Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 will kick off on August 20, 2014. And it’s going to be bigger, better and yes, glossier. With a brand new venue, Hotel Palladium in Mumbai, LFW Winter/Festive 2014 promises a lot more besides the Haute Couture.
Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014 was a fabulous affair. It offered everything from Dhruv Kapur’s monochromatic ensemble collection to Digvijay Singh’s quirky collection inspired from Snakes and Ladders. The event proved to be an ultimate feast for the fashion pundits. We still remember the sheer gorgeous collection by Karan Berry and Leon Baz. Carol Gracias in a rich white gown with intricate lace detailing defines pure heaven. Good clothes definitely come in subtle shades.
In case, you missed the hot line-up last season, fret not. LFW Winter/Festive 2014 promises to bring in a new ray of hope to the fashion world.
