Here's what Amalraj Sengupta showcased at Lakme Fashion Week on Day Four.

Using a black and white palette, designer Amalraj Sengupta brought to life his collection 'In the Game of Chess' on the LFW ramp today.

Flaps, layers, pleats, pin tucks for both the men and women's garments created a kind of futuristic feel, while the fabrics -- cotton, linen, silk, organza, satin and chiffon -- were hand-picked for summer.

We start off with this backless number sporting a unique backless cut.
