The second edition of Lakmé Fashion Week 2015 kicked off to a grand start with several firsts, including Manish Malhotra’s debut into menswear.

The Winter/ Festive week showcased a rich mix of Indo-Westerns. Andhra-based designer Gaurang Shah revived the Kanjeevaram, Khadi, Uppada, and highlighted embroideries such as zardosi, gotta, chikankari. Veteran designer Ritu Kumar showcased opulent gold and silver textiles that feature white-on-white hand cut Jamdani, motifs such as badami, kyari and shikargah.

Anita Dongre ended day 2 at LFW with her ‘Grassroot’ collection that was dedicated to reviving traditional craftsmanship such as Ahir embroidery from Gujarat, and ikat from Karnataka and Hyderabad amidst others.
