Called 'Encore', Krishna Mehta's line showcased on Day Three of the LFW was the very epitome of Winter/Festive. Photographs: Rajesh Karkera

Expert craftsmanship, arts, and textiles came to the fore at designer Krishna Mehta's showing at Lakme Fashion Week.

Clean, elegant silhouettes sailed onto the runway, created from specially handwoven fabrics cleverly textured with dyeing or Shibori and stitching details.

Soft, feminine tones like peach, ecru and salmon with traces of purple, red, black and royal blue brought out the best in dresses, tunics, lehengas and ornate dupattas. Take a look.

An overall glimpse of 'Encore' was offered right at the start of the show, with models lining up in the beautiful ethnicwear.
