Actress Kareena Kapoor will be
walking the ramp for Lakme Fashion Week Summer/ Resort 2013
which kick starts from March 22.
Kareena will be the show stopper for the grand finale
which will be presented by designer Namrata Joshipura. Last
year too Kareena had walked the ramp for grand finale
designers - Kallol Dutta and Pankaj and Nidhi.
"Yes this year too Kareena, being the brand ambassador
of Lakme, will be walking the ramp for the finale. She is
quite excited about it. We hope she would have some time from
her busy schedule," Purnima Lamba, Head Innovations, said.
On if Kareena's husband Saif too will be present this
year, Purnima said, "I think as Saif is busy with his shoots,
he might come to admire her. Since the show is more to do with
women, he might not walk the ramp and just be present there."
Namrata, excited about her show, said, "I am really
looking forward for the finale. I am quite happy to showcase
my collection, which will be a blend of contemporary and
"I had an interaction with Kareena but my focus would
be to keep her look quite to the essence of the show - which
is contemporary modern," she said.
The Lakme Fashion Week Summer/ Resort 2013 will be
held at a suburban five star hotel from March 22 to 26 where a
total of 87 designers will present their collection.
Designer Tarun Tahiliani will open the LFW Summer
Resort 2013 with a grand off site show on March 21.
Renowned designers including Vikram Phadnis, Manish
Malhotra, Nishika Lulla, Rocky S, Masaba, Gaurang Shah,
Swapnil Shinde, Bhairavi Jaikishan will showcase their work.
Also, this season LFW has come up with a unique cause
which will be showcased by designer Vikram Phadnis.
Phadnis's show will speak about rural India Swadesh.
"Swadesh is here to change the attitude of rural India, which
is not about bullock carts and wells but there is a lot more
to it. I have visited quite a few villages in Maharashtra. I
can't talk much. All I can assure you is that it will be
something unexpected," Vikram said.
On if any celebrity will be walking the ramp for him,
he neither confirmed nor denied saying, "you all will be
surprised and I think one will miss a lot if they miss my show
