The finale of the Lotus Makeup India Fashion Week (LMIFW), on March 16, 2019, will see a celebration of the sari. The sari, its multiplicity and its personality will be showcased by designers Akaaro, Alpana and Neeraj, Amit Aggarwal, Anamika Khanna, Anavila, Anita Dongre, Bodice, Gaurav Gupta, Little Shilpa, Neeru Kumar, Pankaj & Nidhi, Payal Khandwala, Prashant Verma, Raw Mango, Rimzim Dadu, Rohit Bal, Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna, Taani by Tanira Sethi, Tarun Tahiliani, Urvashi Kaur and Wendell Rodricks.
The grand finale pays homage to the adaptability ingrained in the warp and weft of this traditional fabric, which hasn't lost its relevance pan-India despite the western onslaught. Today, the sari has seen many innovative and artisanal renditions to woo the modern, thinking woman in a youthful way. New dimensions are being curated out of the existing template of the sari to make it culturally emblematic.
Lotus Make-up India Fashion Week will be held in New Delhi from March 13 to 17, 2019. The last day of the event will be dedicated to Pearl Academy. This year, the show will bring in a fresh perspective to the fast changing dynamics of fashion with consumers looking at it as a powerful vehicle of self-expression.
