Designer Amit Aggarwal presented an ethereal, vibrant ensemble for the showcase.

“The collection ‘If flowers had fins’ is inspired by fantasy,” said Aggarwal, Lakmé Fashion Week reported. “The intricacies were designed keeping in mind a beautiful blooming flower, however, it was later morphed with the idea of fish fins, blurring the lines of reality. The fluidity of the fins and the framework of the flower is extended beyond the silhouette of the human body.”

Aggarwal’s look is an extension of his wider couture collection which, “promises a new beginning through these unprecedented times,” according to the designer.  
Ridhi Mehra presented a fluid, turmeric yellow look for the digital event.

“The look is inspired by the royal heritage of Kutch,” she said. “It embodies timeless elegance, crafted with dexterity and boasting the essence of the elements of the Bandhani art form from Gujarat.”
Design duo Abraham and Thakore’s offering was paired down but intricately constructed.

“The look is inspired from the Sikkimese Baku wrap dress and skirts which allow the wearer to wrap it to the way they prefer either front or back with the freedom to wear it looser or fitted,” said the designers. 
The looks were revealed across Lakmé Fashion Week's social media platforms including Facebook. The looks are also ready to purchase and shoppers can message the brands on Instagram to purchase the looks. The showcase will also feature looks by brands including Kanika Goyal Label and Huemn.
