Power Girls of Day 5 | Lakme Fashion Week S/R 2015

While all eyes were stuck on the shows that were scheduled to take place at the Main Stage Area (MSA) and of course, the grand finale, three designers left us impressed with their collection showcase at the Jabong Stage. These Power Girls of Day 5 at the Lakme Fashion Week S/R 2015, namely Farah Sanjana, Ridhi Mehra and Shilpa Reddy, showcased some of the most beautiful outfits that day, and well, we just couldn't take our eyes off it.

Farah Sanjana's Military Diva
Every season, designer Farah Sanjana surprises us and how! Last year, we loved how she played with a burst of colors and prints inspired by flamingos. But this season, her ode to the modern women, who does not shy away from dressing up the way she wants, sure turned a lot of heads. The beautiful creations, embellished with the innovative motifs of swords and scimitars, infused sophistication and strong, fierce prints in pretty hues like porcelain, ivory, pale pink, amber, classic black, soft mint and olive green among others, perfectly. Thus, making it the must have garb of an independent, head strong woman. Majestic skirts with strong cuts were teamed with jackets; body hugging skirts spoke of the feminism, while trousers redefined the Spanish silhouettes. Some of our favorites included the shift dresses, cropped tops teamed with gathered skirts, bikinis enveloped under printed capes among others.

Elegant, mesmerizing and magical - three words that best describe designer Shilpa Reddy's collection - Moon Lit Sand. True to its title, the ethereal collection was inspired by the moon and  hence, the color palette comprised of some lovely hues like gold, silver, white, sand, royal blue, copper, grey and nudes, giving the collection a timeless edge. We loved the easy going, relaxed silhouettes of the collection. Some of our favorites included the skirts, jackets, tops, blouses, capes, pants and lehenga cholis in luxurious fabrics like malka and khadi silk. The intricate designs with embellishments like beads, sequins and crystals, floral motifs, thread work, embroidery and subtle texturing stood out in each outfit. Moments after the lights dimmed, actress Nimrat Kaur walked in and gracefully took over the runway in a stunning forest green embroidered lehenga teamed with a half sleeved jacket worn over a sensual low cut blouse.

Ridhi Mehra's A Mirror Affaire
Designer Ridhi Mehra took the crop top world by storm last season,with her versatile crop tops in various hues and intricate lace work winning several hearts. This season, her glamorous and chic collection titled A Mirror Affaire, was inspired by the intriguing interior decoration of the Sheesh Mahal - the palace of unbelievable beauty. The collection artistically created a melange of the romantic era and the craftsmanship of the Mughals. Pretty, soft-powdered hues like blush, nude, peach as well as bold shades like mint green, orange and dreamy white dominated the color palette.
While Mehra's signature design elements were hard to miss, the creations also included a brilliant mix of aari and mirror work, with hints of zardosi. We just couldn't take our eyes off some beautiful anarkalis, jumpsuits, capes, jackets with peplums, saris, blouses and cholis.
The collection saw the use of Chanderi silk, georgette, chiffon, satin and net, that created airy feminine silhouettes. Showstopper Kiara Advani, who debuted in Fugly last year, graced the runway in a stunning green choli and lehanga enriched with several layers of embroidered fabric.
A word for the gorgeous footwear by Dune London and accessories by Prerto, that further enhanced the overall look.
