The doors of the Palladium Hotel, Mumbai, are shut, keeping the world behind them a secret. If we were to peek into the world behind the doors, we would findmadness, mayhem, glamour, excitement andstyle wrapped together to form one of the most misunderstood paradoxes—organized chaos, also known as the backstage of one of the most glamourous events in the country— the  Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015. People flit about, from fixing green rooms for designers to ensuring all the refreshments are in order and when it’s time, the doors are opened, and a red carpet rolls out to meet the style divas and aces that we see often see on our screens—B-Town folk and socialites. Fashion weeks are a whole lot of fun; not only do you get the first looks of how the designer unfolds his/her new creations, but you also get to see how the Bollywood folk are treating fashion, and how they receive the new trends. Moreover, you also get to watch stars from the silver screen walking the ramp, sporting what the designer feels is the most important design of his collection and the celeb power at this Lakmé Fashion Week was definitely quite dramatic! Runway Renegades Now, actors or actresses walking the ramp for designers isn’t unheard of, and therefore we weren’t surprised when we saw quite a few known faces taking the ramp by storm for very well known designers.
