Mumbai: New-age designers displayed their unconventionally- styled apparel with a dash of glamour at the Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai.

Models draped in various hues set the ramp on fire with their graceful presentations.

The opening day witnessed an adequate turnout, with most bigwigs of the fashion fraternity hogging the limelight at the show.

Young designer, Tanya Sharma, showcased her collection, which depicted several shades of the hip-hop culture.

Polka dots, netted fabrics and floral prints were a common sight at the event.

"Well, my collection is inspired by men's wear tailored garments. I have used structured styling men's wear garments for women's wear and all the shapes and styling is very simple, very classic, but again the fabrics are contrasting with the hues of Indian tradition textiles," said Sharma.

Meanwhile, budding designer Prashant Chauhan's collection was inspired by a Tibetan novel.

He had beautifully interwoven the culture into his silhouettes.

Chauhan used headgears in his collection, which proved to be visually appealing.

"The inspiration behind is the Tibetan culture, which is inspired by a novel. It is a story about three women who travelled Tibet and how they carry their customs and rituals to the daily life. No, it's just a presentation, just presentation of the garment," he said.

Several other prominent names are expected to present their collection during the five-day fashion week, which concludes on Tuesday.
