“To ugly ducklings everywhere, don’t worry about those fluffy morons; they’ll never get to be swans”
Zoe Marriot penned this idea in her book ‘The Swan Kingdom‘. At the Lakme Fashion Week 2016, this thought and 5 top cool things were to be seen. Let me get to the cool part in a bit.
Fashion has always been about thinking out of the box. Taking bold steps into the unknown, not sure of what would become the next fashion trend or fad. The current installment of Lakme Fashion Week 2016 was also a step and a glimpse in that direction. The entire theme was ‘fashion meets technology‘ and there was plenty of technology to be seen during the week. Innovative stage props, live digital coverage of the event, selfies galore and loads of social media engagement. The celebrities, designers, models, brands and the consumers, all of them took to the digital platform in a big way to express their views and thoughts.
So, as i was saying, let’s now see what the 5 cool things were at the Lakme Fashion Week 2016
