When the events are glamorous, the collection has to match their splendour, so Arpita selected raw silk, tabi silk and chiffon in dramatic hues of gold, Sindoor, emerald and finally stunning black. The embellishments were elaborate and lavish as intricate mirrorwork and cut Dana embroidery along with salli fringes and innovative suede appliqués added to the highlights of the ensembles.

To further accentuate the glitz and glamour of the creations, Arpita brought in dull gold work. The sexy silhouettes, the fluid flared creations and the dramatic styling heightened the fashion quotient.
It was a veritable feast for the eyes as the first model in a stunning gold gown glided on the ramp. Soon there was a profusion of glamorous Red Carpet entries like the off-shoulder choli with an emerald green raw silk dazzling Lehenga, brown layered kurta with gold bolero and tiered Sharara. The Grecian gown was over sleek pants, while the printed draped pant, cowl salwars with a tiny choli with long trail and the black deep ‘V’ neckline kurta were eye catchers.

Ending the show was ravishing Bollywood beauty Malaika Arora Khan, who sashayed down the ramp in an arresting gold off-shoulder choli with a panelled net trail and fitted slit long embroidered skirt    
For the Winter/Festive 2015 season Arpita Mehta’s “The Golden Hour” will create the perfect glamorous ambience for bridal as well as occasion wear.

Roused by one of the most commonly visited market places in the country, Aarti found genius in the form of verdure. The organic produce was photographed with finesse and turned into photo prints as well as painted in-house and translated onto garments. The feature that set off the whole collection was the revival of Indian farmer’s Gamcha checks that were paired together with the prints to create the exuberant compilation that was showcased on the ramp. 
Aativijay Gupta

Textiles used, headlined hand-woven Jamdani, worsted wools, pashminas and mulmul that had been used as the canvas fabric for the art work giving the line a polished look. The colours that virtually appeased and gave the collection it’s chic look, consisted of muted dark biscuit browns, oxblood red, ochre, leaf green and beige. Silhouettes were anti-fitted and aimed at fitting a wide variety of clients. It subsisted of adjustable waist trench coats, big pleated skirts, adjustable wrap around skirts, buttoned work-wear shirts and farm aprons.

The two male models wore suits, monochromatically checked with photo prints of gourds and other vegetables spread out on the garments. Silhouettes that stood out from the women’s wear were the structured coat blouse paired with a belted sari and a wide legged pair of pants with pegs worn with a crop top and a trench coat.    
The designer Aartivijay Gupta demonstrated the very innovative collection ‘Mandi’, while managing to stay true to her distinctly whimsical point of view and incredible craftsmanship.

Piyush Dedhia’s idea of making commercially viable yet trendsetting outfits highly paid off as the models strutted down the catwalk in finely tailored attires. The silhouettes ranged from oxford shirts with complementary colour pocket details to military jackets and colour blocked shirts paired with striped blazers and ankle length trousers.

http://aquaintperspective.blogspot.in/, Piyush Dedhia

A semiformal twist was included by pairing a casual kurta shirt with a blazer and a trouser for a modern-gypsy look. It appeared to be the ideal option for the funky hunks, who willingly experiment with their formals by adding a dash of playfulness to it. The colour palette weighed more on the darker tones such as teal, smoky grey, charcoal black, cobalt blue and a hint of tangerine and white to balance the equation. High quality suitings fabrics were used to create an all seasonal look-book for the working Indian men.

Piyush Dedhia with his label ‘SOL’ revolutionized the often bland men’s wear fashion with a rather daring approach by giving the classic apparels a groovy makeover.

Reliance Trends Presented Tarun Tahiliani’s Exquisite “Easy Glamour” Prét-A-Porter Collection At Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015
Mumbai, 30 August, 2015: Tarun Tahiliani’s “Easy Glamour” collection was an eclectic line of the perfect prét-a-porter offering presented by Reliance Trends at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015.
The ramp was covered with graphics of “India Modern” visuals, which is the inspiration for most of Tarun’s designs. A full length mirror on stage and a rack with clothes; had as the backdrop, a very stylish video featuring model and Bollywood actress Lisa Haydon modelling Tarun’s collection.

International model Ujjwala Raut opened the show with a looped black will-powered midi, which was followed by a great mix of black creations with occasional bursts of colour. Printed dolman sleeve top, sleek sheath, poncho draped skirt and tabs held in place flowing printed scarves on tunics, while patterned gilets added style to shorts.

Going for easier silhouettes that featured a SoHo style, capes, capelets, jumpsuits and saris were the focal interest. Tarun’s women’s wear line had intriguing construction and exotic prints with a marked Russian influence of vibrant stripes and the tribal gypsy elements were contemporised with leheriya prints. The black and white striped cascading top and the asymmetric kurta with leggings, will-power corset dress, the black dhoti sari and choli brought a great fusion story. A maroon jumpsuit with embroidered printed belt and lungi dress were interesting diversions.

