Lakmé Salon And Payal Singhal Presented The ‘Show Stopping Bride’ At LFW 2018


Lakmé Salon and celebrated designer Payal Singhal collaborated to reinvent the rich bridal traditions for the contemporary, Indian bride at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2018. “The Show Stopping Bride” collection by Lakmé Salon showcases refreshing take on contemporary bridal makeup and hair allured to the juxtaposition of flamboyance with simplicity, grandeur with elegance. From extravagant silhouettes to exotic embellishments, Payal Singhal’s collection was seamlessly brought to life by Lakmé Salon’s contemporary and glamorous makeup and hairdos which were inspired by the medieval and late medieval period. 

“It’s always a pleasure working and showcasing at Lakmé Fashion Week and an even greater one to be partnering with Lakmé Salon for the looks of the show. I always aim to give a contemporary twist to traditional looks and hence Lakmé Salon was the perfect fit to complete my looks”, said Payal Singhal.

With statement looks like Ombré lips and spotlight eyes, the look was created with glitter to ensure celestial aesthetics. Lakmé Salon envisioned to showcase an upscale make-up trend for today’s modern age bride with gold to accentuate the inner radiance.

Heena Dalvi, National Creative Director at Lakmé Salon shared, “Giving the royal Indian bride a contemporary makeover, the theme of the show this season was to reinvent ancient Indian hair styles and makeup. The Show Stopping Bride hairstyles were inspired from medieval eras like the Harappan, Mughal and Satavahana period. Lakmé Salon incorporated soft yet intricate-detailing techniques like the low buns, loose knots, Harappan braids, bouffant and top knots that only added to the bride’s elegant and stylish looks. While these were inspired from traditional concepts we have created hair and makeup looks that appeal to the uber urban bride of today.”

The collection on the ramp was an ode to rich beauty traditions of past and today’s modern bride.
