5 Lakme Fashion Week Designer Looks Recreated On A Budget

There is something about fashion week season that is very exciting to me – the buzz in the air, pretty people all around, whimsical clothes, a curious sense of style – it’s an eclectic mix of all the things I love.

For as long as I can remember, I have been a part of that endless sea of people, the crowd of curious onlookers that gathers around all things fashionable. I have been a part of that crowd, craning my neck, jumping up high and squeezing through sweaty armpits, just to try and get a glimpse of the beautiful world that lay inside.

I would eagerly wait for the fashion week, special editions, of my favourite magazines, staying lost in them for days and months, soaking in every tiny detail and weaving fancy fashion dreams of someday being a part of the mayhem called fashion week.

I would conjure up scenarios and situations that could somehow magically transport me into this glitzy creative world that was alien to me and yet was such a big part of me. All these scenarios were impractical, unthinkable and outright dumb – Cinderella’s fairy Godmother and a knight in shining armor riding a white horse, would take turns to be the instruments that would help me get to fashion week.

Surprise surprise!! After years of endless dreaming and yearning, this blog and your support have given me a chance to be a part of fashion week. The first season I attended was thrilling, I was ecstatic, I just stood still while the rest of the fashion world whizzed past all around me, finally my world and the fashion world found a way to collide, I could feel the energy in every cell of my body.

This season however I could not make it to Mumbai, I missed the action but not the inspiration. I decided to bring fashion week to LookingGoodFeelingFab in a slightly different and more twisted way this time around.

I took one look each from 5 designers and tried to recreate them using pieces from my closet, I tried to come as close as possible to the designer looks, restricting myself to the confines of my experimental closet.

It was a super fun process and I was surprised with the results..

How did I fare..I don’t know..you tell me..

Go on watch the video..and once you are done, leave a comment below telling me which your favourite look was..
