Japanese designer Atsushi Nakashima brought back the 1960s' disco music and fashion with his line titled "Revival" on the penultimate day of Lotus Make-up India Fashion Week (LMIFW) here on Friday.

Inspired by the 1960s fashion and music, especially disco, funk, soul, R&B and Rock-A-Billy, Nakashima's line was presented by Fashion Design Council of India and the Embassy of Japan.

Nakashima, whose vision is the marriage between tradition and modernism, says: "I want to give life to modern and avant-garde ideas never forgetting to keep a traditional side behind."

Staying true to his inspiration, Nakashima's range saw the use of bright colours including neon yellow, fluorescent blue, and pastel yellow.

The range, made of ultra suede, saw patterned dresses, bomber jackets, slip dresses, bell bottoms, mesh skirts, thigh high boots, pleated knife skirts, denim, and others.

Keeping the vintage fashion in mind, the designer accessorised the models with fanny packs, sunglasses, tilley hats, scarves, gloves and stockings.

Apart from the garments, another highlight of the show was the use of lights and music, which was by Tsuyoshi Domoto Project "Endrecheri".
