10th LFW finale winds up with Anamika's Bridal Sutra Collection

Apr '09
The venue of the Grand Finale of the Fall/Winter 2009 Lakme Fashion Week at the Grand Hyatt was turned into a beautiful temple with hundreds of metres of fabrics and floral bells suspended from the ceiling with abstract branches curving on the wall. The ramp was edged with hundreds of lamps and as temple bells chimed the fashion extravaganza began.

Anamika Khanna the darling of Kolkata couture and the lady who has made waves on the international fashion scene, presented one of the most stunning collections seen on the ramp at the Grand Finale at Lakme Fashion Week, inspired by the Bridal Sutra collection specially created by Lakme for Summer 2009.

The Lakmé Bridal Sutra Summer 2009 collection has a weightless foundation that blends into the skin rendering a naturally beautiful and radiant finish. The blusher is a pure pressed powder that provides sheer, lightweight application. A revolutionary new product – the cheek and lip tint adds a pop of colour to your cheeks and lips giving a freshly flushed look.

The lip colour range is enriched with super rich moisturizers combined with silky matte textures. For defining your lips, there is the glide on lip pencil that glides on smoothly and stays creamy. A unique foam tip liner – the Eye Artist helps outline, define and intensify your eyes in one easy stroke.

Anamika's collection divided into a three part bridal wear story had all the typical creative touches that the designer is renowned for in her fusion look with large doses of ethnic elements. Matching the soft delicate sensual colours of the Lakme Bridal Sutra Summer 2009 line, the collection followed the palette for the season.

The Pastel Collection was a dream in shades of coral, salmon, and pink, peach which were entrancingly designed into the most delicate garments. The Prints line was a riot of colours and patterns and the soft white and crèmes were a dream to behold. Anamika's detailing took an unconventional turn as she knotted the sides of the ensembles or dupattas to create asymmetric lines.

Floral embroidery, trellis work, tiny digital Rajput figurines for prints on silk, antique zardosi and pearls embellished the creations. The fabrics were summery and fluid with chiffon, cotton and the shimmer of lamé adding to the very feminine look.

The silhouettes were soft and swirled around the models as they glided down the ramp. Gorgeous kurtas with shimmering gold borders, Saris with embroidered edges or red and gold borders, Gold polka dots on ecru saris, lots of tiny gold buttees, drapes for luxurious kurtas, salwars had volume and pants were crushed and crinkled for comfort.

Sheer net floated for lehenga over black or red churidars while net cholis had visible shoulder pads and worn over black bustiers.

The grandeur of the all net panelled lehenga over churidars, saris worn short but with cigarette pants or churidars, flowing kaftans were how Anamika visualizedbridal wear for Summer 2009. There was grandeur and style all rolled into one for a superb bridal collection with distinct touches of Bengal.

The finale was the graceful appearance of the three Lakme faces - Indrani Dasgupta in a majestic red long gown covered with gold work, Amrit Magera in a red and cream draped embroidered kurta and Vipasha Agarwal in a grand ornate lehenga, choli and dupatta.

The Anamika Khanna brilliant show for Lakme Bridal Sutra summer 2009 made a glittering impact and was the most awaited event of the Fall/Winter 2009 Lakme Fashion Week.
