Nitin Bal Chauhan’s collection, The Outsider, offers unusual off-centre design detailing that was eye catching. “It doesn’t get bigger in this country than Lakmé Fashion Week X FDCI. So, we wanted to bring in our best elements to surprise the audience so that it doesn’t get dull and boring,” says Nitin.

Versace’s latest outing just prior to Oscars in Los Angeles, had a model don a fuscia dress with self patterned jacket, accessorised with footwear and bag in same hue.
