Yes, it’s true, it was Sushmita Sen who had us drooling over her at Lakmé Fashion Week. While she was totally stunning, even Rajkummar Rao‘s ramp walk made an impact on us. But the best part of day 2 ofLFW was the essence of the day itself, as it is dedicated to sustainable fashion. 5 Days Of Fashion are incomplete without it.

Designers are experimenting with the concept of sustainable fashion and making sure #KhadiGoesChic. They are on a mission to change our perception of this by transforming traditional handloom textiles and presenting them in a new avatar.

Here are the collections that did justice to the concept of #Day2 of Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2018:

Khadi And Village Industries Commission (KVIC) Show

Khadi and Village Industries Commission presents Lars Andersson, Buna, The Third Floor Clothing and Jewellyn Alvares was the show that kick-started the day. The display created a pleasant, cosy ambience that’s perfect to warm up during winter. The effortless dresses, comfy separates and breathable fabrics made sure that the theme #KhadiGoesChic came through.

Silk has a prestigious place in the textile world and Sunita Shanker in collaboration with RmKV Silks celebrated its elegance at LFW. The memorable moment of the show had to be when Sushmita Sen walked the ramp like a regal queen. She wore a red jumpsuit with a dhup-chav dupatta that was cinched at the waist, which made a unique statement.

Tencel™ Presents Rajesh Pratap Singh’s #PlanetPositive

From psychedelic prints being projected on a wall to animal prints getting a new canvas on shoes, Rajesh Pratap Singh‘s #PlanetPositive collection was presented by Tencel™ at LFW. Experimenting with the new textile, Singh had an array of silhouettes in both womenswear and menswear to offer. We love the way the collection escalated from the white palette to intense winter hues. Also, Rajkummar Rao was the cool and calm showstopper, who looked amazing in an all-white ensemble. He opened and closed the show with his suave walk and charming persona.
