A burst of colour and embroidery inspired by the ripples of water defined Arpan Vohra's collection on Day Three of Lakme Fashion Week.

Indian fashion that caters to global sensibilities." That's what designer Arpan Vohra sought to serve up on the third day of the LFW, with elegance, sporty style and sex appeal all thrown in to create structured silhouettes. The highlight was actress Chitrangada Singh in the showstopper. Here's a glimpse.

We start off with this aqua-toned half-sari, worn with matching leggings and a cutwork gold bodysuit.
