Life | Snapshots at Lakmé Fashion Week S/R 2016

As with every bi-annual fashion season, the curtains closed with the extravaganza that is Lakmé Fashion Week. While Style File has been exclusively covering the event live for years now, this summer resort season was like nothing I've ever experienced. This time around, it was a jam-packed five days of juggling interviews and makeup decodes as a beauty editor as my boys smoothly handled the blog.

From wrapping up the day at 4am to being washed over with the beauty of some amazing shows to even being featured for street style on the LYF terrace; it was immense! Actually, even immense is an understatement because it was magical and exhausting while continuing to amaze me and I wouldn't have it any other way. Here's a peek of what transpired during the five days of Lakmé Fashion Week S/R 2016.
