From hot little cocktail numbers to elegant ethnic ensembles, Nandita Thirani's latest collection, designed together with her daughter Anuradha, had something for everyone. Photographs: Uttam Ghosh

Inspired by the "simplicity and elegance" of the lotus flower, which "makes it one of the best examples of divine ideation", mother-daughter designer duo Nandita and Anuradha Thirani collaborated together on a line for the very first time and showcased it on Day One of Lakme Fashion Week.

An appropriate mix of young and classic outfits, which carried both the motifs and colours of the lotus mixed in with black, white and nude tones, were seen on the ramp.

Here, Nethra Raghuraman shines in a bling-thing skirt and multi-panelled jacket.
