Fashion: Sabya rocks the runway, goes boho-glam!

As strains of Edith Piaf's French cabaret numbers played in the background and fairy lights twinkled in pretty rows above the runway, Sabyasachi brought Day One of Lakme Fashion Week to a close with his resortwear collection.

In a departure from his trademark ethnicwear, the designer put out a decidedly breezy line, with hints of bling and plenty of boho touches -- shiny bikini tops, translucent fabrics and retro glares dominated the runway.

Starting the show is this bold shocker (well, bold for Sabya anyway!) -- a transparent skirt and bolero, with threadwork placed strategically on top and worn over boy-shorts below.
