India's pioneer lingerie designer Suman Nathwani presented her debut collection on Day Two of the fashion week.

Whoever thought that India has a serious dearth of lingerie designers hasn't probably heard of Suman Nathwani.

Better known among the fashion circuit as the 'pioneer of lingerie designing in India', Nathwani who has been in the business since two decades now, showcased her first ever collection on Day Two of the Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai.

Titled 'Garden of Eden', the scintillating line of innerwear, sleepwear and resort wear saw a melange of summer colours that naturally lit up the stage.
