As the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week and Delhi Fashion Week end in style, most of the designers and some celebrities attended a post party event at Plaza Grand Hyatt in Mumbai.
Celebrities like Manisha Koirala, Sonam Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh, and others showed up at the post party.
In its tenth year now, the Lakme Fashion Week had 73 designers on board. Of these, 65 of them showcased their collections on the ramp in five days.
The 73 designers presented their collections at 'The Source', a marquee area at Lakme Fashion Week for business interactions.
Besides them, Lakme and IMG Fashion also promoted young designers. Eight new talents presented their collections under the GenNext program along with six emerging designers and 48 established ones.
Celebrating the spirit of fashion, season after season, sponsors like Levi's, SkodaAuto, Westside and DHL continue to pledge their commitment to Lakme Fashion Week. This season, Lakme has also collaborated with new sponsors like Carlsberg, Grey Goose, Marie Claire, while Grand Hyatt-Mumbai is the venue and official hospitality partner.
The Lakme Fashion Week Grand Finale had a comeback by veteran designer Anamika Khanna. The event had domestic buyers as well as those from Middle East, Australia, Canada, Netherlands, Switzerland and South East Asian countries.
Last season, the Menswear Day and the Group Accessory Designer show had received much applause and Lakme repeated both this season.
International model Naomi Campbell came for the first time in Lakme Fashion Week and walked the ramp for the cause of the 26/11 victims. Apparently, Campbell had requested friends Roberto Cavalli, Carolina Harrera, Versace, YSL and Isaac Mizrahi to showcase their designs at Lakme Fashion Week.
