LFW: Jewels and handbags rule the ramp!

Day Three of Lakme opened with an accessories showing.

Accessory designers Eina Ahluwalia, Malini Agarwalla and Suhani Pittie opened the third day of Lakme Fashion Week with jewellery and handbags galore!

First up was Ahluwalia's 'Wedding Vows' collection of jewels -- bold, defiant pieces that were meant to stand as a message against domestic violence against women. Imposing gold pendants shaped like daggers, knives, trishuls, bows and arrows made a statement.

Seen here is a beautiful set of matching swords -- no messing with this beauty!
