Models sashayed on the ramp to the melodious voice of Shibani Kashyap at the showcase of designer Anushree Reddy’s collection titled ‘Tale of Bow’ at  Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014. The show was a classic yet contemporary take on Indian fashion and made use of fun and versatile shades like stone grey, vintage pink, soft blush, teal blue, rustic brown, canary yellow along with natural beige.

To add an ethereal charm of old-meets-new, the designer worked with rich fabrics such as malkha, Chanderi, kota, tulle, mulmul and satin on lightly structured silhouettes. Keeping in tune with the theme, the designer incorporated Indo-western pieces like cropped blouses, lehengas, Anarkalis, dresses, gowns, pants and cover-ups sported large innovatively placed bows .The embellishments comprised zardosi work, pearl tassels, bling sequins, tube sequins and beads. Ending the show was show stopper Ileana D’Cruz who stunned all in a ravishing cream lehenga and peach toned blouse with sequins and embroidery.

Gaurang Shah’s ‘Chandbali’ collection was a rainbow of colours and styles in an ode to the modern bride at the Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014. Combining the patterns of the antique odhnas from the Akbarnama with khadi, motifs like gow-mata, chand-suraj, Buddha-pada were combined with Chandbali like embroidery were the cynosure of all eyes at the show.

The collection was designed in hues of surkh red, gulabi pink, zard yellow, narangi orange, sabz green ensuring the 21st century bride had ample options. Bringing to centre stage, the ancient Jamdani weaving technique, Gaurang’s “Chandbali” was poetry in fabric form as he presented the odhna weaves on organza while the embroidery on khadi recreated the antique zardosi style. The show stopper for his show was  Kirron Kher in a shocking pink brocade sari.
