Mexican model Edna Abigail lets us into the madness and calm at Lakme Fashion Week.
Behind the glitz and glamour and the success of a fashion week is a bunch of crazy, committed people who ensure everything falls in place.
Mexican model Edna Abigail turned photographer for a day and gave us insights into the other side of the world from her eyes.
