Mumbai: Blending in the art of ‘sculpting' and ‘de-sculpting' with structured drapes, designer Anamika Khanna brought the curtains down on the Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015 here.
It was a perfect display of fashion and glamour when Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor walked the ramp in one of Khanna's bespoke creations from her collection, inspired by ‘Sculpt', the Lakmé beauty statement for the season, on Sunday night.
The designer played with colours like silver, gold, ivory, gunmetal, black, soft pink, nude and a strong blue to culminate the bi-annual event, which started on March 18. The fashion gala marked the completion of 15 years of LFW.
Anamika's interpretation of 'Sculpt' displayed craftsmanship and construction at its best, using Indian crafts in its structural forms.
The designer explored embroidery like zardosi, thread and metallic work to reinvent it to match the inspirations for her strong, but quiet creations.
“It has been an absolute honour to be part of this grand 15 year celebration. Lakmé's 'Sculpt' statement was a very inspiring theme to work with for my grand finale collection.
"It is an eclectic mix of construction and deconstruction and I have played a lot with drapes, Indian dhotis and long flowy jackets - all silhouettes that truly capture my vision of 'Sculpt',” said Khanna.
Whether it was the silhouettes, colours, embroidery or fabrics, the 'Sculpt' collection by Anamika was an intense fashion experience that left a lasting, mesmerising impression on the audience with the ultra-glamorous beauty of the ensembles.
Each look on the runway was completed with Lakmé's new range of Absolute Sculpt Matte lipsticks.
