Mumbai, Mar 8 (ANI): Model-turned-designer Vijay Balhara showcased his collection at the Lakme India Fashion Week (LIFW) in Mumbai.
Top line models, including Carol Gracias set the ramp on fire with their impeccable catwalk as they showcased the collection titled Borala Nautch.
The fabric used in the collection was cotton and the centuries old rural Indian block print motifs and silhouettes were presented in the most contemporary way.
"The inspiration behind the collection is combination of very diverse cultures, - one is the Rural Chick as I call it, which is the clothing of a village woman. The second part which is Nautch is inspired from the nautch girl, which was the culture of very young pretty girls performing dance styles dressed up in Indian wear," said Balhara.
Lakme India Fashion Week (LIFW), organised twice annually, is being held from March 5-9 and will involve events like media seminars, business-to-business meetings and a buyers' forum, apart from the regular fashion shows.
The event will also provide a platform for fresh designers who possess the talent through the Gen Next shows.
Around 64 designers would showcase their collections in this season. (ANI)
