Day 5 being the final day of the Lakmé Fashion Week W/F 2012 was meant to showcase collections presented by the best designers. Prashant Chauhan was one of the few designers who presented his collection on that day. Most of his outfits comprised of floral printed fabrics as well are sheer fabrics in bright colors. His printed pants worked wonders for his collection and created flawless silhouettes.
SS Surya‘s collection was squeky clean… literally! The pure white fabrics, the atomic detailing, and the perfect cut work that was done on all his outfits gave them an elegant appeal. The showstopper wore a fabulous bright red gown which was draped impeccably.
Atithi Gupta‘s collection comprised of several pleated dresses in shades of purples and greys. It was a treat to watch Huma Qureshi (The Gangs of Wasseypur actress) strut down the runway as Gupta‘s show showstopper.
Nupur Kanoi had incorporated the several upcoming styles in her collection. I adored her peplum waist coats the most. For those of you who don’t know what peplums are, they are short overskirts or ruffles attached at the waistline of a jacket, blouse, or dress. Kanoi‘s colorful lace pants made an amazing fashion statement this season. As you guys know I am a lace-a-holic ( I’m obsessed with lace fabric); her lace pants made me wanna say “I wan’t that!” everytime a model strut down the runway wearing them in different colors.
Trend Alert: Peplum tops or waist coats as well as colorful lace outfits are in this season.
Archana Kochar presented a wide range of printed sarees. The sheer printed sarees with black cut out blouses looked beautiful on the runway. Sameera Reddy looked stunning strutting down the runway as Kochar‘s showstopper.
Rajat Tangri’s “La Cosa Nostra” collection was the sexiest collection that I had watched this season. The models flirted with each other as they walked down the runway in their flowy cocktail gowns. I witnessed several outfits made of satin, lace, and shimmer fabrics in shades of pastel pink, teal, and black.
Sailex presented an extremely feminine, elegant, and a colorful collection. The bejewelled outfits consisting of stunning embellishments and metallic peplum took the collection to a whole new level.
Neeta Lulla’s Radha collection kicked off with a graceful dance performed by Hema Malini. Lulla showcased a bridal collection consisting of several pleated lehengas, anarkalis, and skirts in beautiful bright colors.
Trend Alert: You will definitely see a lot of pleats this season.
Kallol Dutta presented a collection with amazing monochrome prints. Kareena Kapoor strut down the runway in spikes and prints, where she was seen donning a printed coat along with a spike-y necklace.
Pankaj and Nidhi‘s collection comprised of white silhoutees with clean cutouts. They incorporated a lot of leather which was tasseled and tied together in most of their outfits. Their showstopper, Kareena Kapoor, was seen donning a leather fringed coat. According to me, the collection looked like a total disaster.
Trend Alert: Pull out your leather jackets, as you will definitely be seeing them this season.
In conclusion, Day 5 was a disappointment as well as the past few days. I expected the finalé to be extravagant, but it surely didn’t live upto my expectations. Well, that’s it for now, let’s just hope for a better season next year.
