The Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Fashion 2018 in Mumbai saw a number of new trends in fabrics. Meher Castelino provides snapshots of the trends that caught the eye.

Fashion weeks in India now feature not only style trends, but also project what is interesting on the fabric front, as was seen at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Fashion 2018 held in Mumbai from August 22–26.

Designers displayed new weaves and combinations of fabrics that were the highlights of the event along with embellishments that projected some interesting surface texturing. Besides the designers revealing their trends in fabrics, the khadi show with four designers gave a new direction to the Fabric of Freedom, while Craftmark collaborated with designer Karishma Shahani Khan to present a new version of the kota doriya fabric and the Digital Empowerment Foundation teamed up with three designers to work with clusters. Tencel by Lenzing once again worked with designer Rajesh Pratap Singh for the second season and presented some great textile innovations.
