Inspired by the movie Shootout at Wadala, Rajat K Tangri's showing at the LFW brought alive the theme of the movie with dark vintage glamour. Photographs: Uttam Ghosh

On the fifth and final day of Lakme Fashion Week, designer Rajat K Tangri presented a line borrowing from '50s silver screen avatars of mobsters and their molls.

Tangri said he was inspired by the gangster movie Shootout at Wadala; glitzy eveningwear for the women and sharp tailored looks for the men took centrestage, as the models channelled gangsters and glamazons.

To know just what we mean, take a look at the dramatic striped sequin gown above, sporting a cowl neck and matching plunging back.
