Lakme Fashion Week 2016 : Elektrocouture failed to impress

Sometimes things look good on paper/ electronic media posts / on racks and they build expectations.
There was hype around Elektrocouture and Friends's debut on Lakme Fashion Week summer-resort 2016 as they were bringing "innovation" to indian fashion scenario.
Quoting IBNlive.com :
Based in the heart of Europe's fashion tech hub, Berlin, ElektroCouture is a collaborative house for bespoke technologies along with six international designers like Lina Wassong, Melissa Coleman, Valérie Lamontagne, Igor Knezevic, Kristin Neidlinger and Chritian Bruns from various countries like Britain, Canada and US, who join hands for the first time to present a collective showcase of fashion and technology with 'ElektroCouture and Friends'.
Integrating technologies into design, accessories, couture and also pret fashion, these designers have stepped into the future to find new ways of digitalising environment and human body.
Some of their work comprises inventive battery systems to the latest in light technology, digital knitting and weaving, traditional hand processes to achieve radical shapes to 3D printing, sound reactive LEDs, motion and light sensors and mood technology.
These labels use light technology the way other designers use colour or cut, with the vision of making light wearable, multifunctional and easy to wear while still being revolutionary by way of self-expression and style."

And after all that when the show started few things came to my mind.
Is fashion only about interesting sihouttes? No. But in the show only the silhouttes were visible. I understand the need for low blue light to set the atmosphere but it made it hard for  the viewers to understand the colour, texture of the materials. When you are doing such great work why not show it properly?!!
There were some interesting 3D printing but I really cant call this collection futuristic. Nothing was new to experience. It seemed we have seen it all before. Or may be I had really high expectations.
Sadly Elektrocouture wasn't a remarkable experience for me.
What do You think about the show?

Beautiful Bengali Brides

I am one of those people who are obsessed about weddings, bridal looks and everything related to that. As a child i used to collect stamps and now i collect pics of brides ,whether its celebs or people i know. Whenever a celeb gets married, i'm like " OK!! GREAT!! Let's hunt her pics!!!" I just love to see how people dress for their D-day. What they wear, how they wear and whom they wear! ..In this post I'm going to talk about Bengali brides,both celebrities and non-celeb princesses.

Beautiful Bngali brides have been captured in films for a long time. One of the famous bengali bride on screen is Aiswarya Rai (Devdas). By her traditional look, she mesmerized the whole nation. I remember, people in west bengal were wearing dhoti and heavy sarees after the film's release. Such was the madness! In recent movies, Yami Gautam made a beautiful Bengali 'bou' in Vicky Donner.

 I love her red painted (by Aalta) fingers. Now days girls of bengal are going for …

Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Expectation !

Do you name things you own?! Like , does your car has a name? Or your pillow! Yes it sounds strange but a lot of people name things they love ( like we give sweet name to our lovers, puchu, kuchi, sweetie,  motu... bla bla ..haha .. shhhhh). I wonder why cosmetic companies name their products?! There can be soo many reasons.  What do you think it is!?

Well our own Lakme has launched 6 matt lip crayons called Lakme Absolute Lip Pout. And these 6 shades has some juicy names as well!!
Pink Fantasy
Magenta Magic
Tangerine Touch
Victorian Rose
Starlet Red
Raving Red




I loveee all their names and the rich colours of these lip pouts are totally pout worthy.  So before buying Lip Pouts I tried them on Lakme's "Lakme Makeup Pro" app. (If you don't have the app just download it from playstore).
