The 5 Best Looks From Lakme Fashion Week 2020


We have got you the ultimate list of the top looks from the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2020

It is that time of the year when along with the bloom of the flowers, there is a slight tension, even pressure to perform well. We are talking about the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2020 that is a dream platform for any designer as it not only dictates trends but also makes star designers out of young artists. Think Masaba, even Aneeth Arora, who all rose to fame after they debuted their collection at Lakme Fashion Week. Years later, the platform is known to be a melting point of design that accommodates both young and accomplished talent. To us, it is the best time of the year, as we get to experience quality fashion along with a touch of art and celebs buzz. We know it can be quite difficult to mull over all the designers at once, so to make it simpler, we have curated the best looks from the Lakme Fashion Week which recently took place in Mumbai, that will keep you on your toes, as far as fashion trends are concerned. Here are some of the best collections that deserve a mention.

Rahul Mishra

The star of the event, Rahul Mishra opened the show with a bang. Apart from having a strong showstopper in the name of Jahnvi Kapoor, who wore a hand-embroidered aqua gown by Rahul Mishra. Speaking about the collection, which was also featured in Paris, Rahul said, "On a recent trip to Soneva Fushi - Maldives, as I submerged myself quite literally, into an unfamiliar world, a series of stark realisations dawned upon me. Mesmerised by the million shades of blue, the ever-changing abstract shapes made up of a diaspora of fish, the alienesque under-water foliage and the striking corals, it was a mammoth task to register the beauty unfolding before me - an experience that was equal parts surreal and humbling. Our collection, ‘Home’ saw an incessant reminder of the beauty that our planet beholds as a key inspiration for many looks that walked the runway," he wrote on Instagram.

Manish Arora

Manish Arora's show was a tribute to the LGBTQ+ family. Aptly titled 'We Are Family', the collection was a burst of colours, glow bulb lightings and theatrical performance. Everything from sequins, tassels, fur, bodysuits, gowns and glitter were on display. What else can you expect from a Manish Arora show... it is an art form in itself, a celebration of colour, the true description of life. Our favourite? This furry gown that would make for a great cosplay outfit or even a cocktail party.

Ritu Kumar

Ritu Kumar is a connoisseur of fashion and design in India. Her collection concluded the day two of the prestigious event whose show was in collaboration with textile developers, Lenzing Ecovero. “We never use synthetic fabrics in our collections, and Ecovero has made a high-quality sustainable viscose for our ecologically-sound line,” she told Vogue India. Think about her signature ethnic coats, maxi dresses and trousers, Ritu Kumar's collection was an ode to the Indian colours and prints.

Vaishali Shandangule

The famed designer who had to once leave her family behind to escape marriage glowed at the Lakme Fashion Week 2020. Her collection Madanottsava was an ode to bridal wear in India and traditional weaves from five states of India. We loved her romantic take on the chanderi saree and the red lehenga that was dominant throughout the show.

Ashdeen Lilaowala

Ashdeen Lilaowala's collection was based on his life in Mumbai as a Parsi. His collection 'Memories on Cloth' was a tribute to his upbringing, family and of course, food! Known to be a Gara saree connoisseur, the beauty of lace was dominant in all his outfits that were showcased at the fashion week. From jhabla blouses to organza sarees and cropped jackets, his collection was a treat to the eyes and was an ode to Parsi culture.
