Highlights of LFW Summer Resort 17 edition
From patchwork denims to elaborate sleeves, here are the biggest trends from LFW’s 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. Here’s our trend report.
Sleeve a mark
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.
