Designer Santosh Parekh of Tulsi Silks showcased an exquisite line of kanjivarams at Lakme Fashion Week.

In line with the #IWearHandloom campaign started by Smriti Irani, Parekh's collection brought to the fore the rich tradition of silks from India's southern states.

Take a look.

IMAGE: Chequered creations like these were there too.
