Take a look at Abhishek Dutta's latest line, presented on the fourth day of Lakme Fashion Week. Photographs: Uttam Ghosh

Known for his use of unconventional fabrics and futuristic silhouettes, designer Abhishek Dutta's showing latest creations generated quite a buzz at the LFW today.

The line is called 'Tangram', after an ancient Chinese dissection puzzle of the same name, which consists of seven flat shapes that are put together to form new patterns; the word 'tangram' itself is an obsolete English term meaning puzzle or trinket.

The garments fused both Western and Indian influences and the models wore metallic anti-pollution masks to indicate Dutta's 'No Pollution' message against modern-day life.

Seen here is model Diva Dhawan in a strategically-embellished dress with sheer bodice and flouncing skirt.
