TERESA LAISOM AND UTSAV PRADHAN'S CONTEMPORARY URBAN LINE HAD FASHION CONTRASTS AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2015
The label "Munkee.See.Munkee.Doo" by Teresa Laisom and Utsav Pradhan was inspired by contrast factors for this collection during Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Report 2015.
Combining the theme of sweetness and violence with the increasing crime rate against women, the duo presented a fashionable twist to the subject by adding weapon prints to their ensembles.
Playing with cottons and shades of blue, mint, lavender and charcoal but inspired by the work of digital artist Hsiao-Ron Cheng; the pair unleashed a line of dresses, jumpsuits and blouses with the gun motif embroidered prominently in all its fierce form. Balancing the collection were assorted pleats that gave the garments a hint of feminine flounce.

Side pleats appeared for a white blouse, while the gun print was the highlight of a layered shift. Pleats moved from the sides to the front of the garments and then onto the hem. The double breast blouse had a pleated peplum, a black midi sported white sleeves and side pleat detailing, but the pink layered straight dress looked stylish in its stark design.
Making a strong fashion statement with clothes is what Teresa Laisom and Utsav Pradhan achieved creatively for their label "Munkee.See.Munkee.Doo".

AIMAN AGHA AND ARMAAN RANDHAWA CREATED DELICATE FASHION NUANCES AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2015
The theme of the collection was dark, revolving around an isolated, secret scientific experimental lab in a dense forest inhabited by alligators and hummingbirds.
But what emerged on the ramp was an utterly beautiful feminine take on the inspiration by Aiman Agha and Armaan Randhawa for their label 'Armaan Aiman' at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015.
Using pretty pastel tones of powder pink, coral, mint, metallic green and gold; the pair kept the silhouettes boxy, coat-like with apron inspired ties and pockets that reflected the lab theme.
The beautiful appliqués on mesh/gauze, silk and cotton of swirling alligators and humming birds in flight were strategically placed on the garment to make an ethereal impact.
The dramatic flora and fauna were entwined to give the embellishments on the creations a unique elegant flavour.

Pretty pink appliqués of the alligators and hummingbirds looked great on a long sleeved jacket teamed with gold gathered skirt and coral zippered blouse. The midi front button dress with zippered pockets, the shirt tail double hem tunic worn with rib hemmed pants and the sheer gown with long sleeves over gold pants gave varied versions of the theme.
Comfy back sashed blouse or tunic, ivory pencil skirt with cascading pink appliqués teamed with a gold shirt, knotted hem shaded white/pink maxi and a boxy cross-over trendy dress with lavish work were the eye-catchers of the collection.
The colour option moved to pale sheer green for a long sleeved maxi, short cropped shirt over gold shorts and sheer skirt and the addition of a round hem blouse with gold pants and jacket were a fresh take on the look.
When it comes to beautifully crafted clothes this summer, Aiman Agha and Armaan Randhawa for their label 'Armaan and Aiman' have a great fashion list.

DRVV By Dhruv Kapur, Ikai By Ragini Ahuja And Quirk Box By Rixi Bhatia And Jayesh Sachdev were three Trend Setting Labels that Rocked the ramp at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015

DRVV BY DHRUV KAPUR DRESSED IT DOWN WITH HIS NEW COLLECTION AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT WEAR 2015
Mumbai, 20 March 2015: Retaliating in the most fashion forward way possible, Dhruv Kapur introduced his collection 'Undress Code' for the brand DRVV at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015.
This collection by the designer was built around a basic objective to protest against the restraints that have often kept a woman from being her own person with individuality. Deconstruction of garments created a new fashion statement where the message was loud and clear.
The silhouettes in itself were chic and told a different story with every ensemble that walked out. With straight and structured cut-outs, the "undress" also achieved the deconstruction look. This was by creating garments falling off the body and strategically placed zips, to recreate a 'torn and allowed to show the skin' or lining underneath concept.

A white will-power dress was teamed with a deconstructed jacket, gown with cut-outs and zip detailing on the sides and the black halter dress with a draped back, fitted perfectly into the theme of the show.
Fabrics used to interpret this statement-making collection were smooth cotton poplin, cotton-silk blend with one side poplin and one side satin (to reduce bulk and create styles without lining for the summer), silk satin, silk chiffon, handwoven raw silk from Andhra Pradesh and lightweight wool voile. The colours that complemented the theme were white, cream, black, and soft peach in some accents.
The created textures involved, were basket weave of silk satin strips, created by hand in-house. The elements of the designs that stood out, were the zip detailing at the seams that depicted a ripped-off look impeccably. Refashioned suits and shirt gave the whole range of clothing a new contemporary look.
Dhruv Kapur's collection 'Undress Code' was effortless, classic, avant garde, fashionably on-point and radiated a powerful message to all of womankind.

RAGINI AHUJA WITH THE IKAI LABEL WORKED HER MAGIC AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2015.
Importing her inspiration from overseas, Ragini Ahuja for her 'Ikai' label dazzled with her collection "Tribe" at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015.
Bringing forth her love for different cultures and traditions, ace designer, Ragini was highly influenced by Japanese ethics. Creating an amalgamation of the old and new, the collection was born with a futuristic oriental backdrop.
After her collection "Metal" at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014, she took a bold new step as she ventured into more traditionally based attire.
Silhouettes that flattered the theme of this collection and were the focal point consisted of boxy anti-fits with leather appliqués, Obis and elegantly tasselled accessories. Japanese cranes, cherry blossoms, staple waves against the big red dot and old-world Sashiko patterns were merged together to form ethnic thread and appliqué artworks for the collection. Kimono cut shirts and tunics, pleated pants and skirts and big boxy dresses formed the crux of the collection.

The shades of colours chosen were subtle beige, grey, powdery blue and navy paired with Japanese blood red, which complemented the collection with ambiguous dexterity.
Creations that captivated were the navy blue high waist bikini with white polka dots grouped together with a sheer striped overcoat jacket. The black and white printed bralet and midi box pleated skirt with white stitched detailing had a marked tribal look.
Trendsetting and contemporary, "Tribe" by Ragini Ahuja for her label Ikai should be 'a must' in every diva's closet, which will make them feel confident and international.

QUIRK BOX BY RIXI BHATIA AND JAYESH SACHDEV PITCHED IN ON THE GLOBETROTTING TREND AT LAKME FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2015.
Designers Rixi Bhatia and Jayesh Sachdev from Quirk Box took the audience on the ride of a lifetime with their collection "Wanderlust" at Lakmé Fashion Week Sumer/Resort 2015.
Originally an art print collection, inspired by the postcards of the world, the dynamic duo turned it into a clothing line that had the audience wanting more. They stayed true to the quirkiness and conceptualised something different from the colour blocking and loud hues from the previous season. Galvanized by the world undiscovered, the compilation was based on the adventure of unseen mountains, seas, people and different cultures and unheard music.
The contemporary art with an overlay of romanticism gave allurement to the urban-chic silhouettes that featured statement prints and intricate detailing. The colour story displayed a transition from subtle pastels to brightly popped colours through the course of the show.

A sleeveless lapelled jacket with a cropped top and midi skirt, bell sleeved multicoloured pleated calf length skirt and the printed long flowing cape, top, and shorts trio had a marked summer feel.
Added to the elegant trousseau, were the high-in-function accessories, which contributed to the modern aesthetics, something of grave importance to the urban traveller.
"Wanderlust" by Quirk Box founders Rixi Bhatia and Jayesh Sachdev was free-spirited and left fashion conscious individuals lusting after it.
