  • True in keeping fashion as a form of self-expression, designers at Day 2 and 3 of Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012 took to doodles, the videogame pac-man and medieval pop on the runway!

  • Designer Nikhil Thampi put a brave front on the ramp with his collection titled 'Surviviors'. Constructed in crinkled silk and rich velvet, his outfits bore a rustic facade.

  • Sidharta Aryan's 'Wanderlust' focussed on prints inspired from Indian art and architecture. Look closely and you'll be surprised to see Rajasthani art, temple jewellery of the south, blue prints from the Chalukya dynasty, and even the streets of Lucknow juxtaposed on the fabric!

  • Move over paisleys, enter pac-man. Yogesh Chaudhary's collection 'Miss Pac-in District' was a riot with little pac-man graphics block printed on dresses, kurtas and sarees. What fun!

  • Payal Khandwala's 'Sadhu and the Samurai' mixed east with the far-east. Think flowing robes in burnt orange, crimson, and bronze of the samurais teamed with top-of-the-head buns hair-dos of sadhus. Can we wear it? Not really.

  • We did not like the red bikini top-purple saree-black leggings combo right in the beginning of the show, and most of Komal's other outfits were impractical.

  • Shruti Sancheti's collection 'Thar' was clearly marked for the Indian Textile Day. The show was a tour of the region's trademarks like Shibori, Kutch stitch, herringbone, and buttonhole stitches on handloom cloth, and the drum-beat background only added to the ambience.

  • Now here's something we'd like to try. Deepika Govind's 'Pop Patola' combined colourful ikats with silks and satins. Fun motifs like cars, buses, fruits, flowers, planes and TV sets came to life on blouses, skirts and sari borders.
