Lakme Fashion Week: fun, festive & fashionable!

Hey guys!!!
Finally am back after a lovely break......... :)
A sojourn to Mumbai to attend Lakme Fashion Week with friends was as exciting as it was interesting. I was surrounded by fashion for the 5 days which I spent in the Grand Hyatt, Mumbai (that's the venue of the Fashion Week - spent most of the 5 days there...only went back to friend's place to sleep at night, couldn't afford to spend the night at Hyatt, of course!)
From Day 1, I was mesmerized by the whole ambiance of fashion I could see & feel all around me. The people, the stalls, the garments, the accessories, the decor, the installations, the ramp, the shows, the backstage, the greenrooms, the crew, the media, the socialites, the designers, the buyers - all formed one big world of fashion & style that engulfed all of us for the next 5 days. The 34 shows & 75 designers put forward the A/W '10-'11 fashion trends & style statements which are going to be in for the next season. Page-3 celebs mingled with high profile fashion journalists, talented fashion designers, skilled professionals & us fashion enthusiasts to make it the most stylish event of the country for those 5 days.
