The Bride’s Guide To Lakme Fashion Week S/R ’16 : Day 4

Not the most exciting day for our Brides, this day, but a day packed with exciting collections nevertheless.
6Conspicuous by absence from this bridal guide is Saroj Jalan‘s collection, one which was clearly meant for brides. And although the ghatcholas were beautiful, to me the collection felt dated and just did not get me excited. On the other hand, Day 4 had resort favourites Masaba Gupta and Shivan & Narresh showcasing their super super super fun collections. Interestingly enough, both were inspired by art for their respective lines, but that’s where the similarity ends. While Shivan & Narresh sent several neoprene beauties down the runway in sleek cutout styles, Masaba adopted Chillies and Flowers as her print babies this season. Can’t wait to get my hands on a Masaba dress, and a Shivan & Narresh swimsuit worthy bod. One day, not so far away.

With that out of the way, let’s get down to business.
4Sleek Indian silhouettes with experimental negative space was what this collection was about. This collection belongs on a surfer babe, so don’t really see it being very versatile, but there are of course, many women out there who’d love to be seen in these lightweight looks.
Ideal for: the sister of the bride
2Making her debut at Lakme Fashion Week this season, Shriya put forth a gorgeous feminine collection which was equal parts feminine and glam. Sure, I didn’t see the bling coming, until that cape-sleeved gown came down the runway; it really tied the collection together.
Ideal for: that Great Gatsby themed cocktail where you’d rather not look like a flapper girl
So far from my aesthetic but still my top collection of the day. Payal Khandwala is every boho-chic woman’s dream designer. And she proved that colour blocking is back in vogue, not that it really went anywhere from our Indian wardrobes, but still. I also absolutely adored the jewellery that she styled the collection with. You can’t see much of it except in my top picks, apart from that large nosering, but its just the kind of cool you aspire to be when you wake up in the morning.
Ideal for: the hipster’s trousseau
3 It might be confusing to some of you to see this luxe resort collection in my bridal guide but hear me out. I loooooove Monisha Jaising and may be slightly biased, but you’ve got to admit that this woman can really play around with fabrics. I mean, LOOK at that denim crop top + skirt/lehenga. So I think it’s worth considering for any bride who wants to add some fun, sexy pieces to her trousseau. Also, this collection has a really global appeal so wearability wouldn’t be an issue.
Ideal for : your International friends who fumble around in their sarees on the beach

This was probably my most “controversial” compilation yet, if you can call it that. What d’ya think?

Love you too ♥
