Lakme Fashion Week’s Gen Next show presents the next big names in Indian fashion
From pristine whites to kaleidoscopic colours

The first day of Lakmé Fashion Week Spring Summer 2018 kicked off with the Gen Next show featuring a new pool of talent — Mohammed Mazhar, Padma Raj Keshri, Bobo, Two Point Two and Helena Bajaj Larsen.
Each designer demonstrated their own rendition of summer — while Mohammad played around with pristine whites and layered silhouettes, Bobo juxtaposed vibrant colours with kitschy prints and hand embroidery. One stand-out piece from Bobo’s collection was the printed shirt with balloon sleeves styled with an embellished A-line skirt that met all our check points for summer must-haves.
Two Point Two had a more basic approach — they stuck to checks and stripes, in neutral shades of brown, grey, black and off white. Padma followed with shirt dresses and kurta sets draped with dupattas in a collision of indigo and white.
Helena‘s collection translated metallic colours and foiled prints onto jackets, dresses, tops and cigarette pants.
Overall, it was the perfect ode to summer — from simple whites to dramatic prints, there’s something for everyone.
