So, peeps Lakme Fashion Week 2018 has just started, and we CANNOT keep calm! Its first day was exquisitely concluded with the ever amazing collection titled Songs of Summer by Anita Dongre. It was primarily a wedding collection imbued with love and beauty! And if you are also looking for beautiful offbeat-hued lehengas for 2018’s Summer Weddings, you have stumbled upon the right spot.
With a blend of subtle pastels, exquisite light colours and floral designs, Dongre’s collection was resplendent with luxuriant handcrafts and printed stories of love oozing perfection for a summer wedding. What we loved the most about her collection was how she kept the theme of sustainability intact throughout her artistic creations. Also, the collection imparted oodles of comfort with breathable handwoven light-hued fabrics making it a lot more desirable for any Indian bride looking for a perfect ensemble for her summer wedding.
Dongre’s collection expressed personality-driven styles accentuating comfort and fashion blended with artistic perfection.“The silhouettes and fabrics were elegant and comfortable. Instead of restrictive clothing, free-flowing garments took centre stage in the form of billowy pleated midi skirts, wrap tops and loose palazzo pants. Summer is the time to wear easy breezy silhouettes, and the 50s presented the perfect inspiration to create garments that won’t bog you down,” said the fashion auteur.
