Mumbai, March 14: Ace designer Rohit Bal, who celebrates his silver jubilee in the fashion industry this year, will bring the curtains down on the Lakme Fashion Week Summer-Resort 2016 (LFW) as the grand finale designer of the event. His offsite show will be held at the heritage structure of St. Xavier's College here on April 3. The five-day fashion gala will start from March 30, and Bal is back for his second innings as grand finale designer at the forthcoming edition after his finale show in 2012. “The offsite show will happen at St. Xavier's College,” said a source. The designer will work closely with Lakme make-up experts to create stellar looks for the runway that will set the beauty and fashion trends for the upcoming season. Commenting about the association, Bal had previously said: "Great to be back again! Always a pleasure to work with the Lakme team. The most incredible part about doing Lakme Fashion Week is the carte blanche the designer is given. A complete and uninterrupted creative flow is what Lakme has given me." "That in itself makes doing the finale precious and priceless. I am thrilled to be given this opportunity." LFW will witness a string of veterans and new designers showcase their creations on the ramp.
