Day One, show number two. Heavy-weight designers Asmita Marwa and Narendra Kumar show their collections. Photographs by Hitesh Harisinghani.

Barely hours after young designers made their Lakme Fashion Week debut as part of the Gen Next show, Asmita Marwa and Narendra Kumar showed their collections surprisingly early on in the week setting the bar really high for the designers to follow.

While Marwa sought inspiration from the gypsy woman, Kumar chose to make a statement against the establishment with his collection.

Snapshots from two vastly different collections by two of India's finest designers by Hitesh Harisinghani.

Always the one to make a statement with his collection, Narendra Kumar took on the establishment that seeks to curb freedom and thought though his collection, rather aptly titled, The Thought Police.

Male models sporting Nazi-like military outfits stood around the ramp as models walked amidst this barricade of sorts.
