GAURI AND NAINIKA
Runway Report
 

The Mumbai skies may have been overcast for the closing of Lakme Fashion Week, but there wasn't the faintest trace of a cloud over Gauri and Nainika's charming collection. The duo—celebrated for red carpet gowns—was in top form this season with their "Garden of Eden" extravagance complemented with the creative sets by Sumant Jaikishan… dry leaves around the seating and a mirror cobblestone walkway instead of a traditional catwalk. 

With Gaurav Raina playing live music in the backdrop, fairy-like models sashayed down the catwalk in one-shoulder lace dresses, taffeta pencil dresses and ball gowns in lace and satin. "We placed emphasis on fluid silhouettes, soft pastels and abundance of lace and taffeta," they explained. For the grand finale, Lakme girl Amrit Maghera looked ethereal in a white rose gown and came on to the catwalk in a silver moon suspended from the ceiling… to tunes of "Over The Rainbow". Shraddha Kapoor accompanied her in a net and silk dress, Lisa Haydon in a white willpower petal mini, Vipasha Agarwal in a white gown, Indrani Dasgupta in a mini, and the new face of Lakmé Liza Golden in a net and silk creation. The sartorial cocktail was uplifting. 

Megan and Carol—dancers on stilts—thrilled us throughout, wrapping up with a performance of Swan Lake on stilts, which evoked thunderous applause from the audience. A fitting end to an inspiring fashion week.
