MUMBAI, India — Lakmé Fashion Week ended on Sunday, exhibiting a greater international mix as well as stronger Western influence on silhouettes, on a rousing note of celebration after five days of feting fabric, embroidery, weddingwear in both couture and ready-to-wear, as well as some notable exchanges of international design on the ramp. These included the launch of Australian designer duo Pamela Easton and Lydia Pearson, as well as a stronger Western influence on silhouettes by young and emerging designers.
The winter-festive edition of the fashion week had another enduring trend — the palazzo pant, a common theme for designers both young and established. Although the style has been a favorite on the runway for more than 18 months — Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor sported the style at Namrata Joshipura’s show in the summer of 2013 — this time, the palazzo made its entry in different styes, fabrics and combinations.
