 After successfully debuting their labels at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019, the Gen Next designers showcased their collections fresh off the runway with the third edition of ‘Gen Next on the Road’ at multi-designer stores in Mumbai, Hyderabad and Delhi.

The three-city tour commenced at FUEL in Mumbai on 29th and 30th August. This was followed by a showcase at ANAHITA in Hyderabad on 5th and 6th September and finally at ENSEMBLE in Delhi on the 17th September 2019. These stores had dedicated sections by the Gen Next batch of LFW WF 19’ – Amaaré by Sahib Bhatia, Anatomy by Gaurav, Little Things Studio by Ankita Srivastava, Zilzom by Stanzin Palmo, Ura Maku by Manjushree Saikia and Noié Noéi by Akanksha Aggarwal.

Sahib Bhatia’s Amaaré’s collection Rule Breaker is inspired by aboriginal Australian art and different architectural forms and the silhouettes are sleek and structured. Fabric texturing techniques like pleating, tucks and embroideries have been used in the collection. Kadali-Patram by Gaurav’s Anatomy is inspired by the sacred evergreen – banana leaf. His collection reflects banana leaves in a way of innovative tailoring, dynamic curves and unexpected drapes. Little Things Studio’s Not So Perfect is for the diverse women. The collection is made of Cupro, a vegan silk, handloom Mashru, Modal silk and Chanderi. Stanzin Palmo’s Zilzom’s collection Between the Earth and Sky pays homage to flora, fauna and nature of Ladakh. The inspiration for the silhouettes comes from Goncha, the traditional Ladakhi dress. Her collection is made with a blend of Pashmina, silk, rayon and brocade. Ura Maku’s Dawn to Reality explores timeless silhouettes and impression of handmade textiles by honouring efforts made by the artisans. Noié Noéi’s collection comprises young silhouettes with bold shoulders & dreamy hem lines. The garments reflect a moderate femininity with its own unique identity.

The Gen Next programme has continued to give the industry some of the biggest names in fashion like Rahul Mishra, Masaba Gupta, Aneeth Arora and many more. Every season, the Gen Next designer selection is done by the LFW Advisory Board after which each handpicked Gen Next designer goes through a 2-month training programme with the LFW Gen Next designer programme mentor, Sabina Chopra.

Jaspreet Chandok, Vice President and Head of Fashion, IMG Reliance said, “Gen Next on the road is a program developed to help young designers understand the demand for their designs in diverse markets, and get a first-hand experience of understanding the commercial side of the business, thereby prepping them for the future. We thank the multi designer stores for partnering with us in the initiative.” Lakmé Fashion Week launched the third edition of ‘Gen Next on the Road”
