Inside Lakme Fashion Week
The Fashion Week is over, the excitement is a few notches lower, the flood of tweets has turned to a trickle but the posts on this blog…ahhann…no sir..not done yet..
So in this post I am taking you inside the show area of the Lakme Fashion Week...
Dark rooms are usually associated with nightmares and haunted memories, never thought a dark room can ever take me to a magical place filled with beauty and awe. This dark room did all that and more…
Here are a few facts, images and video clips of the show and the source area..
Ready to go in with me??
The seats are large and cushy, nicely lined up and numbered..since the show had an oriental theme, each seat had a fan placed on it!!
.like light at the end of a dark tunnel, this sign is the only respite..
The ramp is the holiest few meters you will find within a radius of a kilometer of The Hyatt Mumbai. Justifiably, it is kept covered till seconds before the show begins. Like a skillfully choreographed dance, a few dark knights appear, and with one stealthy swish the black covers are off and a glowing ramp appears…
Lakme Fashion Week is a breath of fresh air, unlike the rest of the fashion fraternity known for their no care attitude towards time, LFW is extremely punctual, everything starts and ends by the clock.
Each show slot, has a group of 3 to 4 designers presenting their collections one after the other. Exceptions are the biggies like Manish Malhotra and Sabyasachi who have their own shows..
Although, the shows happen consecutively, it is amazing to see how the same few meters of straight ramp space is transformed and molded to go with the theme of the collection resulting in a mesmerizing synergy.
