Textile day at Lakmé Fashion Week always leaves you wiser – about techniques, draping and of course, the multiple types of cloth. Be it khadi in the case of Raghavendra Rathore, or Maheshwaris for Kiran Uttam Ghosh, you see them used in the most innovative and inspiring ways.

While saris might have been the general idea, the drapes and tucks came completely renovated at Anavila‘s Summer Stroll collection.

As Antar Agni and Deepika Govind‘s girls strutted down the runway, our Coachella hearts were on fire as we lusted after unexpected cuts and soft layers. Imagine a bikini top under that gorgeous blue cape!

Shruti Sancheti‘s Nomadistan showed us Indian textiles that moved away from drapes and formed separates in earthy shades. Tie dye, shibori and block prints came on woven khadi and different kinds of silk.
