5 Top-Tier designs showcased in Lakme Fashion Week
Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) is one of India's most renowned fashion events, and the 2023 edition was no exception. It is an age-old legacy where renowned brands amalgamate with one another once in a year to produce epic design lines. Although there were many exquisite creations on the runway, these five designs were especially noteworthy:
Park Avenue is a premium menswear brand and was all ready to swing in style and pride on the ramp at Lakme Fashion Week in partnership with FDCI. The renowned showstoppers for the event were Shantanu Maheshwari and Rajkumar Rao. They looked stunning in these stellar creations and undoubtedly wowed the audience with their innate charm. They were seen donning outfits from Park Avenue’s 'city casuals' collection, which strives to create “functional” clothing that is apt as office wear and can also be worn during a party or simply lounging around. The actors undoubtedly struck all the appropriate notes, simply because of their unique charm and impeccable flair.
Lehengas have been an age-old festive tradition in itself. As the showstopper for Kalki Fashion, Disha Patani stepped onto the ramp and into the most amazing time of the year with a festive display of a floral ivory lehenga that is true to the brand's trendy spectrum and the star's unique style. She posed in a beige lehenga with vibrant filigree embroidery on it and a bralette blouse that matched and had Disha's favorite detail—a plunging neckline—that bridges the gap between traditional and Western attire. It's evident that nobody does as much justice to traditional designs quite like Disha Patani does when it comes to adding a contemporary twist.
Pallavi Mohan debuted her show "My Journey....Just the Beginning" with former Miss Universe Harnaaz Kaur Sandhu for the brand Not So Serious. It's reasonable to say that the runway transformed into a dream world when Harnaaz stole the show in a captivating purple gown that left the crowd speechless. With its exquisite feather design and stunning sequins, the dress was a work of sartorial art that danced with every elegant stride. The airy playfulness of the feathers gave her an angelic appearance leaving the whole crowd mesmerized.
