Lakme Fashion Week: From Gandhi to Modi, an ode to khadi

Last updated on: August 18, 2017 14:02 IST

Celebrating 100 years of Satyagraha, this show took the audience on a nostalgic trip. 

Imagine this...melodious live folk music playing in the background as artisans spin the charkha and weave on the loom.

This was the mood that prevailed during a show that paid tribute to khadi.

The silhouettes were simple yet had a timeless appeal.



Cropped tops with tassel detail were some of the interesting ensembles showcased at the show.

Accessories like duffel bags and stylish turbans created the perfect rustic look.
