So the general rule for most shows is that no  one designer usually showcases for consecutive seasons. It gives them ample time to work on their new collection, filter in new trends and outdo themselves. Just as it has been for the previous few years, this time as well, we have designers who are showcasing at LFW after a year. Here’s taking a look at what they’ve already showcased and why we’re waiting to be seated front row at their show this year…

Vasundhara’s elegant jewellery

Jewellery took a whole new turn at Vasundhara’s show. Those of us who were expecting accessories were absolutely taken by surprise when jewellery doubled up as clothing. Talk about wearing big big bling, huh? Giving a whole new desi  twist to the OTT phenomenon, we could do no more than gape at the way the elegant strands of jewellery draped themselves around this model like a snug-fit garment.

Ilk’s wearable art

While they might look like digital prints, Ilk’s collection used intricate threadwork to create detailed, floral motifs. The designer duo fused practicality and couture with a super fun take on regular cuts and garments, all set in monochrome especially for this collection.

Anita Dongre’s black and gold collection

If there’s one designer who knows how to colour within the lines but with her own vivid set of crayons it’s got to be Anita Dongre. Last year, she broke all the rules of traditional festive wear by tailoring a collection in black and gold. And this year, she pays a tribute to the artisans and craftsmen of India with her ‘Grassroot’ collection that’s inspired by the traditional Indian weaving artists and art forms.

Kallol Datta’s strong graphic prints

One look at the designer himself and you’ll know that Kallol Datta’s creations are nothing short of loud, whimsical and bordering on the absurd. Having only seen his work in print and publications over the last couple of years, we can’t wait to see what he has in store for us this time around!
