The Winter/Festive edition of Lakme Fashion Week, a beloved bi-annual fashion show took place in Mumbai between 21 and 24 August. Much like every year, the week-long affair provided style connoisseurs a promising peek into the newest trends of the season. The event also predicted trends and shades that are most likely anticipated to rule the fashion scene this year. To understand the Lakme Fashion Week 2019 highlights, let’s have a look at the trends and designs that dominated the ramp this year:
Retro-Styles With Voluminous Sleeves And Oversized Shirts
It is said that fashion works in a two-decade cycle – a statement that couldn’t have been truer than at the LFW Winter 2019 edition. With voluminous sleeves, oversized couture, frayed jeans, and stylish flannel shirts, the event announced the return of the retro style. Trends such as oversized men’s shirts that can either be worn loose or tied around the waist are here to stay. You can try the same trend with the tie-up checkered shirt by Cover Story available at Shoppers Stop.
Stylish Grunge With Glamorous Shapes And Bold Prints
While monochromes and clean, crisp patterns have dominated much of last year’s fashion, this year is all about glamorous shapes and bold prints. Bringing the grunge back, animal patterns and big asymmetrical patterns that are predicted to go big this season. Similarly, a trend that is set to make a big comeback is the use of coloured bottoms as seen at the LFW Winter 2019 edition. Don’t believe us?

Traditional Silhouettes And Textiles For The Win
The movement to bring the desi look back isn’t a lost cause after all! Reviving the traditional art of India and its timeless silhouettes were several designers who played heavily on the local theme this year. Mumbai-based artist Manjushree showcased Indian textiles like Eri, Mulberry, Muga of Assam and Metallic Chanderi while further complementing them with the organic tea dyeing in golden hues.

Going Green-Inspired Motifs And Silhouettes
Nature has played muse to several artists over the decades as it also did with renowned designer Gaurav. Gaurav’s clothing line was peculiarly inspired by ‘Kadali-Patram’, meaning banana leaf in Sanskrit. Similar inspirations were also seen in Stanzin’s work who used flowy silhouettes made with a blend of natural fabrics like Pashmina, silk, rayon, and brocade. You too can enjoy the natural comfort of silk with the Shoppers Stop solid A-line silk kurta by Varanga.
Mix Of Fabric Texturing With Pleats, Tucks, And Embroideries
Plane-Jane fashion is now passé! The new-age style calls for a bit of quirk and a whole lot of fun. This was evident from the various techniques and texturing seen at the LFW Winter 2019 edition. Replacing prints and paint, this season saw a substantial use of pleating, tucks, and embroideries. This is much like the Shoppers Stop zari embroidered gown by Kashish.
