Here's what designer Drashta Sarvaiya had to offer on Day Two of Lakme Fashion Week. Photographs: Rajesh Karkera

Designer Drashta Sarvaiya explored two themes in her line, showcased today at Lakme Fashion Week -- one was peplums, which are the 'in' thing in the fashion world at the moment. And the other was the the work of symbolist painter Gustav Klimt, particularly his nudes.

Both the above are explored in beautifully draped dresses, ranging from nude and white to the bright floral hues and motifs Klimt infused his nature-inspired artwork with. Take a look.

First up we see a rich yellow layered number, twirling dramatically on the runway.
