Sabyasachi Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2016

Before we draw the curtain on this year, lets have a look at Sabyasachi's winter festive collection !

This intricately crafted collection was an amalgamation of fur and exquisite handwork with metallic fringes and what not. The pieces were not only limited to sarees, there were beautiful shift dresses, kaftans and velvet ensembles. The menswear collection truly announced the presence of florals yet again. 
Combined with the music by Symphony Orchestra Of India, the ramp was an ode to the creativity of Indian traditions.

Is there any wedding that can happen without the bride asking for a sabya outfit or a sabya style outfit ? Well, in our experience, NO !!

Runway To Reality : How to get the Runway trends in a Budget

Before the dawn of 2016, lets give you the insider tips on how to spruce up the runway. 

Its time to make a run to your favourite fabric store and get your hands on your favorite kind of silks and brocades. 

#insider trend 1: Dupatta that speaks for itself
Invest in a dupatta and go with a monochrome ensemble to compliment that. 

Inspired by the diva herself: Sonam Kapoor in Gaurang 

#insider trend 2: No fuss power 
Choose any fabric in a vibrant colour, get them made into a pair of cropped trousers or wide leg pants. 
Add on a shirt or a jacket and that's pretty much it. 
# insider trend 3: We all have a black shirt in our wardrobes. Rather than teaming them with plain old denims, you can always add that 'oomph' and pair them with a grey-gold brocade skirt.
Take a cue of inspiration from this Raw mango look. 

#insider trend 4: Love for a Jacket

A silk dress and a fuchsia jacket is just what this winter needs. This look is gonna keep you warm and cozy, yet on your heels !

We love fabrics ! The unlimited amount of styles that one can create with them is absolutely amazing.

Wear the Runway : Handwoven Lehengas

With all the designers going gaga over these bewitching handloom lehengas, have you landed one of these beauties in you closet yet ?

This should come as no surprise that this season is all about the simplicity of fabric. 
This is going to be a long journal, but for the very first edition, here are our favorite runway and celeb looks of this festive season. 

Look 1: White and Gold

Our time honored tradition of the classic white and gold is number 1 on our list. 
With a sheer dupatta, the drama is all there. 
If you have a fervor of pearls, load them up in layers on a plain brocade or silk top and wrap the dupatta around you. 
All ready to go 

Look 2: Monochrome and Gold

For those who have a panachè for colors, go for a monochrome look in a warm color palette and a touch of dull gold weave.


Look 3: Soha or Sonam ? 
Roseate Fuchsia
We love em both <3

If you love a bright color, then you must have a roseate toned hand woven lehenga. Add a gold top and vintage rubies with a organza or a french chiffon dupatta !
Definite winner

Look 4: Off the Runway

Whatever colors you fancy, be it a lovely charcoal grey with gold or a popping red, wear the look with a low and tight chignon bun and wrap your dupatta like a shawl and off you go. 
Super simple and effortless.

Look 5: Drama Queen 

We absolutely love a drama queen !
Nothing says couture more like a heritage lehenga. Invest in a multi color hand woven lehenga and a semi-sheer dupatta with oodles of pearls and rubies. 
You can style it up with a short blouse/top or a gold shirt or a jacket, and can never go wrong. 
This one is gonna stay with you forever. 

If you don't want to go over budget and still want to pull these looks off, stay with us ! 
We are gonna cover that in our next post.
