Currently compiling a Resource Guide to Fashion Weeks for 2014-15: Bridal Edition. This is one of the posts from the series. More fashion-week posts coming up over the next few days.
Lakme Fashion Week just wrapped up a few weeks back, and if you’re a bride to be, looking for your trousseau here can be pretty overwhelming. India Couture Week and India Bridal Fashion Week are simpler – just a few shows, that you can quickly click through pictures of online and figure out what you like. But Lakme Fashion Week?
With 40+ shows and almost 80 designers, where should you even begin looking?
Right here, of course!
I always get stressed out thinking, “Yes, this designer is decent. But what if I’ve missed out on something even better?” So I went through every single outfit presented at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 to bring to you the best shows. Designers you’ve heard of, and some you haven’t heard of! Making sure you know your options before you step into their stores to shop for your wedding trousseau this season.
Presenting, the best shows from Lakme Fashion Week.
#1 Anita Dongre
Stunning lehengas for the bride who can do without bling-bling-bling. Ethnic, Jaipur bride feel.

Florals and pastels and prettiness. For the super feminine bride.
For your basic trousseau pieces. Earthy feel, great separates (blouses, dupattas and plain anarkalis). Use your imagination to mix and match. Loving the layering!
