Accessories designer and stylist Shilpa Chavan has moved into mainstream fashion here at the LFW, although her creative output still shorts out the wearability scale!

Plastic box bodices, plenty of tulle and outlandish headgear -- sound crazy to you?

Well, it's just another collection from the diminutive, creative firebrand that is Shilpa Chavan, who owns the label 'littleshilpa'. Although her forte is accessories, the designer decided to put on a full-scale show on Day Two of Lakme Fashion Week. Take a look.

First up was this black tube, adorned by swirls of grey and a matching headdress.
