Posted by Indian Fashion Police on August 4, 2012
Lakme Fashion Week had a slow start on Day 1 but seems to have picked up with new designers taking centre stage with their new ideas. After the Indian wear getting IFP’s vote yesterday, many western inspired collection did catch my attention on Day 2. IFP picks these designers for their unique collection:

‘Surendri’ by Yogesh Chaudhary
Fun, colorful and chic is how I can describe Yogesh Chaudhary’s collection. The collection had prints in bright colors in this collection ‘Miss Pac-in District’ which consisted of skirts, Tops, trousers, jackets, blouses, trenches, knitted dresses and cardigans, saris and even swim wear. IFP likes this collection as it was trendy and different especially heart the printed jumpsuits. Hope to see more creative work from Yogesh in future.
Pernia Qureshi presented ‘An evening in Paris’ which had drop waist shifts, cigarette pants, pencil skirts, knee length sheaths, beaded sleek dresses, Grecian silhouettes and of course a modern twist to the saree. The collection had rich colors like cobalt, champagne, gold, wine and black in fabrics that ranged from luxe silks, chiffons, net & satin. Pleats, peplum, bead-work on shoulders, sheer fabrics were used to create drama. IFP liked Pernia’s work which would be described as ‘vintage meets modern’.
Priyadarshini Rao’s “Chair-Worthy Collection” is something which I felt like trying out. In collaboration with global haircare brand ‘TRESemme’, Priyadarshini showcased her urban chic collection on Day 2. The show was opened by Avantika Akerkar known for her work in ‘Vagina Monologue’. Vibrant colors like fuchsia, aubergine, green and turquoise were in fabrics like sheer chiffons, cottons, silks, net that were cleverly turned into hand embroidered pinafores, maxis, jackets, skirts & tops. The entire collection was divided into 7 different looks in different colours and style. IFP likes this collection for the fact that it is simple yet chic and playful. One could easily mix-n-match different pieces from these creations. Plus wearability also scroed some browny points from my end.
‘The Jade Tree’ by Neha Sharma
I did like the neck pieces of ‘The Jade Tree’ by Neha Sharma which were elaborate. Neha showcased her collection in the ‘Talent Box’ section at LFW. The range showcased regal, rich pieces most of which were stand alone statement pieces that included an array of necklaces, bejewelled sleek belts, earrings and brooches. Hoping to see more from this designer in future.
