Every season, Lakme Fashion Week brings a fresh theme inspired by the International trends to the runway. This summer, the trend statement is ‘Illuminate’ and I got the opportunity to catch some backstage action before the Nikhil Thampi show on Friday. The designer presented his collection titled “Quantum” at Stage One at LFW and he incorporated the Illuminate theme into the looks with the help of the Lakme Salon experts who created 3 stunning beauty looks. The hair, makeup and nail look for this show was no easy feat. The shimmer laden eyes, crystal lips and high volume hair were nothing less than a work of art and the avant-garde beauty looks complemented the powerful and clean silhouettes of the outfits really well.
