For the upcoming five-day fashion extravaganza, Singh, who has a career of 18 years, will present a line inspired by the brand's soon-to-be launched new range from the popular Lakme Absolute collection.

"Lakme Fashion Week is acknowledged to be the pre-eminent fashion event of India. I have watched the growth and evolution of this platform over the years. Every season creates impressive new trends in the world of both fashion and beauty and I am delighted to now associate with a brand like Lakme.

"It has been consistent in introducing cutting-edge innovations and this is elegantly on display on the runway. This dual creativity approach is something I can respond to whole-heartedly and I hope to present an extraordinarily stylish collection at the anticipated grand finale," Singh said in a statement.

Head of Innovation at Lakme, Purnima  amba, is happy to collaborate with the designer.

"It's a great honour to have an internationally acclaimed creative genius like Rajesh Pratap Singh present Lakme's Grand Finale collection at the upcoming LFW SR 2014. His designs and concepts have never failed to enthral the fashion world."
