India's best-known swim and cruise wear designers Shivan and Narresh showcased their collection on Day Five of Lakme Fashion Week.

The work of the French artist, Henri Rousseau and his visuals of visits to botanical gardens on canvas was the source of inspiration for Shivan and Narresh's latest line.
