Lakmé Fashion Week Autumn/Festive 2013 has ended, and what a show it has been! Countless designers, including many of India's most elite, showcased their creations, ranging from bright traditional garments to contemporary monochrome outfits. Fashionistas and Bollywood celebrities alike flocked to Mumbai to partake in the festival of fashion.

The six-day extravaganza, which kicked off on Thursday 22 August, was packed with big-name designers, including Nikhil Thampi, Payal Singhal, Ranna Gill, Anita Dongre, Manish Malhotra, Shantanu Goenka, Amit Aggarwal, Rocky S, Pria Kataaria Puri and many more.

Here are our favourite moments from the week - we expect you'll be as dazzled as we are by the end of this gallery.

Ken Ferns

Looking up to the sky for inspiration, Ken Ferns hit upon the moon as his muse and called his collection 'Moon Rise'. Sedate ivory, liquid gold, dusty beige and shades of deep greys, gave the colour palette a romantic touch as well as mysterious, futuristic appeal.
