Different ways to use Lace 

Vera Wang

Lace was used extensively in nearly all designer collections displayed at the Fashion Week. But this time around lace was used in many forms like cutwork, drapes and trimming. Lace looked beautiful when set against rich fabric like silk & satin. In order to incorporate lace in your Indian wear, use some on the pallu of your saree or sleeves of the blouse.

Bright colored Bags & Footwear

Victoria Beckham

Fabulous shoes & handbags in bright colors such as neon & shimmer were seen this year. The simple silhouettes were added with glamour when paired with shoes in colors such as orange, golden or even silver. 

Shocking colors


What better way to make a fashion statement than wearing a color that catches everyone’s attention. Shocking colors like hot pink, fiery reds, fuchsia, lemon yellow, etc. were a rage on the runway. So if you have an outfit in shocking color in your wardrobe, this might just be the right time to flaunt it.

Art of Layering

Zac Posen

Alluring fabrics were beautifully transformed into fairytale like outfits by the designer. Tiers were a favorite and were not just limited to gowns, but also to knee length dresses & tops. 

Minimal Embellishments

Ralph Lauren

Embellishments were less in the collections showcased this year as the emphasis was on more draping and layering. Embellishments were limited to the hemlines and the bodice part only. Leather trimmings & lace was highlighted more at this year’s fashion week
