The last day of the Lakme Fashion Week was also the prêt day of the week, with only Tarun Tahiliani showcasing his couture line.
Flower appliqués were seen throughout the collections of designers like Chaitanya Rao, Preeti Chandra and Rimzim Dadu. Yellow was the predominant colour in collections by designers like Kallol Datta and Narendra Kumar.
Innovative sari drapes were yet another feature every designer experimented with. Raakesh Agarvwal, Wendell Rodricks and Tarun Tahiliani all showed saris on the final day. New marketing ideas were also seen — Raakesh Agarvwal, for example, displayed only one garment in his stall. He said, “This is a limited edition garment and the single display will create buzz around it.”
The grand finale started late and barring Lara Dutta, there were no celebrities to scorch the ramp. No stars were seen on the front row except for actor Arjun Rampal and wife Mehr Jesia. Big designers like Anamika Khanna, Tarun Tahiliani, Neeta Lulla, Wendell Rodricks, Manish Malhotra and Narendra Kumar did not have any stall in the source area.
