LFW Winter/Festive 2019 ends on high noteMumbai, Aug 26 (IANS) The Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019 ended with much pomp and glamour. Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan brought the curtains down as she walked the ramp for designer duo Gauri and Nainika at the Lakme Absolute Grand Finale of the bi-annual fashion event that completed 20 years.

Donning a matte black, layered gown, the actress looked a vision in black as she strutted on the ramp amid a grand set which looked no less than a castle.

The designer presented shimmery evening gowns, jumpsuits, skirts and dresses in solid colours like powder blue, black, brown, green. Floral motifs, 3D floral embellishments, frills and sequins dominated the collection. There was a strong hint of a shine, shimmer and botanical-inspired embroideries. The rubber boots which the designer paired with almost all the outfits were definitely a hit.

The final day of LFW 2019 on Sunday also saw National Award winning actress Kangana Ranaut close the show for designer Disha Patil, wearing a powder blue embellished lehenga-choli with a one-sided extended shoulder drape.

Patil’s collection comprised occasion wears. There were motifs and patterns of the Kilim or Persian rugs that were woven into the garments. Origami drapes added glamour to the shoulders and necklines of the garments. Colours ranged from ivory, powder blue, teal and peach. A variety of options for the lehengas, cholis and dupattas, asymmetric, long, choli and off-shoulder top with pants and skirt were also spotted.
