Like the other days of Lakme Fashion Week 2012, day 4 too saw quite a sizeable turnout of Bollywood celebs, which included A-listers such as Kajol apart from other known faces. Showcasing on day 4 of Lakme Fashion Week were designers such as Payal Singhal, Siddartha Tytler and Swapnil Shinde apart from young names such as Nupur Kanoi and Ruchika Sachdeva.
Trend which was seen across collections
Much like the other three of the event, day of LFW 2012 too saw a combination of neutral shades such as whites and grays with vibrant hues such as yellows, greens and oranges. Tranquil blue, inspired from ocean life, was also seen across collections, that by Nupur Kanoi being the best of all.
The unusual factor by Ruchika Sachdeva
Ruchika Sachdeva was one of the four young designers showcasing her collection at Day 4 of the event. While she drew inspiration from marine life, her collection consisted of a mix jackets, dresses, tops as well as jumpsuits. What caught our eye were the drop crotch pants which were definitely unusual as well as chic.
There as bridal collection too
One of the highlights of day 4 of Lakme Fashion Week 2012 was Payal Singhal’s show. Payal showcased bridal wear, which was a blend of resort style clothing and Indian bridal wear. There were lehengas, saris as well as salwar-suits on display. And they were designed in a whole color palette, ranging from green to purple, navy blue, pink et al.
Patchwork ruled too
On day 4 of the event, patchwork and appliqué was also seen in generous doses. Young designer duo of Shashank and Prajwal used it in their collection, which had an interesting 3D feel to it. Patchwork and cutwork was used against the backdrop of white and black, which combined with angled silhouettes, created an interesting style statement.
Patchwork was used by Siddhartha Tytler too, who did the finale on day 4. Siddhartha’s collection was about his signature style, use of colors and appliqué. The highlight of his collection was the printed lace which was noticed by all.
Eclectic and individualism by Rimi Nayak
While there were far too many good collections to name any one stand out of the day, it was Rimi Nayak’s collections which drew the most stares. Her collection was inspired from insects. The clothes had insect motifs and digital prints on bugs which almost brought them to life. There was interesting use of silhouettes too, with a mix of layering and structure.
What else was there?
Apart from all that, there was the Karmic Show on day 4 of Lakme Fashion Week 2012. The show had celebrity designers such as Rina Dhaka, Falguni and Shane Peacock, Ranna Gill, Neeta Lulla and several others walk the ramp in their own collections.
The show was a part of the effort by designers to make designer clothing accessible and affordable for a large population.
