Kareena to catwalk
Kareena Kapoor is likely to walk the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) winter-festive 2012 runway at the grand finale to be jointly presented by designer Kallol Dutta and duo Pankaj-Nidhi.
The forthcoming edition will be held on August 3-7 in Mumbai.
"Kareena walked for Manish Malhotra two sesons ago and we have shared the work with her. We are already working with her (for this season). Kareena is taking out time for that," Purnima Lamba, head (Innovations), Lakme, said.
However, Lamba says nothing is finalised for Kapoor's grand finale catwalk as yet.
"At this point we have not decided the prospect of it, but she is very excited to walk for us. So Kareena might be the showstopper," said Lamba.
Last season, veteran designer Rohit Bal presented an outstanding finale. But this time relatively new designers such as Kallol Dutta and Pankaj-Nidhi are getting the chance.
Lamba said: "I don't see there is any risk. As somebody who has invested in the future of fashion, it is my responsibility to give them a voice."
"The concept of bringing fresh perspective to the finale was very exciting. So we were very thrilled to get them on board and they both have very individual takes on fashion."
