Then to Now and finally Forever – LFW Day 1 ends
Sep '09
The first day of Lakme Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2010 which started on September 18 2009 ended with a spectacular show called “Lakmé and IMG celebrate 10 years of fashion” presented by Samira Habitats.

The theme of the show was a fashionable journey from Then to Now and finally Forever. There were 20 Lakme Grand Finale designers who created a sensation with their creations. An interesting audio visual showed the Then of fashion from each designer who showed the evolution to Now and finally gave their visions of style as Forever.

2000 The Splash of Colors
The show opened with Bobby and Manju Grover who presented two striking wine red laser cut suede and chiffon dresses with just a hint of shimmer for the Now section while their Forever look was an elegant chiffon shot silk grey gown with a metallic
Lurex laser cutwork bodice with a dramatic headgear that added the right touch to the creation.
Monapali's Now creations were two very innovative hands free pallav saris in melon and pista green with ornate embroidery while their Forever was a seductive white net sari with a kantha and mirror work borders.
Raghavendra Rathore showed a sleek black and white gown and an intricately draped green satin looped midi for Now, while a black wrapped layered long sleeve gown was his offering Forever 2001 Shimmer Shine and Sparkle
Rina Dhaka added her stylish touches for Now with a black appliqué mini and a long gown with bubble appliqué while Forever it was a net sari with lace edging and 3D flowers teamed with a lace choli.
For Rohit Bal it was a touch of the harlequin for a ruffled pin tucked mini smock and a laser cut black handkerchief gown for Now but Forever the designer had his favourite 16 tiered full circle kurta in ivory.
2002 Brilliance
Rajesh Pratap Singh gave a new definition with his graceful Lurex pants and pleated floor length coat and a shining short jacket for Now while a white chiffon draped slim gown was a total beautiful contrast Forever.
Suneet Varma's glittering net gowns with zardozi appliqué had clusters of 3D flowers for Now but when it came to Forever it was a red brocade velvet and gold 1920s coat to set the trend.

2003 Treasures
Arjun Khanna presented his version of the theme Now with two jeans and cropped embroidered brocade jackets; but it was a mirror work embellished jacket teamed with a crushed panelled lehenga with gold motifs that he felt was Forever.
J J Valaya's two long sleeved glittering paisley embroidered jackets with black churidars was the Now look, but Forever was a dramatic floral ruffled headgear cum choli with white zardozi lehenga that created a sensation.

2004 Fruit ShockFor some pure natural looks there was Aki Narula who showed absolutely wild funky colourful outfits that had a mix of tights, shorts and hep tops; but when it came to Forever the designer used everything from a sack, cane chair, quilt and odds and ends to design the most wacky look.
