A roundup of Day 1 that had the revolutionary Liva at its core

The first day of LMIFW 2019 was an ode to sustainability. It featured outstanding sartorial creations in Liva, a fabric that flows like magic, drapes you in the most flattering ways, is made of skin-friendly natural fibres and leaves a minimal carbon footprint. The Liva-day had the showcases of four seasoned designers who awed us all with their astuteness at combining style with function, substance and eco-friendliness.

Let’s take in the highlights and start planning our winter wardrobes already.

The collection is high on cheer with a vibrant palette and happy silhouettes comprising tiers, tulip hems and statement sleeves. We love the chic and versatile colour-block wool scarf with the black dress.

When functional quilted jackets come with gorgeous applique and a deep blue trouser-top set is effortlessly layered over a cosy turtleneck, we know we are in for a fabulous winter.

The collection has a balanced mix of both Indian and western ensembles. We quite like the pairing of both, the saree and dress with those cute sneakers.

The gorgeous sarees and angrakha style kurtas of Shalini James’ winter collection exude a silent authority while being soothing and approachable. They’re all investment pieces that are bound to stay in your closet for a really long time without ever losing their appeal.

The fashion world is taking sustainability very, very seriously. And they have given us a myriad ways to go easy on the environment without letting go of aesthetics. One more demonstration of the same was the recent Spring 2019 runways at the Sustainability Day of Lakme India Fashion Week.
