Lakme Fashion Week 2018 Winter/Festive edition began on an edgy note with creative collections from various designers.The 5-day-long fashion extravaganza will showcase works by designers such as Kunal Rawal, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Amit Aggarwal, Ritu Kumar and a finale by Monisha Jaisingh on Sunday.

If you’re looking for some fashion advice, here’s some help. These are some bold style lessons for you from day 1 and day 2.

Sarees can be power statement

Sarees have been enjoying a spot in the limelight for the past few years with various initiatives such as #100sareepact, more focus on handloom weaves and sustainable indie brands working towards making it a more functional outfit.

Take a cue from Sushmita Sen, who turned a Kanjeevaram saree into a complete power statement as she walked the ramp for designer Sunita Shankar in collaboration with RmKV Silks.

Dramatic makeup is here to stay

Exaggerated, thick eyebrows, over-the-top smoky eyes and bold lips are just some of the makeup trends we saw on the ramp at Lakme Fashion Week.

Layering is the next big thing

Every season, the fashion brigade sets some trends that are then followed by the masses. Similarly, 2018 belongs to layering. From the biggest designers to smaller labels, everyone is offering outfits that can layered. Print on print, asymmetrical silhouettes, casual to formal, there’s something for everyone.

Fashion with a heart

Sustainable fashion has been a popular theme across the past few seasons of Lakme Fashion Week. But this year, it has gone from a token trend to a more practical and doable theme. Labels such as Eka with its ‘lived in’ collection demonstrated that fashion can be an agent of change. Rajesh Pratap Singh’s collection was made using international sustainable fibre brand Tencel.

Gender fluid fashions

For years, fashion has been dominated by gendered perspectives. This year’s edition of Lakme Fashion Week, however, has been breaking quite a few stereotypes. The collection by Chola was all about gender fluid fashion through its layering, use of frills and monochrome colours. To add to this conversation, Narthaki Nataraj from Tamil Nadu, a renowned transgender Bharatanatyam dancer, put on a stellar performance for the RmKV Silks show.
