Day One of Lakme Fashion Week saw designer duo Shyamal and Bhumika showcase a collection inspired by ancient India -- saris, lehengas, sherwanis and kamarbandhs ruled the ramp. Rose, jet black, plush purple and chocolate brown were strikingly juxtaposed against each other.

Luxurious and opulent, here's a glimpse of the most striking emsembles.

We start off with this beautiful earthy sari, its ethnic pattern and burnished gold embellishment dominating its overall appeal.
