Designers at Day 1 of Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014, the mega-fashion event started off with a bang on Tuesday with Amit Aggarwal and Masaba Gupta. Amit Aggarwal, whose futuristic ensembles won praise, showcased a collection that continued from where he left off.
Amit Aggarwal's collection was unusual and fresh. The soul of Aggarwal’s collection lay in incorporating tribal influences like weaving techniques, stripped tattoos and structured jewelry, while a modern interpretation of these ideas was taken forward as menswear details found their way on to coture dresses in a beautiful synthesis of androgyny with feminity. But the biggest surprise was to see Sushmita Sen in a sheer black gown. Sushmita turned the show stopper for Amit Aggarwal as Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 rolled off Tuesday. The black gown was worn with a nude coloured body suit underneath it. The stripped sequin details on the gown are exquisite.
The most striking feature about the showstopper's outfit was the puffed flare details at the waist. The material used was tulle and mesh. Sushmita Sen's LFW 2014 look was completed with soft brown curls and Gothic makeup. She went for smokey silver eyeshadow and dark coloured lips. Sush looked amazing in this black silhouette. Lakme Fashion Week 2014 started off with a big bang. When Sushmita Sen walked down the ramp with designer Amit Aggarwal it was really a stunning sight. The showstopper's outfit was a fitting culmination to the stylish and edgy collection.
Designer Masaba Gupta Tuesday showcased her fashion line at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/ Festive 2014 and her showstopper Shilpa Shetty grooved with the models on the ramp. Donning a slinky black printed cut-out gown with an attached dupatta drape – Shilpa Shetty looked a million bucks as she strode confidently down the runway.
Masaba Gupta’s collection was called as ‘Wanderess’ which absolutely went well with the theme. Her collections that were a blend of flared minis in beige, slinky gowns with multi prints, long sleeved, thigh length jacket with flared pants and cut-out sari gown, created a mood of the fun times of the 1960s. Trapeze printed top with bell sleeves, attached dupattas for skirts, bell bottom style shararas, long sleeved tail-coat cholis with printed saris and drop waist will-power maxi added to the options that Masaba offered through the show.
