Honest opinion about the Indian Fashion Scenario

Lakme Fashion Week Resort 2012 – Day 2

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on March 4, 2012

I always wonder, what makes a designer’s imagination run wild when they are thinking of new creations…………something that stands out of the rest. Hard for me to tell since I am just an audience or better a critic in this case who gives opinion via this space. But these are the ideas which set the trends sometimes rest others just fade away. So let’s just take a look at the alluring designs of Day 2 which IFP thinks will make a lasting impression.

Bhairavi Jaikishan

Whenever I see a beautiful ‘Chantilly’ lace saree, the name Bhairavi Jaikishan does cross my mind. So I was thrilled to see the grand bridal lehengas and sarees by Bhairavi which were showcased at LFW for the very first time. The collection named as ‘The Sensous Woman’ fit the bill for summer weddings. The colour pallete moved from dull golds, pastels, to vibrant blues, pinks, turquoise, vermillions in tulles, nets and lame fabric. Color blocking was one of the prominent features of this collection and exquisite detail work always makes Bhairavi’s collection stand out. Model & actress Amy Jackson looked charming as she walked the runway in Bhairavi’s creation.  IFP loves this amazingly elegant collection for the bride who is a believer in heirloom.

Pia Pauro

Pia Pauro was the surprise of Day 2, with her vibrant collection I adore her ‘oh-so-fabulous’ collection. Inspired by tribal art & Arabian countries, the collection ‘Shamal’  had loads of prints, color and bling to it. Sundresses, comfy tunics, flowing kaftans, elegant saris, slinky evening wear along with resort wear like swimsuits, beach bags and handmade accessories. It was young and chic. Actress Tara Sharma donned a metallic detail work dress as a show-stopper for Pia. IFP Loves the youthful prints and the neon color which are sure to lift your mood this summer season.

Bibhu Mohapatra

For the very first time, designer Bibhu showcased his creations at Lakme Fashion Week…….he is a well-known Indian designer based in New York who has showcased his work at the prestigious New York Fashion Week. Bibhu knew how to impress the audience way back home with his recent collection which had more emphasis on the cut. I am in awe of the laser cut pattern and the knee-length dresses which spelt ‘seductive’ all over. Though I felt the gowns looked better on the international runway, the short dresses got my vote for the day. IFP loved Bibhu’s work for it’s simplicity, subtle detailwork and sophisticated look. If you are looking for a cocktail outfit which oozes loads of oomph, Bibhu’s creation might be the answer to your prayer.

    Amy Jackson as a showstopper so soon in her career, it’s pretty lucky for her isn’t it? Loving all the colourful sarees and that scalloped mini dress on Tara Sharma.
