Fantasy comes alive at Chaitanya Rao show
Chaitanya Rao's spring-summer line, inspired by the fictional worlds of Neil Gaiman's "Neverwhere" turned Lakme Fashion Show in a decidedly different direction on day three.

"I admire those international designers who ground their work in fantasy. It's some beautiful, brilliant stuff," he told at the post-show press conference.

"But I've stayed in reality, while still experimenting. It's all very wearable, very affordable."

This opening number, a neutral orangza gown in white and cream, shows Chaitanya's commitment to layering and the use of multiple textures and materials.
