Gen Next designers open Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive
Aug '12
Day One of the Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012 season opened with a great show by the Gen Next designers who displayed to an applauding audience their creations featuring innovative and unconventional fashion. These great finds by Lakmé Fashion Week will once again give the Indian fashion industry the bright young stars to watch out for.

Aniket Satam – A New Fashion Beginning
Calling his collection “Aarambh” (New Beginning) Aniket Satam’s creations came to life for the designer while reading about the Mayan myth of 2012. Celebrating a new beginning in fashion, Aniket’s layered silhouettes had elaborate tactile texturing to present a creative collection.

Asa Kazingmei – Immortal Fashion
Presenting his collection titled “Immortal” Asa Kazingmei was inspired by the beauty of the Naga Tribe’s textiles of Tngkhul. Unconventional thread work and weaves of the fabrics were highlighted by the creativity of Asa. Interesting lattice work on black and maroon sheaths and stunning abstract prints for asymmetric hemline dresses were the eye-catching additions to his range.

Astha Sethi And Sidharth Arora – A Stylish Androgynous Look
Displaying a cute but quirky androgynous collection, Astha Sethi and Sidharth Arora had a fun line of women’s wear. Shoulder emphasis, sharp constructions and colourful play of hues were used for a line of clothing that had hints of seduction with touches of unconventional style.  Calling their collection “Comical Fellow” the designers worked with only blue, yellow and black.

Kavita Sharma – Intricately Embellished
“It’s a Beautiful Life” was the collection that Kavita Sharma showed on the ramp which displayed touches of elegance and simplicity. Keeping true to her theme, the inspirations were simple and naive like a telephone booth, children’s park, zebra crossing, ice cream parlour and clock tower which were used for the intricately crafted embellished dresses, long skirts and seductive tops.

Richa Aggarwal – Street Art to the Fore
Street Art in fashion came alive in the collection by Richa Aggarwal. Bringing in a marked touch of desi styling, Richa’s inspiration was definitely rustic as her ideas were drawn from the kitschy colours and style of slum dwellers in the country. The vibrant mix of fabrics and hues of the street was evident in her designs as multi patterned pants, stylish waist coats, cool tops and colourful capris revealed some traditional textiles and crafts.

Sneha Arora – A Fashionable Shift
Sneha Arora’s collection called “Paradigm” was inspired by her former corporate life, so the designer’s shift to fashion encouraged her to present an interesting line of women’s wear. From cute comfy dresses, to skirts, tops and then onto crisp jackets, trousers and striking dresses; the collection revealed a fresh and stylish take on comfort wear for the busy working women.
