Presented on Day Four of Lakme Fashion Week, Swapnil Shinde's collection was inspired by Indian horror films of the 50's and early 60's. Photographs: Rajesh Karkera

Swapnil Shinde presented an ultra-mod line of garments called 'Frozen Fragility' at the LFW yesterday.

To the strains of haunting music and an eerie display of laser lights, the show opened with three draped gowns in red, black and white with wired wing-like shapes to depict the flying pallav of the heroine in a Bollywood horror movie.

Cinched waistlines, voluminous skirts, exaggerated sleeves and prominent shoulders defined the designs, created a space-age feel on the ramp -- take a look.
