It was the most eagerly awaited event which ended the vibrant and busy Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2011 season. The Grand Finale show featuring designers Gauri and Nainika renowned for their stunning creations was presented by Lakmé at a tarry elegant extravagant evening.

The Ballroom of the Grand Hyatt Hotel was turned into a veritable Fantasyland as it came alive with butterflies and birds cutous suspended from the ceiling. The backdrop of trees and snaking vines around the arched entry of the ramp along with the throbbing strobe lights set the scee for the fantastic show.

To the strains of the ABBA classic “I have a Dream”, Amrit Maghera descended from the ceiling reclining on a sliver of a new moon to open the opulent fashion presentation.

Gauri and Nainika the designing duo known for their glamorous Red Carpet collections dazzled the audience with 31 creations insired by the colour cosmetic line Fantasy by Lakmé.

With stunning eye-catching creations and selection of elegant fabrics, colours, construction and silhouettes, the creative pair showed a breathtaking line of gorgeous evening wear with form fitting bodices that reflected the many moods f a woman. Unbelievable metres of diaphanous tulle, silk and French lace moulded with horse hair and can-can gave the outfits a surreal look.

The five looks from the Fantasy collection by Lakmé which were created to flatter the beauty of women for the Summer/Resort 2011 season, started with the Sugar Plum Fairy in shades of pink, followed by the Snow Queen in rainbow hues, The Cloud Princess surrounded by blues and greens, The Wandering Butterfly who is nature's child and finally Goddess of Gold surrounded by gold as she shimmers and shines.

Megan and Carol - the dancers on stilts - thrilled the audience at the beginning, middle and end of the show with energetic numbers and ended with a performance of Swan Lake performed on the stilts that evoke a thunderous applause from the audience.
