We bring you ten colourful looks off the Lakme Fashion Week ramp that gel with the Festival of Colours!

The LFW, which concluded on Wednesday, saw a riot of colour and festive outfits on the catwalk. Here's a look at designerwear with that added Holi inspiration!

We start off with this gorgeous drape from Satya Paul's Puneet Nanda -- every colour of the rainbow seems to be worked into it and it's carried off to perfection by model Kavita Kharayat.
