Here's what veteran designer Wendell Rodricks had to offer at the closing show of Lakme Fashion Week's second day. Photographs: Uttam Ghosh

Long dresses, georgette circle dupattas, satin silk long line cholis, kurtas and high-waisted dhotis cascaded down the runway as part of Wendell Rodricks' 'Timeless' collection on Day Two of the LFW.

The fluid garments retained the designer's free-spirited signature look, but in a departure from his usual offerings, had a distinctly Indian feel to them, something he described as "difficult" because of the "unusual styling".

Seen here is a wispy colour-block two-layered sari.
