We bring you a round-up of showings by Babita M, Drashta and Rehane!

The second half of Day Four at Lakme continued in a glamorous vein, with plenty of feminine styles to appreciate. Here we bring you the best of Babita M, Drashta and Rehane.

We kick off with the cocktail collection by Drashta Sarvaiya, which was nothing if not colourful and vibrant, besides rating very highly on the wearability scale. Seen here is beautiful peach number with the model giving it a Marilyn Monroe-esque twirl.

Chennai-based Rehane chose to debut an all-white line at the LFW, intended to embody the purity of woman. Created from raw mulmul and kora fabrics, the 'Meera' collection consisted of garments that were unfinished and in their 'trial' form, with chalk markings and tailors' alteration notes scribbled on them.

Seen here is a pair of shorts and a pleated blouson.
