Lakme Fashion Week '11 Roundup

This summer no doubt will be awash with weddings and events galore and I need to get all new outfits..So recently I have been looking at Indian Fashion as inspiration.

Taking a look at the Lakme's fashion shows I am sharing designers who have caught my eye, an overview of their collection and also highlighting my favourite pieces.

Amalraj Sengupta

Basically made up from Sport Luxe with casual shapes but heavy fabric, and more tailored shapes suited to evening featuring flirty frills. A couple of my favourite mens and womens from the collection:

Archana Kochhar
With this collection we see Luxe Sportswear being incorporated with the Indian style of dress.


Aneeth Arora
At first it bored me a little but as I went through the images the collection appeared to be getting much better, the designers obvious interest is in layering and textures.. But the reason why I am highlighting her is because of her ability to really merge the Indian textures with Western styling. there are obvious inspirations from London and New York urban street fashion featured in a very   consistent manner throughout.


Anita Ganguly & Anita Walia
Sports Luxe meets Futuristic Warrior in this collection. I am in Love with the print on the skirt and leggings in the larger images..

So ye! those are my favourites!

Aside from this blog I have a Tumblr that takes you through life as an architecture student. I did this because I remember being a potential student and thinking, man if only I could see what's it's like! Architecture isn't something you study or have a familiarity with before your university career. So for this reason I thought it would be useful for other pre-uni students to have a resource where they could see what it's like.
