This is what happens when designers go overboard with 'creative freedom'.
If there were some droolworthy designs modelled at the recently concluded Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015, there were others that were simply crazy, outlandish, cringeworthy.

What did you think of all these outfits? Tell us!
