Big-ticket designers. Exciting shows. Interesting clothes. A-list celebs. The FDCI x Lakme Fashion Week promises to be as big as ever.
Covid restrictions are gone, digital and phygital shows are a thing of the past; this season, it's back to a full in-person format.
Designer Anamika Khanna opened the fashion week last evening at the Dhirubhai Ambani Square, Jio World Garden, Mumbai.
The show marked her menswear debut and featured her pret line, ak-ok.
The designer played around with silhouettes in white -- a marked departure from her traditional ivory palette.

Anamika's choice of fabrics -- cotton, silk and chiffon -- aim to keep one feel comfortable in hot, humid October.
Don't miss the frayed detailing on the white pants.
