Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2016 is reigning the ramp with its diversity, and after the introduction by Tarun Tahiliani and first day finale by Manish Malhotra, we were more than enthusiastic to see what the talented designers, new and veterans alike, have to offer on the second day, and boy, are we disappointed? Nope. Presenting to you, the varied genres of subtlety that the day two of this winter festive season of Lakme Fashion Week 2016 has to offer.

Day two of Lakme Fashion Week was dedicated to ‘Sustainable Fashion and Indian Textiles’.
The day opened to the collection that was dedicated to the weaves of Assam, titled aptly ‘Halodhi’. Aditi Holani Chandok’s design Aagor by Ants Craft floored us, while another ingenious debut by Pranami Kalita’s Pariah was all about blending finest of silks with the raw passion of handlooms from other parts of the country. Anuradha Ped’s collection had us reeling in the rich aura of colours, thrown in various hues of sarees and dupattas.
There was yet another talented debut on the runway of fashion week, and that was Runaway Bicycle by designer Preeti Verma. Her perfect culmination of vintage with modern brought the classiest of designs, with subtle hues reflecting her style.
While Bina Rao’s collection was all about flowers and their gorgeousness, Weaver’s Studio had it sober with subtle themes and muted shades, for that crisp and prim effect, giving rich and luxury feel using tussar silk and organza fabric. We absolutely loved this classic.
Anavila’s ‘The Sari in Us’ brought the out the purity and beauty using hand-woven linen in the collection displayed, and we loved it.
After this, was Sanjay Garg’s collection sponsored by Monaco Tourism, which was edgy in fashion, and though not totally in sync with our tastes, but passable.
We surely were trumped by these looks. What do you say?
