Lakme Fashion Week is when Mumbai’s fashion elite and Bollywood starlets come out to experience some of India’s most fabulous and eclectic designers. From a circus inspired show by Prashant Chauhan, to Masaba’s simple, sexy presentation of colour blocked saris and graphic print jackets, this season’s fashion week doesn’t disappoint.

 

Masaba

Masaba caught our eye last year when Sonam Kapoor tweeted a photo of herself in a black and white polka dot sari designed by the Mumbai-based designer. The focus for this collection is bright, citrus colours, colour blocking, minimal embroidery, and draping. Style note: Invest in bold, shoulder grazing earrings for a pop of colour in your outfit.

 

Shivan and Narresh

Abstract, monotone, colour blocking and loose fitting wide leg pants. Style note: wide leg, high-waisted pants in a light, silk fabric are a perfect way to feel cool and look amazing this summer.

 

Drashta Sarvaiya

Cinched waists, pleating and peplum details where signatures of this collection, which we thought was more suited to an Autumn/Winter collection than Summer.

 

James Ferreira

Draping, silks, satins, tie-dye, white jumpsuits, and loose, flowy, wideleg drawstring pants. This collection screams comfort and luxury fabrics.
