For the summer/resort 2018 season, there can be nothing more glamorous than luxurious ethnic wear. ‘Lajjoo C’, established in 1999 by Lajjoo Kapur, has since been dressing the connoisseurs of fashion in her artistic creations.
Called ‘Ode To Mumbai’, from an urban woman to her city, it offered a gracious look for the Indian trend setters. The designer’s fashion directions revolved around an old world charm. And mind you, this was Lajjoo C’s debut show at 6 Degree during Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2018.
The show opened with a poetry recitation and the solo saxophone Merlin D’Souza in the background.
Gorgeous embellishments, lush fabrics like fine silks, and organzas were in earthy tones of rust, beige, ivory and neon citric lime. The brocades were created in Benaras and appeared in metallic tones to add a rare, rich quality to the ensembles.
The traditional, fashionable creations moved from saris to Farsi pants, kurtas, lehengas and floor-kissing anarkalis.
Embroidery techniques were the focal point of the garments. The addition of stripes added a sporty touch to the garments. Elegant jackets, swirling blouses, long brocade skirts and separates were a grand offering.
The show stopping creation was a silk marori-embroidered olive green lehenga with a cutwork hemline, matching mirror-studded blouse and Chand Bala organza dupatta that stole the hearts of the ladies in the audience.
