Diana Penty will add more Bollywood glamour to the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Spring-Summer 2018 edition as she will be the showstopper for designer Punit Balana. The Jaipur-based designer will showcase his line ‘Bagru’ at LFW on its closing day on February 4.

Known for focusing on local techniques and art, Balana’s new line is in tune with the art of creating vivid and intricate prints through the use of natural dyes and traditional techniques. “My style has always been minimal and comfort plays an important role in my everyday dressing. Punit’s collection is relaxed, yet every bit stylish – just perfect for a casual day out. I look forward to walking for him at Lakme Fashion Week this year,” Diana, who has featured in films like “Cocktail” and “Happy Bhag Jayegi”, said.

For Balana, “Diana was a perfect choice” as showstopper. “Her personal style emulates the essence of Bagru, which showcases very contemporary yet comfortable silhouettes,” Balana said.


‘Bagru’ comprises modern silhouettes engulfed in traditional ‘Bagru’ printed fabrics. “I like to explore new technique every season and this year my collection is inspired by the 400-year-old art of printing which is namesake to the town ‘Bagru’ in Rajasthan, it originated in. Classic pieces characterized by traditional techniques, makes the collection unique yet wearable,” Balana said.
