As we decode the latest fashion trends, Day 1 at Lotus Makeup India Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2020 kick started with a bang and day 2 continued the trend. The fashion week was taken up a couple of notches with drool worth and jaw-dropping ensembles. Day 2 saw the coming together of three designers Jenjum Gadi, Munkee.seeMunkee.Doo and Naturally Anuradha in association with EbixCASH.
The showcase featured a range of refreshing and light silhouettes. From cotton dresses that are perfect for the summer to Assam silk sarees, this was a pleasant surprise.

The spring/summer 2020 collection celebrated the classic colour combination of black and gold in menswear. Featuring a wide variety of sharply tailored and casual silhouettes. The line up included some of the latest fashion trends including, blazers, trousers, bomber jackets and a new spin on the classic kurta. Jenjum chose to play with layering and drapes presenting his creations in a new light. Blazers, trousers and shirts with heavy embellishments were spotted on the runway. He used thread and zari work to create the magic.

The brand brings together modern innovation on classics and transforms them into contemporary staples for urban lifestyle. A common thread amongst all their creations is an appreciation for clothes that suggest something new but are timeless.
