MUMBAI, India — Lakmé Fashion Week closed here with not one, but two collections showing simultaneously to emphasize the event’s focus on young designers.
It was a new twist on the week, which usually has been closed with a show by an established designer. This season the finale was of collections by Kallol Datta and the husband and wife duo Pankaj & Nidhi. Bollywood star Kareena Kapoor showcased an outfit for each of the designers, which generated intense media interest for the event.
