The “New Beginnings” line was all about celebrating the joie de vivre with a clean white slate as an inspiration. Aimed at the woman who celebrates life and self-love, the ensembles were feminine, flouncy and at times delicately flirty. Lustrous silk and satin played a perfect melodious fabric symphony, while myriad colours danced on the surfaces.
· Embroidery was the star focal point, but in a delicate but radiant format
· Frills and ruffles to highlight the utterly feminine line Colours, floral, prints and appliqués
The deep red lehenga encrusted with 3D appliqués with the seductively, ruffled off shoulder choli. Cropped biker’s embroidery jacket with a lehenga and another long-sleeved cropped zippered creation were eye-catchers. Boleros over bustiers, some with cut-out long-sleeves and an embellished waistcoat inspired choli, brought a fun element to the collection, while the will-powered gown made a grand entry. Saris were edged with fluttering 3D flowers and looked amazing in their multi coloured hues.

“New Beginnings is our Festive Occasion-wear collection. It celebrates freedom, a break away from traditional attire but befitting special ceremonial/celebratory occasions. Dresses, Saris and Skirt-sets have a holiday/sporty styling to add some color and emotion to the otherwise monotony of Life. We are excited about the new collection and its showcase. The virtual/ film format, while challenging, has opened new avenues to explore storytelling- in terms of choosing locales and playing with cinematography, music, etc. We are loving it! It’s a beautiful approach to reaching out to a much wider audience than was possible through the traditional runway format and hopefully the spectators find it visually delightful and engaging. Fashion Weeks have evolved over the years – in terms of both quality and Content. This podium offers such a diverse display of products and the best of indigenous produce in apparel truly celebrating Make in India and Made in India. FDCI &Lakmé Fashion Week continuing their partnership in showcasing Pan India participation biannually, despite all odds that the pandemic has wreaked, lends a purpose and we hope the effort translates into wider consumption and business for all the stakeholders”-
