Lakmé Fashion Week is a coveted fashion event that brings together the best Indian designers from around the country to showcase their latest collections and one that every emerging designer dreams about. It’s the only fashion festival, which brings credibility to the flourishing Indian fashion industry and integrates India into the global fashion scene.

This year’s Spring/Summer Lakmé Fashion Week is celebrating 15 years of showcasing inspiring Indian fashion to India and the global fashion world. Designers have pulled out all stops presenting stylish summery collections with grandeur.

The opening night launch started with a bang with the inimitable, Sabyasachi Mukherjee presenting a retro themed runway. His unconventional show, titled ‘Big Love’ was an extravagant display of seventies retro ensembles brought to light with high tech laser beams, drones and even balloons.

In possibly one of the most opulent openings for a fashion show, Sabyasachi showcased ‘Big Love’ in front of the creme de la creme of the city. Bollywood actresses such as Sridevi, Deepika Padukone and Kajol were all out in force to support their close friend.
