Lakme Fashion Week has begun!!! This fashion week there are a lot of new and different things to look forward to and I don’t just mean the new venue i.e. The Palladium Hotel. Usually fashion week is all about the clothes and how the makeup & hair compliment them, but not this time!!! Im super excited to tell you guys that Lakme salon is having a hair show at fashion week and the hair is the hero this time! Lakme salon presents 'Show Stopping Hair’ where you will see the biggest hair trends from the Indian Runways at Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festival 2014.
The collection aims to revolutionize hair fashion in India which Im totally for!!! A lot of people pick their outfit first and then style their hair around it but sometimes I think its more fun to do the opposite ;) The show has been conceptualised and crafted by Lakmé Salon experts with international hairstyle maestro Winnie Loo, and styled by designer Little Shilpa, it looks like its going to be one of the best shows this week.
The collection includes three dramatic themes:
- ‘Illusion’, inspired by the natural phenomenon of the ‘Northern Lights’, it is a playful fusion of colors.
- ‘Metamorphosis’ inspired by the complex art forms of postmodern Paris, it is the line of dual hairstyles and textures ranging from straight and curly, to short and long.
- ‘Moulin Rouge’, a modern take on the ‘classic elegant’ with bouffants and waves.
Here’s what Shailesh Moohya and Little Shilpa have to say about the show...
Shailesh Moolya, National Hair Trainer, Lakmé Salons states “Lakmé Salon have been the backstage experts at Lakmé Fashion Week since its inception, and through the ‘Show Stopping Hair’ collection, this expertise in hair styling will be the focus on the ramp. By introducing the latest looks and trends that are making waves internationally, we aim to create excitement on the Indian runway like never before. We have created styles that are avant-garde as well as conventional, keeping in mind women with various hair lengths, personalities, professions.”
Little Shilpa adds, “Lakmé Salon and I share a common belief that “Fashion goes beyond clothing”. I was delighted when I got the opportunity to style the ‘Show Stopping Hair’ collection for them as their vision of making Indian women runway ready, matches perfectly with my fashion style and statement.”
I can’t wait for 22nd of August!!! And don’t worry guys Im taking you all along ;) I am going to shoot a video and take you right from the pre show backstage madness to the front row of the show!!!
