Hey everyone!!! Another season of Lakme Fashion Week just ended at Jio Garden in Mumbai! This was my 5th consecutive season of attending it and believe me, every year, it only tends to grow on me. I love the vibe, the passion, the creativity all around… and what I love the most about it, is that it gives you the chance to be surrounded by people who love and live by fashion… who won’t judge you for how vain, experimental or freaky you are, because for all you know – they’re one step ahead of you in those fronts!
I only attended the first 4 days this time, because by the 5th day I was too tired and quite unwell, owing to the very unlikely Mumbai Winter.
So, here’s an account of my streetstyle looks that I wore to Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2019.
Overall, this time I chose to keep my outfits and looks more classy and a little less experimental than what I generally end up doing for LFW.
This outfit is a dress (actually a kurta top which I wore as a dress) from Fahd Khatri. I love the comfortable fabric and the drape-like silhouette. Wore it with my favorite black sling bag from Tory Burch and a sturdy pair of black boots from Shein.in.
This one, my absolute favorite, is from my own collection ‘House of PinkPepperCorn’ which I’m going to be launching very soon 😉
I loooove linens and this co-ord set of pants and a long trench in striped linens is one of the first pieces I created for my line which has a lot more interesting stuff in-store for you guys! So keep watching 😉
Wore it with a gray bodysuit, a large coin necklace that I bought at a handicraft exhibition in Mumbai, and a pair of white sneakers from Shein.in.
You’ll notice that all my shoes during the 4 days are comfortable and flat – and that’s because the fashion week, no matter in which venue, demands a lot of walking around. And I’m definitely not one of those super-women who can rock in heels for hours. 😉
This is one look which is extremely close to my heart, because I actually DIY’d it, myself… just an hour before the event! This was an old Billabong jumpsuit – completely plain. It was actually Mr. Wolf’s idea to DIY it and amp it up. So, a few days prior, I went to cheap jack (a crafts store in Bandra) and bought these lovely bee-patches. Only thing is, I couldn’t find the time to do it, until the very last moment!!
I’ve used fabric glue to paste the bee patches and I’ve also stitched a few charms here and there to add that kitsch quirk to it.
The previous day, I attended the show by Pero – one of my favorite sustainable fashion brands… and as a memorabilia, they gave us a basket with a lapel pin and some heart shaped brooches. That lapel pin and their little hearts also found a place on my jumpsuit this day 😉
And then I added an extra lil touch with this beautiful Spanish silk scarf that I got as a gift and wore it with olive green leather boots to match.
For my makeup, I used an orange eyeliner (for which I got some excellent response) from Lotus Herbals Make-up. It is called the Ecostay butter matte paint pot in the shade Orange pinch and it’s gooorrrgeous!
This was my last day of attending the show this season… and I chose to wear this gorgeous jacket, ethically made from up-cycled materials created out of factory waste, by sustainable fashion brand Iro Iro.
Iro Iro has a zero-waste policy and were one of the final 8 shortlisted entries that showcased at the Circular design challenge at the Lakme Fashion Week.
This jacket, I paired with another one of my own creations, these linen cowl pants from soon-to-be-launched House of Pinkpeppercorn. (Which I’m super-excited about, OMG :D)
For my makeup again, I’ve used the Lotus Herbals Make-up ecostay paint pot in the shade insane blue and added a pair of shoulder duster earrings from Paarisha by Chinanshu.
Hope you liked reading this and do tell me which one your favorite look was 😀
