Talking of her collection, the designer said, 'Women can be gentle but also vulnerable.

'No one should take advantage of that, a woman can wear what she wants, do what she wants and be who she wants. At the end of it all, you are still a soul, a human and a person.'

'The collection is soft, beautiful and romantic, but at the same time strong and powerful,' added Kalki, who worked the ramp in a layered floral dress with a gold bodice.

'Consent is Everything. Women deserve equal treatment.

'I have been supporting the #MeToo campaign since last year and it's very brave for women who have come out and spoken,' said Kalki.

'From my personal experience of being a public figure, I know how difficult it is to come out and I am proud of these women.

'The important thing is to see how long term changes are made in every sector, the corporate one, the film industry and how legally we can help somebody who has gone through sexual harassment, I think that is really important.'

Also walking the ramp at the fashion week was Sushmita Sen.
