Lakme Fashion Week, in partnership with FDCI, witnessed Diksha Khanna and the Nirmooha label by Prreeti Jaiin Nainutia take center stage in a captivating display of creativity and innovation. Showcasing a fusion of cosmopolitan chic and vibrant individuality, the collection redefined contemporary fashion for a discerning audience.


The Fluid 2024 collection called “Asymmetrical Precision” by Diksha Khanna exuded a tranquil appeal, keeping in mind the bustling urban life. The designer evoked a sense of Zen-like peace with her ensembles. There was rugged denim that represented city life, while the fine handloom Chanderi whispered gently of distant, peaceful mountains. Drawing further inspiration for her collection, Diksha turned her focus on the old monasteries and interpreted them as dome-shaped hand-appliquéd borders, which were the highlight of the apparel.

Diksha played with drawstrings as detailing that helped to create unexpected looks. The colors were a subdued choice, as ivory and shades of indigo and grey, along with pops of ox blood and bark brown, completed the story. Giving her silhouettes a quick variety of options, An eye-catching ivory pant sari kept the mood of the show on a high beat in the beginning and set the pace for more excitement. 

Diksha Khanna’s Fluid 2024 collection, ‘Asymmetrical Precision’, was a clever and creative study in finding harmony in co-existence as well as making a style statement for the coming season. Shehnaaz Gill made a perky entry to end the show in a baggy, drop-crotch, zippered, multi-denim jumpsuit under an oversized matching jacket with drawstring detailing on the sleeves.

“I loved presenting ‘Asymmetrical Precision’ – our Fluid 24 collection – at the Lakmē Fashion Week in partnership with FDCI. This season, we took you to a world of harmonious contradictions, where tranquil fluidity meets urban chic. Handwoven textiles whisper enchanting tales of distant mountains, while our signature distressed denim lends edgy sophistication. The cultural richness of age-old Bhutanese monasteries was reimagined through delicate dome-shaped appliqué on urban hoodie jackets, perfect for a day in the city. Silhouettes unexpectedly transform with playful drawstrings, particularly in our show-opener. Ripple Pant Sari, with a color palette ranging from soothing ivory to rich indigos and greys, punctuated by striking pops of oxblood and bark brown, you’ll rediscover your Zen in the midst of the urban paradise,” designer Diksha Khanna shared.

The ‘Nirmooha’ label by designer Prreeti Jaiin Nainutia has always amazed us with a fun-filled offering each season, and this time at Lakme Fashion Week in partnership with FDCI, Nirmooha presented a great look for men and women called ‘Ekatra’. The title of the collection had a very deep, philosophical meaning that described the collection in a subtle manner. The show was opened by actor Abhimanyu Dasani, who rocked down the ramp in a royal, purple, shimmering jacket, over laced kurta shirt, and comfy trousers to set the mood of the presentation. 

The ‘Ekatra’ collection by Prreeti Jaiin Nainutia for her label Nirmooha was all about creating a great summer wardrobe that will be ideal for holidaying and globe trotting right through the coming season for trendsetting men and women. Aditi Rao Hydari dazzled her way down the runway in a trio, comprising flared cocktail pants, a tiny blouse, and a floor-sweeping cape – all heavily embellished with abstract motifs.

The fabrics selected by Prreeti were thoughtful yet glamorous, as chiffon lurex, glass organza, and shimmer georgette moved gracefully to Chantilly, modal satin, crepe, and georgette, and then ended with organza and tulle. The colors were the mainstay of the ‘Ekatra’ collection, as rust, savana, and peach fuzz came in unison with cool matcha, sustained grey, and deep plum. 

“Nirmooha showcased the ‘Ekatra’ collection this season at Lakmē Fashion Week in partnership with FDCI. It was inspired by the abstract elements in nature, like leaf patterns, prints and motifs. We have come up with a very interesting prints that have a bunch of leaves and asymmetric patterns in them. Our colour palette has sustained grey savannah, peach fuzz, and intense rust; these are the colours of the season. We have come up with a very interesting signature embroidery. We always do abstract 3D embellishments, and this time we have added some big stones to it, which gives it a very luxurious look. The fabrics used in the collection are very light and have a natural flow to them, like glass organza, georgette, chiffon, lurex fabric, and linen. As always, we are very grateful to the Lakmē Fashion Week x FDCI team. They are very supportive in a way; they make it very easy for us to showcase. From the day of the show allotment, the fittings, the backstage, to the show happening, we are very thankful to them.” designer Prreeti Jaiin Nainutia shared.
