The curtain came down in style on the fifth and final day of the LFW with showings by Kallol Datta and Pankaj & Nidhi and B-Town glamour courtesy Lakme brand ambassador Kareena Kapoor.

The creations from both labels were inspired by sponsor Lakme's latest Absolute Monochrome makeup line, a a collection of edgy, glam products that take up on the current colour-blocking trend, created in association with makeup expert Clint Fernandes.

To start things off, models showcased these latest offerings for eyes, lips and nails from Lakme clad in black jumpsuits.

The makeup presentation was followed by Kallol Datta's latest line called 'Cuts' from his label 1955, which featured four different signature prints -- faces, snails, mating and abstract safety pins.

Inspired by the black and white of the Lakme Absolute Monochrome range, the mix-and-match garments included voluminous skirts, slashed sleeves, long gowns with fabric tassels, giant choirboy collars with fabric edges, and tops with unbalanced tie-ups.

Duo Pankaj and Nidhi's line 'Monochrome', named after Lakme's makeup range, was a contemporary play of kaleidoscopic patterns.

The garments featured geometrics and origami with rich textures and diverse fabrics; interestingly, all were shown on black bodysuits.

Seen here is Deepti Gujral in a lovely poncho, worn over an asymmetric skirt.
