    Jayanti Reddy’s collection “The Twilight Zone” at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2018, showcased high creativity and fashion statements.

    The colour palette was inspired by the ‘Golden hour’ that has a variety of shades in grey, which are often seen residing between night and day.

    Scalloped edges formed a prominent theme, while the checks’ embellishment created a perfect look. The sheer gave the outfits a fluid feel and the tassels added to the femininity along with bold laces and borders, creating a perfect blend of intricate and bold embroidery

    When it came to showcasing the contradictions of the twilight hour in the collection, Jayanti ensured that the silhouettes captured the beauty of reverie and reality in their intersections.

    For a show-stopping entry, the gorgeous Bollywood actor, Aditi Rao Hydari in a heavily embellished rose gold lehenga and exquisitely embroidered backless jacket that made all heads turn.

    The collection definitely gave the audience strong festive vibes,making it a must have in every woman’s wardrobe.

    Nupur Kanoi’s “Protea” collection was a great balance of elegance, aesthetics, comfort and practicality. The collection was very bohemian and chic. Deriving its inspiration from the unusual bloom of Cape Town, and its picturesque beauty, the designer used clothes as her canvas to showcase a striking line of ensembles.

    The designer experimented with fabrics like velvet and metallic, to give the silhouettes an edgy and appealing look.

    The embellishments were vibrant and intricate. Glass beadwork was interestingly used to create optical illusion-like embroideries. Giving the garments a modern twist and yet retaining their originality.

    The main highlight was on the striped and checked Bandhani that was inspired by the endless wine plantations that Cape Town is renowned for. The cobalt blue Mochiwork kimono jacket and blouse, with nautical Bandhani flared pants were one of the key highlights of the collection. The Designer ensured her line was functionally fashionable with a 70’s vibe.

    Nupur made sure to showcase the perfect combination of style, elegance, energy, enthusiasm and glamour in her “Protea” collection.
