India's: Peek-A-Boo Trend

India's: Peek-A-Boo Trend


From the Mumbai runways to the Delhi red carpets there's one trend thats truly a scorcher this season...the Peek-a-boo kurti. 

From sheer fabrics, to deep cut backs the traditional kurti gets a daring make-over. As Lakme Fashion Week was in full swing, the top designers bought their new contemporary techniques to a classic kurti top that has moved and evolved from generations to generations. There can definitely be some influences or inspiration taken from the western catwalks, as the mid-drift trends showcases on high-street brand as well as high streets store. India can not afford to miss out on a trend thats grabbing everyones attention.

From long kurti's with peek-a-boo detailing, and Lehenga's with added layering to overall silhouette, the whole mood of the looks have been relaxed. A tone down from rich fabrics, this seasons it sees lighter fabrics and more sheer highlighting. Less embroidery focus and more design suaver.  

The best way to take on this trend is to not overcrowd it with too much else, focus on one area you want to showcase. When working the peek-a-boo trend, keep embroidery minimal and choose striking colours and added textures of fabrics. Be brave and explore it your way!-
