"Respecting and understanding the small nuances of every occasion, at Anamika Khanna we present the 'Luxury 2017' collection, the store of a beautiful wedding," said the designer.
Rohit Bal, with his classic and immaculate embroideries will kick off the ICW extravaganza with a show at the restored Bikaner House.
