Malaika (Munni) & Amrita fire LFW runway for Vikram

Lit glass lanterns lined the ramp along with crystal edged bunches of gold and silver branches from the ceiling of the Ballroom at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. The backdrop was a mirror work arch and the stage was set for a superb fashion presentation.

Creating dazzling glamour on the ramp Bollywood's famous designer, Vikram Phadnis presented by INK Infrastructure unleashed a fusion line for Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2012. There was a profusion of colour, texture, shape, and silhouettes as Vikram brought a vibrant Indo-West line of perfect resort bridal wear. Choosing a mélange of colours, the designer opted for neutral creams, glitzy gold and deep black with just a touch of prints to add drama.

The fabrics moved from sheer net to seductive georgette, luxurious linen, soft voiles and regal pashminas. Keeping true to his concept Vikram had a variety of silhouettes that ranged from cigarette pants, palazzos, skirts to kalidaars worn with interestingly styled bundis or at times structured jackets and capes.

Saris were edged with broad gold borders, while lace was luxuriously used to make it a feminine offering on the hemlines, cuffs, bodices and even the lehengas and kurtas. Swirling full circle kurtas, raja coats with ornate embroidery, sequined cholis, will-power wide legged jumpsuits, corsets teamed with lace embroidered saris, kurtas with long sleeved boleros and multi gathered anarkalis were a vision of beauty.

The first half of the show had Amrita Arora Ladakh swaying down the ramp in an ecru net lehenga, choli with a dupatta. Bringing six men's wear creations, Vikram showed regal sherwanis teamed with salwars or churidars with lush embroidery and added on gorgeous dupattas.

The printed section was vibrantly colourful as the interesting fabrics appeared for saris, lehengas, angarkhas, cholis and shrugs. Ending the show was the sultry “Munni” Malaika Arora Khan in a dazzling black heavily embroidery lehenga and long sleeved choli with a dupatta.

To complete the look Vikram designed the most unconventional hairdos – with white bangles or stripes of lace to add grandeur to the creations. Known for his elaborate embellishments the garments were beautifully ornate with sensational embroidery and Vikram added stunning gotta work for dupattas, stoles and then finished the edges with tantalizing tassels.

For that show stopping entry anywhere in the world, the Vikram Phadnis collection presented by INK Infrastructure will stop the conversation.
