy, dusted mauves and rich berry reds – some of these shades, were inspired from the new 3D makeup collection by Lakmé. The theme #Betterin3D resonates with my design philosophy and I’m glad we got a chance to bring this futuristic collection of fashion and beauty alive” – Amit Aggarwal, Lakmé Absolute Grand Finale Designer.

“Lakmé Absolute Grand Finale has always been special to me, but this year with LFW celebrating 20 years and me celebrating 20 years in the industry – made it extra special. I loved how Amit’s collection interpreted the #Betterin3D theme, the whole show with fashion and beauty was futuristic. I especially love the new 3D makeup collection, but I must say that the lipstick shade I’m wearing tonight, ‘Elegant Pink” really enhanced by showstopping look. The matte effect with a hint of shine added a new dimension to my look that just stood out on the runway!”, said Kareena Kapoor Khan, the showstopper and Lakmé brand ambassador.
