Pria Kataaria Puri's HOT Persian princesses!

Indo-western silhouettes, bright colours and a return to the '80s look marked the designer's latest collection.

On Day Three of the Winter-Festive 2011 edition of Lakme Fashion Week, designer Pria Kataaria Puri showcased her latest collection -- Persian Punk. The collection -- as the name suggested -- sought inspiration from the Persian culture.

It has been a couple of seasons since we saw jumpsuits doing the rounds amongst the audiences at the Lakme Fashion Week. Should Puri have her way, they'd probably make a comeback.
