For their showcase at the FDCI x Lakme Fashion Week, Khadi India presented collections by Mossi, Abhishek Gupta Benares, Anju Modi, Charu Parashar and Rina Dhaka. 

The highlight of the show was Kangana Ranaut in a cream sari, which she teamed with an off-white coat and stunning emerald jewellery.

In an Instagram post, the actress explained why she chose khadi: 'To be truly global, one has to be truly local first. 

'Khadi can be hope for the entire world which is struggling with the pollution from the fashion industry. 

'Millions of tons of synthetic fabric is thrown in the ocean every year and the fashion industry wastes are destroying soil, air and water equally.

'Khadi, an organic and environment-friendly fabric, is the ultimate resolution the world is seeking. Let's guide the world and explore the true genius of Bharat.'
