    Veteran designer Krishna Mehta showcased her collection on Day 3 of Lakme Fashion Week. The line that wafted from blacks to whites and then eventually reds was one of the most interesting lines of the day.

    Someone in the Godrej Interio marketing team -- the company that sponsored Anita Dongre's show -- decided that it would be a good idea to create 3D special effects on the ramp.

    So you had Dipannita Sharma walking down, well walking up actually, from the camerapersons' pit towards the middle of the ramp and pausing in the middle as the SFX team that Godrej had hired projected some of their sofas on the screens and Sharma pretended (with some difficulty) to be surprised.

    Moving on to the show, Dongre's Waves of Joy consisted of sensuous, elegant gowns and maxi dresses, comfortable jackets, fluid palazzos and delicate lacy blouses that gave the collection a feminine touch.

    Models in gorgeous swirling long gowns with trellised yokes in pretty pastels glide down the ramp.
