Actor Taapsee Pannu will walk the ramp at the Lakmé Fashion Week (LFW) Summer/Resort 2018 as the showstopper for label Ritu Kumar.

Ritu's collections, titled Hip Hop Baroque, is a blend of street couture and rap culture. It is inspired by the rebellious spirit of the past subcultures, and has been re-contextualized to feel fresh and original.

The collection mixes prints and introduces new-age textiles like shimmer jersey, Lurex georgette and handloom sequins, while its color palette is a study of contrasts with black, blue, and metallic interspersed with ecru, baby pink and ochre.
