The 19th edition of Gen Next designers opened Day One at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015 with a show mentored by designer Anita Dongre. And for the first time ever, a Nigerian model, Ugochi Latoya Igwilo, will be part of the 5-day extravaganza. Here she walks the ramp for designer Alan Alexander Kaleekal.

Kaleekal's collection used a colour story of ecru and black and featured sheer/solid tie-up dress, cotton boxy tunic, cut-away overall with cropped top and a rear back tie-up tunic with shorts.

Using glass nylon, polyester satin, denim and Lycra in shades of white, beige and lilac, the designer showed a line that had a clever mix of the textures.

The imaginative use of shattered glass print gave the collection an innovative touch.
