LFW WF2016 ~ Payal Khandwala
‘The New Emperor’ collection by Payal Khandwala was a big departure from most of the collections that were presented at Lakme Fashion Week's Winter/Festive 2016 edition. A first from the designer, her bridal collection celebrated the woman who is king and takes the lead.
Benarasi brocades and rich silks dominated the collection. True to the designer's style, they were devoid of any embellishments. Recurring lion as a motif added an element of cool. While the jackets, cuffs and collars made a statement for power dressing.
These pieces were quick to make their way from the runway to the closets of the reel stars. You can spot them on a bevy of actors during the Ganpati celebrations.
