Lakme Fashion Week 10th-12th Part-I

The Lakme Fashion Week has captured the fantasies of most of us who swear by fashion. While I've been enjoying the minute by minute updates on twitter from Vogue India, I have to admit, its only when I pushed myself to write this blog post did I go through all the collections. Since there are a myriad of new designers who have debuted on this awesome forum of LFW, there were many shows that I covered while working on this post. This is Part-I(shows from 10th to 12th) where I showcase some of my favourite picks from all these gorgeous designers. Also, designers to look out for.
Anna-Liza Ganguly and Anita Walia
Collection: 1980's rebellious style, accented shouldes, short dresses with gaudy tights, mixture of shimmer and matte, chunky golden neckpieces as seen in my favourite pick.
Arpan Vohra
Collection: Nautical, beautiful turquoise, whites, rope detailing and seen on the belt here, outdoorsy dresses, perfect holiday wear. The color spray on this dress just spells a cruise holiday to me.
Kiran and Meghna
Collection: Use of silks, dash of colorful prints across the fabric, Moroccan inspiration, Tunics, angrakhas commonly seen. Also, very fluid.
Little Shilpa
Collection: Known for her accessories, this time she dazzled all with the oversized flowers and heart necklaces, bouquet crowns for the hear, detailed neckpieces. Overarching use of flowers.
Manish Malhotra
Collection: Needless to say, the flouncy ghagras with rose embroidery, net and tulle with swarovski work on chikankari was the order of the day. (Excuse the personal bias, I'm a big fan :D )
Masaba Gupta
Collection: Again, I'm a big fan and I was floored with her very Masai-tribe inspired collection complete with footmark motif on the capes, bold color blocking in the maxis, rusts, oranges and the beautiful polka dots. Also look out for: exaggerated hair styles and pop colored shoes.
Sabyasachi Mukherjee
Collection: Inspired by 'Save the Tiger' Project, earthen shades and tones, use of Indian textiles, Rajasthan inspired colors and prints. This maxi dress had me sold from the word go.
Shivan and Naresh
Collection: Fluid lines, use of two-toned crepe, dresses and tanks beautifully colorblocked. Massive international appeal. No surprise, I say. This dress reminded me so much of the Loewe color blocked piece I used for the Spring Trend Report from style.com, HERE.
There was no dearth of talent and there was certainly no dearth of appreciation for this talent either. LFW is after all, the most awaited event of all fashionistas' social calendar :)
Part deux..look out for it.

Also, just bouncing this off..Anybody up for a Fashion Bloggers' Meet-Bangalore? Lets hear this :)
