Lakme Fashion Week AW 2014 Top Trends
Lakme Fashion Week just wrapped up but its effects will be felt right through the festive season ahead of us. The fashion extravaganza that Lakme Fashion Week is, did live up to its fashionable reputation trough the Autumn Winter 2014. What a treat it was for any fashion lover and what creativity was put on display.
Every Lakme Fashion Week show was magnificent with its own identity and personality. However if I had to pick 5 trends for the season that are sure to trickle down to Bollywood and then on to the streets, these will be it.
The dhoti traditionally a garment for the men, has taken over women’s fashion with a vengeance. The dhoti silhouette ruled the runway this season of Lakme Fashion Week A/W 2014. It was seen in various avatars, the dhoti sari, dhoti pant and even the dhoti drape and fall in skirts. If there is just one trend that you adopt this season try the new dhoti. It has the convenience of pants and te comfort of skirts and the romance of the dhoti’s drapes. I love the trend and you are sure to see a lot of it here.
The Midi and Maxi
Its time to say goodbye to those outrageously tiny mini skirts and dresses because the hemlines have just been dropped a few inches and I am thanking the fashion Gods. This season is all about the midi and maxi lengths. Trust me these lengths can look super sexy too.
The Jacket and Layers
Winter is all about layering and this season is no different. Lakme Fashion Week showed us how the jacket is possibly the most versatile garment ever created. This season pair the jacket with the anarkali, the skirt, the pants, that midi dress or even with a sari. There is a jacket for every occasion, every ensemble, every mood, every body type – just go experiment and find your perfect winter partner.
The Weaves And Indian Textiles
If there was one day of the Lakme Fashion Week that left me awestruck and amazed, it was the textile day. There will never be a better time to dig into your mothers closet and bring out all those sari’s and dupatta’s which have been meticulously wrapped up in mulmul and stored in the almiras. Indian textiles have been given the most contemporary designs and transformed into something that even the most modern dresser cannot say no to.
There is no room for fear this season. The colours are deep, bright and super bold. One solid colour from head to toe or a few bold colours put together is the way to go this festive season. Colours are a part of our tradition and heritage – its time to flaunt them all.
So these are my picks of the 5 trends to adopt from this Lakme Fashion Week.
