Day 5 of Lakme Fashion Week was definitely a star-studded event. It started with Vikram Phadnis, who showcased his collection of lengha cholis, sarees and anarkalis.
Although not quite out of the ordinary when taken individually, the pieces were a real treat to the eyes when shown as a collection. It had a striking color palette that was deep and bright. Walking the ramp for Vikram Phandis were Bollywood’s hottest sweethearts, Bipasa Basu and Dia Mirza, all dolled up in Desi style.
The items shown on the runway were also practical, which I liked. I guess many Indian designers have begun to realize that in order to survive in this industry, they need to make clothes that appeal and sell to the masses.
