Payal Kapoor “Notes from The Raj”, recreated the beauty of the Raj with her collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter Festive 2012. Payal Kapoor used specially woven designed fabrics from Benares in shades of green, nude, black and wine. 
There were dhoti style miniskirts with Benares halters, two toned tiered maxi skirts teamed with peplum blouses and cutwork scarves, multi-coloured layered lehengas with cutwork covers and rich red kaftans with imposing shimmering leaf embroidery. 
Show stopper for Payal was Mini Mathur in a rich magenta gold zardozi lehenga, choli and dupatta.
