Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive just got done…and be it this fashion week or other…I have always wondered what do all these outfits really cost like. Does it truly mean to give away a quarter of a year savings or more…so I did some research and I am listing down all the outfits with prices and where to buy them from.
#1 Payal Singhal
Out of probably all the outfits in Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2016, the Prachi Desai black outfit was one of my absolute favorite. I honestly expected it to cost a bomb, but given how designers price their outfits…1.6L somehow seems quite decent for the regal look. The cold shoulder flowy dupatta look is totally in and this definitely is a showstopper worthy look.

No, these are not random numbers, but the price of one designer lehenga. Crazy right? But I guess gorgeousness doesn’t really come cheap in this day and age. Everyone loves Anita Dongre, and so do I to some extent…but these figures really do make the head spin..doesn’t it?

#7 Ridhi Mehra
Ridhi Mehra’s outfits are the perfect balance between designer wear, wearable and affordable. By affordable I mean by designer standards. Her outfits are never over the top looks, very subtle and elegant. Easily can be reused on multiple occasions. If you have the budget and means, you can definitely get in touch with the designer and pick up one of her signature outfit styles.

OMG…Finding a wedding lehenga under 1lakh was like an impossible task. But seriously, if you look at the red bridal lehenga, its not all that bad. When designers are costing no less than 3-4lakhs for a single outfit…its better to check out the lesser known designer labels also. You might just hit the jackpot within your budget.

Nope. I didn’t make a mistake in typing an extra zero in the end…The lehenga actually costs 18L+ !!!! Like…I had to like count the numbers twice to double check. I almost thought may be the website wrote by mistake, but then I checked one more of his outfits, and that was priced somewhere around 14L. I don’t think we will be seeing any bride wear this anytime soon 😕
