15 reasons we are excited about Lakme Fashion Week!

     Next

Next

The recent curtain raiser event held in Mumbai offered us a sneak peek. (And got us kinda excited!)

Lakme Fashion Week is scheduled to begin on August 20.

Goes without saying that we will be reporting from the venue throughout the duration but we finally got to know just what we can expect from the fashion extravaganza this season, all thanks to this curtain raiser held in Mumbai.

Let's get started shall we?


1. Kiara Advani

She turned up the heat in the otherwise lacklustre film Fugly.

And it looks like the runway won't be any different.

Not that we are complaining.

She has been walking the Lakme Fashion Week runway for longer than we can remember. And each time she emerges from the wings, our hearts skip a beat, we go weak in our knees and basically want to just kiss the ground on which she walks.

To be able to do that season after season, year after year takes more than just good looks.

Some people make their presence felt. Others don't have to.

Needless to say, Himangi Parte, towering over designer Vaishali Shadangule, is the latter.
