Sabyasachi's romantic take on Indo-Pak partition
Sabyasachi packed the house with the largest audience yet at the Lakme Fashion Week.

"My inspiration," he says, "is a romantic look at the Indian-Pakistan Partition."

"As India's economy booms and pride in our nation surges, Indian fashion is looking inwards. Instead of mimicking Western traditions, we must look into our own past and grapple with our identity," he continued.

With qawwali wailing forth from the overhead speakers, models stalked the runways in breathtaking Indian formal wear.

Fascinating cuts, breathtaking Indian silhouettes and dynamic use of colours and fabrics defined the transcendant collection.

This gorgeous silk georgette sari was to die for with it glittering detail all over the body and contrasting red shimmer border.
