Here's a glimpse of the runway action from the Gurgaon leg of the ongoing Blenders Pride Fashion Tour, which holds fashion showsacross six Indian cities annually.

Each year, the Blenders Pride Fashion Tour hits a host of Indian cities in a bid to promote the works of leading designers across the country.

And of course, there were a few Bollywood beauties catwalking too. Here's how it all went down!

First up we have the avant garde futuristic stylings of Falguni & Shane Peacock, whose creations were replete with bugle beads, sequins and diamantes.
