Here's a look at Babita M's line, showcased on the second day of Lakme Fashion Week. Photographs: Rajesh Karkera

Inspired by nomads, free spirits and the colours of Africa, designer Babita M showcased an earthy but vibrant collection called 'Urbane Nomad-ism' at the LFW.

Free-flowing silhouettes and a luxe-meets-boho vibe defined the garments, crafted from fabrics like the silks of Habutai, crepes, georgettes and silk wools. High-low dresses, maxis, throws, contemporary fusion wear and sari draperies were among the offerings.

Seen here is a cut-out tie-dye maxi, set off with tribal accessories.
