Inspired by "the spiritual presence of the Almighty", Debarun Mukherjee showcased a collection of serene style called 'Omnipresent' at Lakme Fashion Week today, which opened with a graceful dance performance by renowned Manipuri dancer, Rinku Dutt.

Taking a cue from the famous iznik tiles of Turkey, all the garments were blue as a constant, with base tones of beige and black; fusion silhouettes tailored to the the festive and bridal season included layered dhoti skirts, Mandarin collar tops, elegant pleated pants and luxurious saris.

And while actress Richa Chadda of Gangs of Wasseypur closed the show, first on the ramp was her namesake, playback singer Richa Sharma, in a printed layered ghagra, high-collar top and double-layered inner.
