Fresh talent and new ideas - that's what the Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012 kicked off with on Friday. As many as seven new designers wowed fashionistas at the opening of the five-day gala with distinct collections.
The 'Gen Next' show included new designers like Aniket Satam, Sneha Arora, Asa Kazingmei, Kavita Sharma, Richa Aggarwal and a group of three called Threesome.
All collections were mainly based on an array of colours and textures, with designs which were quirky and the garments, innovative.
The show started with Ashta and Sidharth's collection, which was dominated by colours like bright yellow and navy blue.
It was followed by a line by the Threesome - Mehak Pruthi, Kanika Seth and Ankit Sharma. Their collection was based on 'Avatars'.
The ongoing extravaganza is in its 13th edition, and is being held at the Grand Hyatt, Mumbai from August 3 to 7.
