I am very excited to have Rachana Nakra of as my guest blogger this week. Fresh off the shows she picks her favourites from the recently concluded Lakme Fashion Week.
Rachana has styled fashion cover shoots for Mint Lounge, and her bylines have been featured in The Indian Express, Mint Lounge, Caravan, Mumbai Boss, Vogue and Architectural Digest. Her first foray into the international fashion landscape was in 2012, while completing a Master’s in Fashion Management in London where she learned to love all things vintage.
Rachana now runs Fuffabulous a site that is firmly ensconced in a vision of eco fashion, recommerce and “pre-loved” clothes. It may be well before its time but it’s on my list of blogs to watch out for. Do visit for their stories, their wonderful shoots styled with clothes gifted by interesting women towards interesting causes and for figuring out why the site has that interesting name.
Gaurav Gupta Aliens landed on the ramp this season. With ‘braided’ mohawks and Gupta’s beautiful construction is metallic fabrics, combined with Mawi’s statment jewellery it would be easy to channel your inner goddess. Or alien.
Ken Ferns Bright, summery, easy-to-wear, the designer presented a collection of fun printed separates that are a must for your summer wardrobe this season.
Payal Singhal I loved the combination of cerulean and gold, and the contrast of glamour with the understated.
Nishka Lulla If comfort dressing is the mantra of the season, I cannot wait to lay my hands on this one.
Rajesh.Pratap.Singh Need I say more?
Sailex If there is one young designer who knows how to dress women, it is Sailex. This season he showed some high octane evening dresses and some impeccable tailoring with a touch of androgyny. Yet, all of it utterly feminine.
11.11 CELDSGN Their inspired collection of easy silhouettes in khadi denim, cotton and organza, all in natural indigo is an easy winner.
Sneha Arora Leaking indigo, blotchy prints and dusty browns, the talented designer showed a collection with natural fabrics, smart silhouettes and clever layering.
