Designers Gauri & Nainika are experts at dreaming up beautiful ethereal creations for those special occasions and Red Carpet stunners. For Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2020, the pair was inspired by the colours of NEXA and unveiled a grand look that was perfect for an evening in the enchanted garden when the romantic mood strikes.
Corseted bodices and delicately plisséd skirts with never-ending trains were visions of fragile elegance in tulle splashed with discreet glitter. The designers’ signature voluminous organza dresses created in black and white printed florals sported luxurious giant scalloped ruffles that cascaded from the cleverly designed seams.
Sleek, slinky, gowns constructed in lush velvets were highlighted with lunar inspired embellishments while detailing and texturing was of a very high order and ensured that it was the focal point of the garments on the runway.
Tulle ruffles, a favourite of the designing duo was reinvented as delicate hand-embroidered wreaths that daintily edged the necklines and silhouettes of the creations, while the gowns had an arresting iridescent quality but the necklines at times remained feminine and demure to add a touch of classic sophistication.
With monochromes as the essential base of the colour story, Gauri & Nainika added hints of royal blue with pops of glittering chrome that was inspired by the latest NEXA colours.
Making a graceful and almost balletic entrance the beautiful Bollywood star Nora Fatehi glided in a black, sleek, sheath, gown with a giant white lavish train.
When it’s formal glamour the fashionable trendsetters desire after the sun sets over the horizon, Gauri & Nainika’s utterly sensuous and elegant creations will be conversion-stopping pieces throughout the evening.
