8 times India wowed at the London Fashion Week

February 22, 2017 16:01 IST

Designers like Rocky S and Sidharth Sinha put India on the fashion map with their collections at the fashion week.

Just as the London Fashion Week came to a close, India was declared the winner of 'International Fashion Showcase Country Award.'

Thanks to the effort of five talented designers --- Karishma Shahani Khan, Ujjawal Dubey, Ragini Ahuja, Alan Alexander and Priyanka Ella Lorena Lama -- who created a sustainable fashion exhibition 'the Indian Pastoralists' to win the award.

Indian celebs and designers were in full attendance at the fashion week -- Rocky Star curated a fashion show which turned out to be a huge hit and the Mumbai-based designer was responsible for popularising the 'nude wedding dress' through his collection.  

Presenting a handful of noteworthy moments from the London Fashion Week.

The Mumbai-based designer showcased his collection, Divine Rock at the London Fashion Week. 
Moving away from traditional wedding gowns, Rocky's creation was a combination of sheer and textured lace work, detailed embroidery and a matching sheer train. One of the favourites from his collection was the nude wedding dress, which was a rage online.
