Maheshwari silk Burberry trench anyone?

One of the highlights for me at Lakme Fashion Week this season were the designs from Vogue’s Project Renaissance that I got to see up, close and personal. A collaboration between Indian artisans and international fashion brands, the designs were revealed in January in celebration of the magazine’s fifth anniversary.

It was hard to pick a favourite!

  1. I saw all the lovely designs in Vogue’s Fifth Anniversary issue- the Alberta Ferretti dress was my favourite. There were some beautiful creations with jamawar, bandhani and Kashmiri embroidery too!
