As part of their ongoing attempt to revive ancient handlooms and to change notions about them, Lakmé Fashion Week dedicates an entire day to Indian handlooms and textiles each season. And while we are super excited about the clothes, we also equally abide by the philosophy behind the whole affairto wear, conventionalise and endorse Indian fabrics and handlooms! This is precisely why we bring you a host of options to dress up in this Indian Textile Day, LFW 2015.
