Honest opinion about the Indian Fashion Scenario

Day 2 at Lakme Fashion Week S/R 2013

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on March 23, 2013

‘Mixed Emotions’ is how I can describe Day 1 of  LFW. With Gen Next designers making quite an impression with their new designs and the veteran designers adding the glam factor to the show………one got to see various creations from different eras. IFP takes you through the best collection on Day 2 of LFW.

Naeem Khan


After seeing Naeem’s collection at New York Fashion Week last month, seeing his outfits on the Indian runway were equally fascinating. The designer finally got his much deserved due in his home country. The collection had gowns, dresses & kaftans in beautiful bright colours. His signature style of combining drapes with sequin detailing was the highlight of this collection.

No one does glamorous gowns like Naeem Khan……..the amount of bling is just right, the fit is amazing and the entire look of an outfit is so feminine. I had wished that Indian media and fashion fraternity acknowledge Naeem’s work in my previous article nearly two years ago. I am delighted to see his efforts being recognised here. I am sure his designs will make waves on the Indian red carpet just the way they have conquered the international scene. All IFP can say to this designer is Welcome Home Naeem!!!

Nikhil Thampi


Designer Nikhil Thampi’s collection ‘Cruise 2013’ made the shades of yellow a ‘must-have’ for this summer season. The collection which had designs for both men & women was done up in fabrics like crêpe, net, cotton and lycra. Jumpsuits, shorts, sheath dresses, flowy gown, jackets and tunics were a part of this collection.

Overall colour was the part for which I adored this collection.add to it some metallic touches in form of belts & voila you have something new on the Indian runway. The fabrics were suitable for the hot summer season yet the sharp designs caught my eye. I did like Nikhil’s work with sheer fabric and think we might get to see these designs off the runway too.

Shehla Khan


Shehla Khan’s collection titled ‘Boudoir’ was inspired by French architecture………the designer who has taken her family business of creating lace to the next  level by establishing her own label ‘Shehlaa’. The collection had dreamy dresses and gowns in pastels with crystal details. Love the short lace dresses which very sexy and elegant at the same time while the gowns were fabulous too. But I am on edge about the two piece outfits with short skirt underneath. Shehla has created fabulous looks with lace and I hope she continues to showcase new ways of incorporating this alluring fabric in her designs. IFP liked this collection.
