I’m most excited about this one. N&S GAIA, which will commence at 17:30 is the catwalk show of Delhi based designer Siddharth Sinha. The label is famous for contributing to the lost art and re-birth of craft ‘DAKMANDA’ a hand weaving embroidery technique of North-East India.

On the fourth day of LFW is another promising catwalk show, FAD Fashion Futures that offers an opportunity to young people to get ahead in their creative careers. The FAD future finalists are the youngest designers to show at LFW, aged between 16-18.
