We bring you a preview of what you can expect at the Blenders Pride Fashion Tour.

Each year, the Blenders Pride Fashion Tour travels across major cities in India to showcase the works of some of the country's best-known fashion designers.

Spanning across September through November, the tour will go through Kolkata, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Gurgaon.

At a press conference held in Mumbai, we got a sneak peek into just what we can expect from the tour in the months to come.

Hot off the New York Fashion Week runway, Falguni and Shane Peacock are set to show their latest line at the Blenders Pride Fashion Tour that seems to be inspired by the rose. Here they are with their muse Sameera Reddy in an outfit from their collection.
