The year 2009 is coming to an end, the year that gave us its very first Men's Fashion week and ofcourse the Couture Week. So what better time than this to revisit the year and see what it has given us in terms of fashion, besides the so many fashion weeks.
I had been going through the fashion weeks very religiously, keeping myself updated with all new, old and not so old designers. But, never did I think of writing about them, for some strange reason. Maybe I was finding it difficult catching up with the multiple fashion weeks. But now, I guess I can relook at them in totality, and not one at a time, and finally write about my favourite designers and my favourite designs.
Lakme Fashion Week has been the forerunner of all fashion weeks in India. And this year, it also celebrated its 10th Anniversary, with the old batch of designers showing their best. Other than that, there were ofcourse the other designers showcasing their talent. I have gone through each one of them, intepreting their work as per my aesthetics and sensibilities.
Aneeth Arora: I completely love her silhouettes and the interesting use of scarves. She is one designer who has a very clear direction, a clear and an equally strong direction. The use of natural fabrics is exactly what makes her designs so glamorous. I love her sensibilities that come through so clear in the entire collection.