There was a profusion of carpet weaves and dramatic borders in shining shades of rust, olive and blue. The kaftans, tunics and shift dresses created easy, relaxed dressing options.
The jumpsuit-sari, an innovation by Tarun, had the pleats and draped dupatta, which was a great concept to step into and zip up. Peplum quilted gilets in winter shades of steel grey and black were ideal for cooler climes. Satin draped lungi cowl gowns, saris with velvet obe belts and printed Tees with satin dhotis, were great in construction and style. The kedia style blouses with skirts, woven embroidered pencil skirt, attached cape to blouses and the mini kaftan with a skirt added variety to the collection.

For formal wear Tarun picked a rich colour format of yellow, emerald, rust, teal and aubergine, which were just right for festivities. Velvet hemlines added sophistication to body-con saris; while 3D floral visions looked fabulous on kalidaar jackets. Mughal motifs were splashed lavishly on the creations, but black and gold had silk embroidery with golden flecks that moved to darker tones for ultimate drama.

Bringing a glamorous end to the show was the lovely Chitrangada Singh in a black draped gown and velvet cape splashed with gold embellishments.

Tarun Tahiliani’s “Easy Glamour” collection presented by Reliance Trends once again emphasised that the “Czar of Couture” can create a magical prét-a-porter collection for women.

MRINALINI CHANDRA OPENED DAY FOUR AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2015 WITH HER “MATHEMATICS OF SORTS” COLLECTION
Mumbai, 29 August, 2015: For Mrinalini Chandra Mathematics was a subject that baffled her during her childhood. To pay homage to her “favourite” subject Mrinalini’s collection called “Mathematics of Sorts” opened Day Four at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015. But while the subject may have been the bane of her life, the collection was a stunning amalgamation of creatively designed numerals that was an awe inspiring presentation on the runway.

No woman could have ever imagined that from the binary systems to the abacus, equations and numbers, these inspirations could turn into conversation stopping jewellery for her. 
Mrinalini Chandra
http://aquaintperspective.blogspot.in/, Mrinalini Chandra

Using expert jewellery making techniques like rawa, navratana, jadai and nakashi, the craftsmanship moved to amazing heights. Elaborate giant shoulder dusters with the Number 5 artistically used were outstanding. Necklaces stretched from neck to navel and featured geometric symbols, while jagged linked triangles worked beautifully for hair-cum-ear ornaments.
Mrinalini Chandra
http://aquaintperspective.blogspot.in/, Mrinalini Chandra

Chandeliers and chokers were worked with numerals while waist bands and armlets were done with circles. The multiplication sign was a huge “V” collar and back drape. Graduating necklace, bolero and belts with numbers and a neck to waist necklace were stunning. Size made a difference for the jewellery and it was at its extra large limit. The final Pi sign was turned into a gold trail over a sari pallav.

When a woman wants to add glittering stylish numbers to her jewel box then she needs to choose from Mrinalini Chandra’s “Mathematics of Sorts” collection to make a calculated impact.

The Munkee.See.Munkee.Doo label by Teresa Laisom and Utsav Pradhan reinterpreted fashion norms at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015. Their collections have always been adventurous and designed by pushing the creative envelope to its limits.

When it came to appliqués, the duo was very relaxed allowing them to appear like peeling wall paint but the darts of the garments got the inside out stitched treatment. With various weights of cotton blends and knits as the basics, the collection also included acrylic wool with embroidery to create a hand knitted surface texture.

ARUNIMA MAJHI MYSTIFIED THE AUDIENCE WITH HER LUSTROUS “LAYLA” COLLECTION AT JABONG STAGE DURING LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2015 
Mumbai, 29 August, 2015: What do we know about Goths? Not much, though one can lean on Arunima Majhi for perfectly portraying them. “Layla” was a neo Goth Street Wear collection deriving its roots from the Black Parotia Birds presented at Jabong Stage during Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015. These ‘Birds Of Paradise’ spread their skirts out and danced on the forest floor like Ballerinas. 
Arunima Majhi

Gliding over the catwalk, the models looked divine in deconstructed eveningwear. Androgynous cuts infused with kimonos and shirts gave an edgy and mysterious look, while the twists and skirts swirled around with an almost balletic feel.

Arunima Majhi’s core hue for this line was black, which brought to life the enchanting gothic look, inspired by the feathers of the Parotia bird. Hints of beige, grey, royal blue and amber added to the ethereal feel of the line. Block and screen prints depicting the Parotia bird further, added to the organic soul of this collection, which was a tribute to nature.
Arunima Majhi
http://aquaintperspective.blogspot.in/,Arunima Majhi

Keeping Indian textiles and handlooms in mind, Arunima Majhi used indigenous fabrics like raw silk, Chanderi and cotton silk to bring this vision together. The designer made use of white embroidery in motifs of the Parotia bird on these ingenious fabrics. She also made use of the trending cowl drape in capes, gowns and dresses. 
Arunima Majhi

An asymmetric, flowing black gown with the majestic bird embroidered right in the centre was a complete stand out of her collection. Another garment that the audience awed at was a printed, double layered, frilled skirt teamed with a sheer black frilled top.

The “Layla” collection by Arunima Majhi was dramatic yet simple, sweet, strong perfectly depicting the mysterious ballerina created for today’s Nocturnal Goddess.
