Aikeyah

Leave it to Label Aikeyah to send stark monochromatic outfits down the runway and make it seem as whimsical as a mid-summer’s romance. A visual ode to the oldest philosophy in the world: Yin & Yang, the collection’s finer details with exaggerated bows in varied proportions and easy tulle; embroidered, sheer and scalloped struck the right balance on the runway.

With LFW being all about embracing the east this year, Sanjukta Dutta’s display of everything that the beautiful north east has to offer through her heritage-rich sarees replete with eastern motifs and edgy accessories like the fringed brocade belt was a breather amongst the slew of summer-inspired collection on the runway.

Payal Singhal

The designer’s collection for the season aptly named Saira, draws immensely from all things islamic; it’s culture and influence in art, architecture and beyond. The same can be seen reflected on the runway through garments that have been heavily embellished with intricate Persian motifs in a muted colour palette.
