Lakmé Fashion Week Day 1: Celebrity showstoppers and their stunning outfits

As the world carefully crawls back to phygital and physical spaces again, the Indian fashion industry is also taking careful steps ahead. After the showcases in the global fashion capitals of the world earlier this year, in India, FDCI X Lakmé Fashion Week (LFW) is back with a fully physical show. This year, the location has been shifted from Mumbai to New Delhi but not much else has changed, except, of course, the excitement of the physical runway.

It started with a bang yesterday with presentations JJ Valaya, Samant Chauhan, Varun Bahl Couture, Rara Avis Sonal Verma, and Shantanu and Nikhil. Along with models strutting down the runway in designer pieces were celebrity showstoppers like Mrunal Thakur, Manoj Bajpayee, Soha Ali Khan, and Masoom Minawala.

She wore an exquisite headdress, a necklace, and shoulder-dusting earrings as well as a statement antique silver hand cuff. The collection is titled ‘Rumeli~The Summer Story’. The Toofan actor was Valaya’s showstopper at last year’s fashion week as well.

Masoom Minawala looked stunning in the showstopping outfit Varun Bahl. With a soft pink, floral embroidered lehenga skirt, a beaded and embroidered blouse along with a cape to add drama to the look, Minawala showcased the designer’s ‘Quintessential’ collection which is “about curvilinear lines and forms with a vivid explosion of colour yet absorbing the softness of delicate shapes and layers. The pieces have been made using the amalgamation of both traditional and modern designs”, as per the official Instagram account of Lakmé fashion Week.
