We bring you a round-up of showings by Shyamal and Bhumika, Vizyon and more!

The second half of Day Three at Lakme has seen a few famous faces on the ramp, so love it or hate it, here come the celebrity showstoppers! And of course, we bring you the most eye-catching designs by Payal Kothari, Paromita Banerjee, Vizyon, Debarun and Shyamal and Bhumika.

We commence with the Vizyon 'Golden Age' collection by Shradha Murarka and Ninon Palisse, the inspiration for which was the beauty of Art Deco jewellery, architecture and the paintings of Tamara de Lempicka. Seen here is a red steeply incut red satin dress.
