Take a look at designer Vaishali S' collection, showcased on Day Four at Lakme.

Dolls, boats, paper planes and balls.

Vaishali S drew on pleasant memories from her childhood to create her line 'Virus Free' for spring/summer 2011.

With Chanderi as her base fabric, the designer wove wonderful garments using draping, folding and fabric stitching that reminded her of a few of her favourite childhood things.

Here, Kavita Kharayat shows off a chic kurta and relaxed pocketed pants.
