The humble Indian sari had a strong presence at this season's Lakme Fashion Week. But how many of these designs did you really like?

So it seems like the sari has made a comeback like never before.

Sure, the Indian drape has had its share of being in the limelight off and on during various seasons earlier but never before has the Indian sari been seen to prominently on the runway as it was this season.

Here, we bring you the designs that caught our eye.

And we are asking you, our dear readers, to tell us what you think of these designs!
