Designer: Abhishek Byas
Known for: Checks and stripes
The collection: Abhishek Byas needs to do his home work well before hitting the runway and the blame should really go to the jury for letting his collection appear on the runway. It was not only badly made, the designer also didn't seem to have a clear idea as to what he really want to do. Inspired by clowns the outfits had checks, pleats in misg mash pattern.
Designer: Amalraj Sengupta
Known for: Flap detailings
The collection: Young Amalraj Sengupta came out with whites, impeccably made creations for both men and women. His collection was so creative and matured that it was tough to believe that it comes from a 20-something's creative brain. One saw short off shoulder dresses with interesting flab detailings. There were also nice pin tucks and pleats.
Some star show Designer Rocky S showed his collection where he had stars Zayed Khan and Dia Mirza, as the showstoppers. So far as the LFW has seen very few star apperance, their entry on the runway did create some stir and interest.
