Playing to a full house, Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2016's GenNext show started with a bang! Present in the audience was Renzo Rosso, founder of Diesel, who kicked off the show. "Be brave and believe in what you're doing," he advised the young, budding designers.
Peppy, upbeat music set the tone for the show as models poured in, dressed in outfits designed by the GenNext designers. Shades like white, beige, grey and blue dominated the ramp, and the designers kept the outfit simple without heavy detailing and excessive layering.
Scroll down to see some of the looks from the show.
All eyes were on fashion designer Aqdus Saleem's collection, The Modest Chapter. The collection embraced Islamic ethnic wear and contemporary fashion, to create an interesting fusion.
Colours like beige and white ruled the runway.

Designer Agrima Batra put her creativity to great use by using colourful patchwork made out of waste fabric for her outfits.
Simple cuts and flowing dresses dominated the runway along with jumpsuits in black and white.
Here's the designer, waving out cheerfully to the crowd, dressed in one of her creations.

Long jackets, dresses and skirts with seen in plenty.
Naaz kept the collection fun yet wearable. The collection had Middle East wear and it was the designer's attempt at breaking stereotypes through her outfits.
