Lakme Fashion Week: The Sustainable Revolution of Indian Fashion

Did you know that there is a fashion week in India too? It's called the Lakme Fashion Week and takes place in April and August in Mumbai. India is a growing market in terms of fashion.

Among the already famous names are Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Tarun Tahiliani, Manish Malhotra and Rohit Bal. They have reached sartorial heights. Among the emerging ones, I see a lot of names, who took their color and designs to the catwalks.

Anita Dongre is surely one of the most well-known designers around the country. Her dress was worn by Kate Middleton during her visit to the India. She launched an innovative line with attentiveness to environmental sustainability issues and ethics in work.

In the latest Lakme Fashion Week, Anita proposed the green fashion concept without departing from her style. She is the lady of Indian fashion par excellence. She has been able to create a very dynamic brand that develops on multiple lines.

With exceptional pre-eminence of the Indo-Western style, Rohit Bal draws inspiration from the woman in the mid-west and east. His ultimate goal is the aesthetic pleasure, for the wearer and for those who look.

Mehak Jain and her brand is inspired by the free spirited modern woman on the move. Photographer, stylist and designer Mehak really has the talent. She is a complete artist and I hope she will get the success she deserves.

How can one propose a garment like a swimsuit to Indian women? Shivan and Narresh are an explosive duo. They are the first to have imagined the Indian woman in a swimsuit, respecting her rigor and exalting her body. Not only that, the two designers have launched a special line of blouses and tops for women who have undergone a mastectomy due to breast cancer. They chose to collaborate with some Indian NGOs, who are working mainly with women affected by this serious disease.

Sohaya Misra created Chola as an expression of a new generation of Indian women, who are young and independent, with the desire to affirm. It's not just a brand that expresses the new brigade of young Indian professionals. She returns with simple, fresh fabrics, to carry all day.
