on July 31, 2014 / by

Every year as I head for the Lakmé Fashion Week, I'm usually looking forward to a couple of shows and try to wrigle out of a few. This August brings in some exciting news about the LFW Winter/Festive season and I am so looking forward to the season that unfolds between August 20th-24th at a brand new venue the Palladium hotel. If the curtain raiser held there is anything to go by, it's extremely promising. 
Early this week the curtain raiser did spring on a few surprises on us, and we at iCynosure are extremely looking forward to these...
