Lakme Fashion Week Spring 2010: Day Two


Rishta By Arjun, Spring Summer 2010, Lakme Fashion Week

Stepping outside the boundaries of ‘season’ was Arjun Saluja’s collection ‘The Melting Architecture’. It started with a dark theme consisting more of structured pieces and ended with more loose flowing outfits. More toned down pieces consisting of the butterfly print and geometric patterns is what I foresee hitting the market.


Nikasha, Spring Summer 2010, Lakme Fashion Week

Nikasha’s collection ‘In Full Bloom’ started off with white to resemble a bud and slowly progressed to colors like pink/coral to reflect a flower in bloom. Intricate floral embroidery marked the simple flowy pieces that consisted of layered tops, wraparound skirts, and capris. While I liked the layered tops, the pink embroidered pieces didn’t leave a lasting impression that would make me go and buy one.


Nachiket Barve, Spring Summer 2010, Lakme Fashion Week

‘Toxic’ was the name of Nachiket Barve’s collection but it was anything but. Inspired by the colors of the dangerous creatures of the wild, Barve offered several dresses with intricate applique details in geometric patterns. The layering of silk with chiffon offered a summery feel but at the same time a formal tone making all the pieces perfect for cocktail hour.


Manish Malhotra, Spring Summer 2010, Lakme Fashion Week

Manish Malhotra presented a Bridal collection instead of Spring/Summer one and while the designs were pretty much the same as seen last season at the A/W show, Manish brightened up the color scheme using more reds instead of beige.

In Nikasha Tawadey

On day two of LFW, Tisca Chopra was spotted attending the Nikasha show in an outfit from the designer’s A/W collection. Although I love the dupatta, am not particularly liking the pairing with the salwar/kurta. I wish Ms. Chopra had worn the vest from the runway instead of the dupatta. What say you?

When the only two ladies the outfit’s been spotted on are the leggy model types, you know it isn’t for everyone! ;)

And if we were to pick, we’d pick Nina’s look over Amrit’s only because it feels far more effortless and far less ambitious to pull off.

Wearing Their Own

Unlike Maheka, designers Nikasha and Falguni chose to wear creations from their latest Autumn/Winter collection with Nikasha wearing a black version of the sheer/solid kurta piece with churidaars and Falguni wearing a modified version of the dress seen on the runway.

Love Nikasha’s outfit, especially the version from the runway. Falguni’s, not so much. You?

In Nikasha Tawadey

Model and Zee TV’s ‘After-Hours’ host Amrit Maghera was spotted at the ‘Rinaldi and Shimmer’ Store launch in a Nikasha Tawadey dhoti-style pants from the designer’s Spring 2009 collection. We loved the pairing of the pants with the sequin jacket but the studded fringed bag, although on trend, was a bit too much for this outfit.

You like?

P.S. We suspect the jacket is also a Nikasha but yet have to confirm.
