Nikhil Thampi delighted audiences with his Collection of Untamed Beauty at Lakme Fashion Week

It was a rebellious collection that Nikhil Thampi unleashed on to the ramp at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014. Called “Untamed” it was the designer’s uninhabited offering of unconventional, non-conformist fashion. The highlights of the collection revolved around the intense zipper detailing and the rose gold metallic flowers that were splashed lavishly on the garments which created an eye catching and striking impact.

Nikhil started with an all-white line of very structured ensembles and then gradually added pink – rose, blush and dusty nude. But the colour story moved further and added red, mango, yellow, purple, teal and tan leather for a collection that revealed many interesting fashion facets. Fitted dresses, tailored trousers, shirts, pencil skirts and blazers gave a cross section of ensembles to the audience.

A high waist pleated pant was teamed with a sober sleek jacket but a high slit will-power gown was a sexy addition. Long sleeves with high slits, shorts with bralets and net cover, a sultry beach skirt/blouse combo and red cut-out sheath midi added to the wild untamed look.

The final glittering 3D rosette covered bustier was a dazzling end to the show which started on a sober note and moved into high octane glamour.


For that raw untamed style statement Nikhil Thampi’s collection was a great fashion attack.
