We are looking forward to the upcoming and the most celebrated fashion event – Lakmé Fashion Week Winter / Festive 2011. The dates to this much-awaited event are out! It will be held from August 17th to August 21st, 2011 at Grand Hyatt, Mumbai. Usually the event is scheduled a little later, but this time it has been scheduled earlier so that the designers can showcase their latest collections for the upcoming wedding and festive season and have enough time to ship the merchandize to their international clients.
Lakmé Fashion Week has always selected the best talent and promoted innovations in the world of fashion. The fashion week will not only showcase the most talented designers in Prêt and Couture on one platform but will also bring new talent to the forefront. The season would focus on winter/ festive collections and will see a lineup of a record number of designers for the first time – 87 designers will be participating in this fashion week!
The event will be opened by none other than Rohit Bal with a grand start at Tote. While a number of designers will showcase their collections during the week, the closing would be by the iconic designer Manish Malhotra who will be presenting his collection at the grand finale. He will be interpreting the new cosmetic range ‘Lakmé Absolute’ by Lakmé.
We will be following and tracking all the news on this fashion week. Some of the designers we would watch out for bridal and resort wear are – Anita Dongre, Manish Malhotra, Neeta Lulla, Shyamal & Bhumika, Sabyasachi, J.J Valaya, Pria Kataria Puri, Wendell Rodricks, Rohit Bal and Swapnil Shinde.
We are also interested in what some of the gen-next designers will showcase! Watch this space for more coming up on Lakme Fashion Week Winter/ Festive 2011….
