Ritu Kumar showcased a sustainable, environment friendly spring collection at the fashion week.

From upcycled marine plastic to leather-free textiles, the FDCI x Lakme Fashion Week has really pushed the envelope when it comes to experimentation.

Themed Mismatched, her collection boasted of eco-friendly fabrics and dyes. But it was Ritu's soya fabric saris that stole the limelight.
