Mumbai, Aug 24 (IANS) Designers Shilpa Chavan, better known as Little Shilpa, and Sougat Paul showcased accessories and ensembles with a new age touch at the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Winter/Festive 2013 here Saturday.

Popular for her out-of-the-box accessories, Little Shilpa wowed the fashion-conscious audience with her creativity. She used unconventional materials to showcase a range of beautiful head and neck accessories, which had a futuristic sensibility.

Also, Little Shilpa turned her attention to the sari and the katori choli, a new style of blouse, with her collection Grey Matter. Silk saris draped in quirky styles and worn with men's shirts, t-shirts or a katori choli-cum-shirt was the highpoint of the range.

Sougat Paul's Morocco-inspired collection also made an impression on the runway.

Inspired by Zellige, a terracotta tile formation found in Moroccan architecture, Paul presented a line titled Decoding Zellige under his label Soup. The collection redefined geometric forms and shapes in the women's wear range. Also, detailing played an important role to add a trendy touch to classic silhouettes.

Designer Anushka Khanna also presented an artistic collection here.

Her theme revolved around photographer Hashim Badami's images. The well-known photographer's pictures brought a refined look to designer's prints and surface textures.

There was shimmer and shine for the line of cocktail wear, which opened with a long navy sweater dress, followed by a strappy mini with hot pants, and a layered maxi tube. There were also short cropped tops and long pencil skirts which gave the line a sexy yet sophisticated touch.

LFW, a five-day fashion extravaganza kicked off here Friday at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.
