Lakme Fashion Week Brings Beauty to Bombay

Twice a year, in the frantic and fashionable city of Bombay, Lakme Fashion Week showcases collections by some of the country's most respected and sought after designers alongside fresh, emerging young talent.

Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2012 kicked off on Friday with the highly anticipated Gen Next show, which debuted original creations by seven promising young designers.

Though the coming days will witness exquisite shows from internationally lauded Indian designers like Bibhu Mohapatra and Rohit Bal, LFW will also feature new design talent with a number of smaller shows.

It's been a whirlwind of fashion and style in New York, London, Milan and now Paris but there's no need for fashion week fatigue just yet -- Bombay deserves its due.
