Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2011

So many fashion weeks going on all over the place, I can hardly keep up! Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2011 just kicked off. Here's your snapshot of a few shows from Day 1 and 2!

 Archana Kochhar showed a restrained collection with refined, subtle embroidery and flowing silhouettes. It was a definite change from some of her other collections, which dangerously bordered on tacky. I like!

Payal Singhal's collection had some soft pastels - yellows, pale blues and green, light purples with intricate but refined embroidery and zari work. I liked that the collection looked festive without getting overwhelming or tacky.

JJ Valaya's collection featured lots of intricate embroidery with sequins, beads, metallic threads, and stones, as well as rich colors. Deep red, maroons, burgundy, gold, and coppery shades in rich fabrics like velvet, brocade, silk and raw silk dominated. Overall, the collection wasn't anything completely new or exciting, but it was beautiful nevertheless. One of my favorite pieces was the coat worn by the male model in the first set of photos, on the left.

I'll confess - I've never really paid any attention to Nishka Lulla's clothes, but this collection definitely caught my eye and is an instant favorite! I loved how it was distinct and festive at the same time. The collection featured some yummy shades of golden yellow, bright orange, blood red, ivory, with accents in hues of blue, purple, and green. The collection used a lot of chiffon-esque fabrics, along with regular and raw silks. I especially loved all of the bold embellishments and embroidery used on the borders and motifs of the clothes.
