5 wearable fashion trends on day 1 of LFW Spring/Summer 2015

Lakme Fashion Week Spring Summer 2015 started with much aplomb yesterday. Here are my five fashion picks from day 1 that you can easily imbibe in your everyday fashion. Here is the list.

1. Tassels:

Manish Malhotra in his The Blue Fashion Runway presented by WEvolve used a lot of tassels to bring in the feeling of freedom. The Blue Fashion Runway represented fashion for a cause promoting a global social message of gender equality and prevention of gender based violence. This display of fashion for a cause left everyone awestruck! Tassels are trending in international fashion as well.

2. Bright candy colours:

Masaba Gupta showed how to rock bright colours like yellow, fuchsia, and purple without batting an eye lid. These colours will perk up your summer look for sure. I also loved the golden shoes with tassels.

3. Electric bold 3D prints in skirts:

INIFD Presents the Gen-Next designer Salita Nanda showed that electric bold prints can give you style quotient in no time. Her collection is inspired by Picasso’s cubist painting, Les demoiselles d’vignon. Her label, Salita Nanda, consists of ready-to-wear hybrid collection, combining digital printing and a series of 3Dprinted fabrics. Salita says, “The collection is an amalgamation of a beautiful piece of art and a touch of pop. The African undertones in the painting translate into prints and symbols like love, beauty and strength.” I loved the patterns.

4. Dhoti Maxi dress, the next word for comfort:

Vaishali Shadangule’s Behrupia collection featured various drapes in traditional threads and fabrics and I just fell in love with this dhoti style drape for this maxi dress. Mixing Khand with khadi Vaishali reinvented the textiles and presented them in modern shapes with intricate geometric construction for dual tone creations. The colours are beautiful and the fabric is light and airy. Perfect for a summer brunch.

5. Layering net over cotton:

ILK by Shikha Grover and Vinita Adhikari used gauze and net over cotton to create layers and textures for their collection ‘Loves me, loves me not.’ The designer duo was consistent with their ILK signature style of adding textures to their fabrics of cotton, net and gauze while preserving the feminine feel to their designs. The best part about this design is that it looks stylish, yet it is comfortable in the summer months.
