Day 4 of the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) saw some interesting collections on the runway. Young Paromita Banerjee made sure that fabrics, if cut and played around well, could well result in a collection that makes people talk. And she did just that. Mulmul layered dress, kora handloom
A-line panelled kurta, et al were some the best seen at LFW Mandira Wirk proved once again that she means business when she presented a well made, crisp and fresh look.
What Valentino and, of late, Rosella Jardini did for her label Moschino for S/S ’09 in Milan— the big bow attached on garments —designer duo Gauri & Nainika did in Mumbai with equal finesse at their maiden presentation. Their immaculately finished gowns, dresses, etc, all either had a bow or big roses on them. The red and black and white lines were particularly worth noting.
Swapnil Shinde was like a rocket that didn’t quite work on the runway. Seeing his first five outfits in whites made me sit on the edge of my seat thinking he has evolved. But when the rest appeared, I felt he still has to try harder.
Myoho by Kiran and Meghna was consistent in showing a well made collection. Young Imcha Imchen showed organic cotton jackets, raw silk dresses and layered Chanderi tops.
Anupama Dayal showcased a line up of dresses, kaftans and draped pants while Rehane’s line up had plenty of cut works spanning though the show. Others showed during the day included Neha Agarwal, Vivek Kumar and Virtues.
