It was a riot of colour that designer duo Mayank Anand and Shraddha Nigam showcased on Day Three of the LFW.

Presenting their new pret label Kapurthala at Lakme Fashion Week, Mayank Anand and Shraddha Nigam paid tribute to the colours of Punjab with their latest collection 'Technicolour'.

Shocking pinks, orange, chrome, yellow, orchid, royal blue, turquoise and lime gave lehengas, tops, cholis, dhotis, saris, and tunics a versatile touch; in fact, one particular woven number included a staggering 2,116 colours, while the fabrics used included Kota Doria, Champa, Tussore, Kashmiri and Bangalore silks.

Seen here is Sanea Shaikh in a lovely lime and fuschia-dominated skirt and choli.
