30 Favourite Finds at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016!

I’m a Lakme Fashion Week girl, any day. Why the tiff with Amazon India Fashion Week? Well…

One,

I don’t get it. Why does AIFW showcase designs for the NEXT season? I fail to get excited about full sleeves and warm silks while I’m sweating it out in Delhi’s heat. And by the time the next season is finally here, that post about favourites from AIFW is so deeply embedded in the archives, I don’t think most non-fashion fanatics will make the effort to look over it again. The excitement is greater if you’re showcasing clothes people will get to wear in the next 3 months!

Two,

I’ve never physically attended LFW, and knowing that it takes place in Mumbai has left me with some dreamy assumptions of how perfectly LFW gets executed. I assume shows start on time, people stand in queues to enter, no one pushes anyone and each publication has a reserved seat in the media section. I assume the bloggers get as much respect as bigger print publications, that no one sits on a seat meant for someone else, and that people in the front 3 rows don’t ridiculously click images with iPads (that annoyingly obscures the view of anyone sitting in the back rows!) Of course, these are all dreams of a fashion week I’ve never actually attended. If you have, tell me it’s all true! 😉

And even though Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016 wasn’t specifically aimed at brides to be, I found plenty of beautiful clothes to love. Continue reading “30 Favourite Finds at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016!”

Anushree Reddy at Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2016

Unlike Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2016, the recently concluded edition of Lakme Fashion Week did not disappoint. Although it would be unfair to compare an Autumn/Winter collection with a Summer/Resort one!

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”

Guide to Fashion Weeks 2014-15: Bridal Edition

Guide to Fashion Weeks in India 2014-15 Bridal Edition

And a little bit of Fashion Week 101.

If you are getting married in the next 6 months, and are looking to buy your wedding lehenga and trousseau now, you’re worried. The next set of Fashion Weeks are still 3-4 months away. Where are you supposed to research the latest in bridal fashion, so that you don’t accidentally end up buying a 2 year old style? That is, of course, if you care about that sort of thing.

Google baba?

Unless you have a friend who works at a fashion magazine, you’re going to be one hell of a confused bride trying to find the latest in bridal fashion on those 20 websites you’ve just googled. If you’re not a regular fashion week follower, you’re going to have a hard time keeping all the S/S, S/R, A/W shows from merging into each other and leaving you blurry-eyed.

Well, I am that friend. And that regular fashion week follower 🙂 And I put together a guide to all the freshest fashion from the last 12 months for brides. You’re welcome!

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.

10 Best Shows from Lakme Fashion Week for Brides and wedding guests

Lakme Fashion Week just wrapped up a few weeks back, and if you’re a bride to be, looking for your trousseau here can be pretty overwhelming.

With 40+ shows and almost 80 designers, where should you even begin looking?

Right here, of course!  Continue reading “10 Best Shows from Lakme Fashion Week for Brides & Wedding Guests”
