Don't miss veteran designer Manish Malhotra's grand finale that brought Lakme Fashion Week's Winter/Festive installment to a close!

When it's Manish Malhotra who's showing, you can expect ethnic glamour that will take your breath away.

And the Badshah of Bollywood couture didn't disappoint at the LFW, as kalidaar kurtas, resplendent lehengas and stunning saris sailed onto the runway in a haze of colour, sparkle and sophistication.

Here's how it all went down and to give you a glimpse of what is to come, we start off with some fab whirling ensembles set off to perfection by Kavita Kharayat, Deepti Gujral and Rachel Bayros.
