I saw a fleet of awesome sarees on display at the Winter-Festive season of Lakme Fashion Week 2012. I found the couture by designer Bhairavi Jaikishan so flattering to the eyes that couldn't help sharing them with you ladies!
While the burst of fluorescent colors are certainly refreshing-the work with zari and sequins are subtle enough that the outfits are not looking garish or over the top! And the bottomline - tissue and net pallu is going to be a statement for the coming festive season!
I loved the makeup too-nude eyes with bright lips. The hair is made in retro style and there is absolutely no accessorizing. It went Oh So Right with these heavily embellished sarees!
And the showstopper: Amy Jackson
Overall I found this collection to be very elegant yet vibrant! That's a rare combination-so I believe even if one is not wearing exactly these sarees-this show at LFW can provide an example of how a very gorgeous outfit should be paired with the correct makeup and styling!
A word about the Designer: Bhairavi Jaikishan from the Lakme Fashion Week website:
Having been on the Fashion Design scene since 1987, Bhairavi Jaikishan has built up a reputation of being a designer known to give an international look to an Indian ensemble. Her forte is a marriage between Indian silhouettes and contemporary embroideries and treatments. Her collections are based on feelings and emotions and focus on giving the wearer confidence and grace through fluid silhouettes that flatter the female form. Every collection revolves around a large spectrum of colors that evoke happiness and a joy for living.
