Shilpa said she loves Punit's design sensibilities and is looking forward to turning his showstopper.

"His silhouettes and the fits are very comfortable and apt for festivities. I have adorned his creations in the past as well and am very excited to be his muse for Lakme Fashion Week," the actor said in a statement.

Talking about his new collection, the designer said the garments are a perfect fit for the upcoming festive season.

"A sensibility of fluidity and ease sets the brand apart. Each and every ensemble has been designed to for dance and fun," Punit added.

The clothing line draws inspiration from Rabari women known for their diligent embroidered textiles, creativity, aesthetic and identity.

"Rabari" collection will be dominated by the colour black and unique hues of dry henna and buttercup. It will also feature comfortable silhouettes in the designer's signature prints in natural dyes including bandhej, stripes, and chequered prints.

LFW runs through Sunday.
