If there’s one thing that sets the tone for an ardent form of self-expression it has to be fashion. It’s also the aspect that defines autonomy at a particular period and place, triggered by a specific context in clothing & accessories, makeup & hairstyle, including a specific type of lifestyle. Fashion is all about defining a look driven by the trending features in the industry, leading the way to create a series of style combinations influenced by a specific theme.
The Concept of Fashion Trends
Clothing is a dynamic aspect of human existence, and fashion trends are ever-changing. While the season influences what we wear, it’s what celebrities wear that inspires us to adopt a specific trend. And, what better than magnanimous trendsetting fashion shows that set the fashion world on fire.
While it’s not always affordable to buy famous designer outfits, these grandeur events give alternate options to recreate expensive outfits and match them with the right accessories.
One such show that transforms fashion trends and sets a redefining tone with every event is the Lakme Fashion Week.
