Sheetal Mallar & Rohit Bal's bow, a memorable LFW Finale
Mar '12
It was a Grand Finale that an audience can only dream of and hope it turns into a reality. The invitees walked down the garden path of the Grand Hyatt lined with sweet smelling mogras and hundreds of candles, through fragrant flowers and trees, onto the venue to witness one of the most glamorous events of the year.

The Grand Finale presented by Rohit Bal, designer par excellence and the ultimate Master of Craft and Creative Design, was a mind blowing collection inspired by Lakmé Absolute Fast & Fabulous woman to end the Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2012.

The only words that can summarize the event were magnificent, opulent, glamour, design and absolute beauty. Akin to Rohit Bal's inimitable style, Lakmé for the first time hosted the Grand Finale at the lawns of the Grand Hyatt. Pristine ivory pillars served as a backdrop for stunning models that walked down the ramp in mesmerizing creations in a selection of elegant fabrics, colours and silhouettes. Five carved white cones lined the ramp while numerous hung from the branches of the trees surrounding the lawns.

Lakmé has constantly evolved to keep pace with the ever changing Indian woman and presented to her an everlasting beauty experience through a unique collection of colour cosmetics. True to its legacy, Lakmé launched its Fast & Fabulous collection of 30 fashion forward nail colours that speed dry in 40 seconds. With the exciting range of wicked colours and vivid tones women can now choose to refresh their nails daily to match their mood, occasion or their outfit.

The Fast & Fabulous nail paints come with a unique flat brush that glides effortlessly over the nails and gives an immaculate finish in one stroke.

The show opened with Silver Strings - a spirited trio of beautiful ladies, who enthralled the audience with their virtuosity on the violins. As the lights came on, the five cones rose to reveal statuesque models in diaphanous creations, while the melodious music of the live orchestra above the stage provided haunting melodies during the show.

The collection called “Kaarigari” featured the classic cuts and intricate designs by Rohit Bal that represented the modern Indian woman who stands true to her roots yet lives an international lifestyle and looks glamorous every day.
