Ace designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee explored the magic of power dressing of the 1970s era in his new Resort 2015 line ‘Big Love’, setting the stage for a grand 15th year celebration of the Lakmé Fashion Week (LFW) Summer/Resort 2015 on Tuesday night in Mumbai.

With high-tech multi laser lights, roving drones, 62 models and 105 outfits at the rustic grounds of Richardson and Cruddas Mills, Mukherjee opened the celebrations with a spectacular show, attended by Bollywood stars like Deepika Padukone, Farhan Akhtar, Rani Mukerji, Kalki Koechlin, Kajol, Irrfan Khan and Sridevi.

Paying tribute to the 1970s, the designer revisited the era by showcasing it with his distinct signature touches, and by recreating the power dressing period.

Giving a new fashionable dimension to the sari, Mukherjee brought in a romantic military flavour to the rest of the ensembles. For evening glamour, there was glitter that glistened on the catwalk.

What followed were pre-stitched draped saris, toga gowns with shimmering hemlines, saris with net extensions and jumpsuits with sheer net capes.
