Lakme Fashion Week: DAY 1 of Fashion’s Fiesta


Yes, its that time of the year when enthralling designs are showcased on the Lakme Fashion Week runway ramp through stunning models.

The show began at 12 noon in Mumbai on 1st feb, 2017. INIFD inaugurated the show with their “Gen Next” collection. As always the first day was dedicated to our future in fashion and began with its Gen Next show with a fresh batch of fashion gurus in the making. The second show of the day was by none other than Delhi-based ace designer, Urvashi Kaur. Urvashi Kaur’s collection witnessed something very unique that was created with heritage hand weaved textiles and also organic textiles. She is known for her bohemian, versatile, and textile-based designs. Another highlight was the Dharavi project. Godrej India Culture Lab collaborated with SNEHA, an NGO which has done extensive work in Dharavi for ‘Fashion Funda – A Dharavi design dialogue’ at Lakme Fashion Week. Ujjawal Dubey’s collection ‘Free and Nothing’ is what summer dreams are made of. With an emphasis on draping and asymmetry, the designer delivered a dreamy line of laid back staples. Anuj Bhutani’s gender fluid collection was presented next. The linen of the collection came with a sophisticated charm. Minimalist pairings and clean but laid back outerwear stood out. ‘Eka’ by Designer Rina Singh presented the spring summer 2017 line in a fusion of vintage watercolor wallpaper inspired block prints, laundered table cloth linen checks, floral chintzy prints with distressed finish, traditional lace inlays and delicate cross.

Varun Dhawan walked for Kunal Rawal at the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2017 and looked dashing as always. The men’s wear collection was presented by Lamborghini at the LFW 2017 Day 1. His collection had a range of  jacket kurtas, Indian three piece set that comprsied of the kurta-jacket-sherwani and long-line bundis.

Amit Aggarwal’s 9pm show closed Day 1 of the ongoing Lakmé Fashion Week. Headlined by an alchemy that beautifully balanced the past and the present, the Delhi-based designer built a collection of the concept of upcycling old saree scraps, creating kitschy, tactile, and racy resort-ready separates.
