Ten Levi's Gen Next designers caused a fashion storm for Spring/Summer 2009 at Lakme Fashion Week.

ANAND BHUSHAN:
"White Noise" was the title of Anand Bhushan's collection which was a mélange of duchess satin, lame, silk, chiffon and taffeta in a soft colour palette of ivory for lovely minis in simple silhouettes for delicately shaded dresses and smart coats in grey and ivory with pretty embroidery that will make ideal cocktail wear.

HARANGAD SINGH:

Using pure khadi and handloom fabrics along with silks, Harangad Singh used muted colours for ivory and leaf green creations that had high waist pants teamed with an olive blouse, smart brown jumpsuit with scooped neckline, a cute cut work cape over halter dress and a leaf green dress with shoulder interest. High on detailing and styling the collection was indeed very elegant.

IMCHATSUNG IMCHEN:
Inspired by the headhunter and his consort from the legends of Nagaland, Imcha Imchen's black, red and white line for men and women had sharply cut jackets, trousers and blouses - many of them teamed with checked pants or tops.

Interesting pieces were the shorts with white elastic sleeve blouse, stylized shirts, suit with black/red piping on lapel edges and a lovely black/red white blouse worn with a waist coat and mini. Quilting was discreetly done for the jackets to give the garments a rustic yet modern touch.

KIRAN JAISINGHANI AND MEGHNA AGARWAL:
"Myoho" was a collection inspired by the Buddhist mystic forces so the detailing revolved around tiny folds, pleats and tucks in a colour story that was earthy, to achieve shade blocking for the short dresses, smocks, apron frocks with collar, baby dolls and long layered skirts with crushed blouses. The look was utterly feminine and fabulous with surface treatments giving the different fabric mixes an interesting touch.

MANOJ DUBEY:
There was colour and excitement in this collection with red and orange for pin tucked top worn with tiny green sequined hot pants or a shimmering purple gilet with cowl pants. Geometrics came in the form of black and green dresses and interesting matte weaves that made the contrasting coloured ensembles come alive. The fabric texturing and treatment was exciting and so were the styles that were elegantly feminine.

NIDHI GAMBHIR:
For an all mini line in ivory textured fabrics the silhouettes revolved around shifts and the princess line cuts with discreet bird print on light breezy silks to give the dresses a summery look. The inspiration was the modern woman who walks on international shores; so the detailing was beautiful with cording and prints being used cleverly to turn them into eye catching garments.

RIMI NAYAK:
Capris, swing tops, tiny embroidered shrugs over bubble skirt and sheer blouses, along with a mix of print and colour; both dull and bright which gave this collection an unusual touch. The final gown in green and brown with intricate rouching was for formal wear while the moss green dress with a tiny brown cape could work well for daytime options.

RITESH KUMAR:
"Aphrodisiac" was an avant garde mix of graphics in nature with drapes, layers and wraps which were used together for engineered silk to achieve and unusual line of garments in grey and black. Layered tops with white drapes, rouched draped pants with shrugs, tiered dresses with satin piped side pockets in shaded fabric and asymmetric satin dresses and rolled collar jackets had some interesting construction techniques for women's wear.

SANJAY HINGU:
This all men's wear collection was sharply tailored with checked pants and printed shirts with waist coats which gave a mix of western styling with Indian touches. In ivory shades for linen there were jackets with appliqué, chemically washed linen coats and sporty suits with fish embroidery. The look was casual, yet smart which will give the male dresser several options for summer 2009.

PRIYANKA VERMA AND RAVINDRA MOHAN: "Concur" was the name of the collection which was in a colour story of bright red, green and yellow with the base being grey. The all knit collection of dresses with colourful appliqué and drape had contrast fabric sleeves or silver insets for blouses. The final military trench coat over a knit mini was a great fashion statement. The styling was a simple shift silhouette with a great base pattern.
