Mandira launched her own store last year, which has a beautiful collection of saris.

"We have a mix of newcomers and established designers. This season we are infusing magic of color and light with Lakmé Absolute Color Illusion range that spells mystery with stroke of metallic shades. We are planning something big and different for the Finale," Purnima Lamba, Head of Innovations at Lakmé said.

With an aim to celebrate and pay a tribute to Indian textiles and crafts, the Indian Textile Day has been a dedicated feature at LFW.

This season will once again pay tribute to the rich heritage of Indian fabrics. Total 98 designers will present their "best ever" collection at the Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014.

The fashion extravaganza will be held between March 12 and 16.
