Designer Pia Pauro travelled to Greece, fell so deeply in love with the blue sea and white homes, that she made a collection inspired by the country. Pia Pauro’s collection at Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2013 was mostly blue and white with a touch of gold and bright colours. Her prints were “Mykonous” and “Olympia” with fish motifs and gold thread embroidery. The very long and short dresses and tunics had cute turquoise bikinis peeping through, making the ensembles perfect for vacation in Goa, Greece or St. Tropez. Resort wear is always fun, though this collection could have been more fun with a few more interesting pieces. Too bad I’m not going anywhere! I want to carry those large beach bags.
Fashion lovers, Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2012 kicks off today! Here are the shows I’m excited about:
Gen Next show: Every season, LFW kicks off with the Gen Next show. It’s always interesting to watch India’s young fashion talent present their first collections. Looking forward to it! The Gen Next designers are Archana Rao, Shikha Grover & Vinita Adhikare, Manoj Kumar & Vinod Bhardwaj, Tanya Sharma, Megha Garg, Yogesh Chaudhary and Prashant Kumar.

SoFake by Sapna Bhavnani and Sukriti Grover: Sapna and Sukriti’s first collection for SoFake emphasizes on classic cuts, strong structured shapes and the use of basic colours “black, grey and white” that can be paired with anything. Their inspiration? Kathakali and the British Raj!
Shivan – Narresh: Shivan and Narresh are best known for their resort wear. Since I’m already in the process of getting into shape this summer, I’m looking forward to their swim suits. 😉

James Ferreira: He is known as a “master draper and cutter” and returns to the Mumbai fashion scene after a gap of five years. James will present “Save the Air” that is dedicated to Mumbai, and hopes to bring around awareness for the quality of air we breathe.
Which show are you looking forward to today?
