Latest News

This season designers showing at the Lakme Fashion Week are going all out to imbibe quirky influences in their line. Puneet Nanda of Satya Paul says his line has sought inspiration from a deck of tarot cards. So, the bridal line will blend mystical elements inspired by the symbolism of the Empress, Lovers, Wands.

Designer Debarun Mukherjee is looking towards nature for inspiration and his new line borders a mystical flower that sages and tyrants have been searching for but in vain.

Digvijay Singh for Bhu:sattva’s line is titled Tidak Ada Lagi, which literally means ‘not many left’, referring to the largest flower in the world and it is aimed to tell every woman to reach out to their core and go back to their roots —albeit fashionable roots.

Swapnil Shinde has chosen to marry 17th century European fashion with our very own Lavani dancers’ sense of style in his new line Dancer in the Dark.

He says, “I was watching two movies simultaneously — V Shantaram’s Pinjara and Moulin Rouge and I immediately started to imagine the head courtesan in Moulin Rouge as an Indian dancer,”  

Vizyon is trying to revive the fashionable era that has gone by in its new line Enchanting Nymphs. Shradha Murarka explains, “The collection will have a goddess-like look inspired by flowing and curvilinear shapes with an organza spread into petal shaped dresses and bloomed evening gowns moulded on a whirl of subtle tulle.”

Bollywood’s favourite designer Neeta Lulla is seeking inspiration from a territory she is more than familiar with — Bollywood! Having designed for epic movies in Indian cinema, it would be interesting to watch what the lady puts on the ramp this time around.
