Bazinga! 5 innovative designs during LFW Winter/Festive 2014

Mumbaigloss saw a few innovative designs and unique twists to the already popular fashion. What could be better than wearable runway fashion. After scrutinising a few designers who showcased during Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014, we decided to list 5 most improvised designs during this season. Here is the list:

1. Masaba Gupta

Shilpa Shetty’s gown saree made everyone sit up and take notice on the opening day of Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2014. The cutout at the waist was perfectly complimenting the svelte actress. It is modern yet elegant and is different than the highly embellished versions which have been seen in the past. This can be the next fashion fix for everyday woman who wants to attend parties looking every inch a traditional beauty without carrying the weight of conventional lehnga-saree. It is one of those designs that I can buy off-the-shelf and wear it to the next sangeet.

2. Sonam and Paras Modi & Anushree Reddy

Sheer Anarkali with trousers were seen doing the rounds on the runway. Be it Sonam and Paras Modi design with their showstopper Gauhar Khan, showcasing a sheer skirt like fabric attached to the cropped blouse hem. Or Anushree Reddy’s version of sheer Anarkali with flying bird print captured the free spirited modern Indian woman. The ensemble looks very neat and elegant. It could be the next go-to dress in the fashion circle.

3. Poco & Jacky

Uncomfortable wearing a crop top and showing off your not so perfect midriff? Don’t worry, Poco & Jacky have added a sheer cloth around the hem to make the crop top much more wearable.

4. Payal Singhal

Payal Singhal’s traditional wear was a cross between a lehenga and a kurta-churidaar. A fitted blouse with churidaar; a sheer high-low hem skirt covering the churidaar teamed with a dupatta was unique. It is not as complicated as it sounds and looked great on showstopper Vani Kapoor.  It should appeal to the younger women for sure, especially during traditional ceremonies. 

5. Urvashi Joneja

JLo recently wore a white Versace dress which was a cross between a gown and trousers.  It left many clueless as to what they will call it. Though, JLo looked absolutely gorgeous in that dress. Urvashi Joneja invented a rather less complicated version of it. Her dress is a cross between a jumpsuit and a gown and looks effortlessly chic. This is again something which can be bought off-the-shelf and used for the next soiree.
