LFW: Vizyon’s night out

Nothing defines evening wear better than fluid silhouettes in organza, silk jersey, and swirls of tulle embroidered with precious stones. Vizyon’s collection of “Enchanting Nymphs” at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2010 had  ethereal touches with goddess gowns and dresses, and colours ranging from purple, orange and green.  Designed by Ninon Palisse with Shradha Murarka (Creative Director of Vizyon), the duo played it safe, presenting a retail-friendly collection, in line with popular trends. The only bit of experimentation was done with drapes and the graphic print-and-green combination. Pictures below:

Speaking Chic says: A good buy if you like to dress in what’s most popular right now.

LFW W/F 2010: Fittings in full flow

Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2010 is just a few days away. Months of hard work, creativity, tailoring and burning the midnight oil are close to culmination. It’s time designers test the waters before taking the plunge—it’s time for fittings.

LFW W/F 2010 Fittings

Fittings take place a few days before the designer’s show. The main objective of the fittings is, of course, to see how the clothes fit the models. Is the blouse too tight or loose? Is the skirt the right length for the model? Should the black dress go first or the red one?

During a fittings session, models wear the designer’s clothes, walk a mock mini-ramp, even as designers and their assistants finalise accessories, looks, and the order of presentation for the final show.

At the end of the session, the designer’s assistants tag the outfits and accessories with the names of the models and take pictures of the model in the complete outfit as a handy reference.

Speaking Chic was privy to a couple of such fitting sessions, here are a few few pictures we took.
