Lakme Fashion Week is almost here! If you need to know what the hottest trends will be this fall, then you want to be at the Grand Hyatt, Mumbai on March 27-31st. The event will not only showcase what the hottest trends for the fall will be, but will also celebrate the last tenyears of Indian fashion! Lakme and co-sponsor, IMG Fashion, have announced the sponsors and designers to be featured.
Some familiar names will be sponsoring the big event, such as Levi's, SkodaAuto, Westside, and DHL - these companies have been sponsors for several years now. There are also some new names collaborating to sponsor Fashion Week. Carlsberg, Grey Goose, Marie Claire, and Barbie are just a few of the added sponsors.
Lakme Fashion Week should prove to be a great mix of both old and new designers. Eigh
t up-and-coming young designers will see their creations walk the runway for a segment titled GenNext. Along with the unknowns will be eight emerging designers and 48 established designers. And the star of the show is veteran designer Anamika Khanna. The legendary designer will be making her comeback in the "Lakme Grand Finale."

Aside from the 65 designers, which will be showcased on the actual ramp, 73 artists will be presented in a collection at "The Source" - a marquee area which will feature various designers from all over the world, including India, Australia, Canada, Netherlands, Switzerland, and multiple South East Asian countries. Lakme will also be bringing back Menswear Day and the Group Accessory Designer show with four designers, which were both a huge hit with gue
