Best Bridal Buys from Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015

Best of lakme fashion week winter festive 2015 for brides

I know, I know. There’s been a lot of “Best Of” posts lately. Technically, they are the “Best Picks”, so what else do you want me to call them?! Ugh. #bloggerwoes

After Amazon India Couture Week and BMW India Bridal Fashion Week, there was one weekend us bloggers got a chance to breathe (because AICW and BIBFW were back to back!) This blogger of yours, though, did not breathe enough that Independence Day weekend. It was spent thoroughly enjoying late nights and hectic days…with friends. Followed by a trip to Mumbai for work (post coming up next!) which then led to…illness. Yes, I’ve been sick. For a whole week. And I’m still only starting to get better, it feels. I’m exhausted, cranky, sleepy, achy all the time. Maybe I was overworked. I don’t know. I don’t want to talk about it.

I kept an eye on Lakme Fashion Week Continue reading “Best Bridal Buys from Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015”

The Best Lehengas at Lakme Fashion Week S/R 2015

This is the second post in the Best of Lakme Fashion Week series. The first one on the best saris and suits can be found here.

The best lehengas at Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2015

Out of the 80+ designers who showcased at Lakme Fashion Week, only a handful created lehengas I loved. This didn’t come as a surprise because the Summer Resort edition doesn’t really scream bridal, and since lehengas are essentially wedding wear, there were limited options to pick from anyway. Here are the few I loved most for summer and beach weddings.

The Best Saris & Suits at Lakme Fashion Week S/R 2015

I’ve been staring at my laptop continuously for the last 5 days non-stop. Lakme Fashion Week just wrapped up last night, and with all the live-streaming on YouTube and press releases in my inbox, I’m just about ready to go on vacation now. A vacation from my laptop. For, like, a day. Because Amazon India Fashion Week starts in 2 days. Ah, the relaxed blogger life :p

I’ve already written about my favourite show from all of LFW this season: Anushree Reddy. But the other designers weren’t far behind with drool-worthy outfits. Of course, I went through videos and pictures of all 45 shows to save you some precious time you can now utilize on more important things – like planning your wedding, going for a run, watching the latest Grey’s Anatomy episode…whatever floats your boat, really.

Anushree Reddy at Lakme Fashion Week S/R 2015

I haven’t done one of these in some time now. An entire post on a single designer’s collection from Fashion Week. And to be honest, I wasn’t expecting to this month. Lakme Fashion Week is on in Mumbai right now, and I’ve been combing through images from all shows without much hope. For a bride, India Couture Week and India Bridal Fashion Week are filled to the brim with trousseau options – but Lakme Fashion Week’s Summer Resort edition? The chances are slimmer than Deepika’s waist in Happy New Year.
