LFW: Learning the alphabet on the catwalk!

Presenting a glimpse of designer duo Aparna and Norden Wangdi at the LFW.

Day Three of Lakme saw Aparna and Norden Wangdi debut their new line 'The New Tower of Babel'.

Alphabets in different languages were used as motifs for embroidery, digital prints and patchwork detailing -- Japanese, Chinese, English and Sanskrit symbols were used on asymmetrical and draped silhouettes in resham, prints or sequins, while the colour palette ranged from white, navy and grey to red, pink and cobalt blue.

Seen here is a red number with Japanese script in black along the layers.
