Highlights of LFW Summer Resort 17 edition
Seamless. That was the buzzword at the 17th edition of Lakme Fashion Week (LFW). While
the five-day event saw the return of acclaimed couturiers like Delhi’s Falguni Shane Peacock and Goa-based Savio Jon after a long break, the regulars at the gala (like Gaurang Shah) delivered surprises by being experimental with everything from sustainable fabrics to androgynous fits.

Sonam and Paras Modi’s lehenga-intense ensemble in silks and satins showcased a shimmery colour palette. “We wanted to bring a summery yet breezy touch to the designs. Hence the use of flowy capes embellished with zardosi and pita work on the sleeves,” shares the Mumbai-based designer duo. A contemporary take on the same, paired with Indo-Western silhouettes was also observed in Pondicherry-based Naushad Ali’s designs.
