Mumbai: Actress Katrina Kaif walked the ramp at the inaugural session of India International Jewellery Week (IIJW) that started here on Sunday.

Kaif walked the ramp wearing a peach ruffled lehenga, a traditional ensemble with a small blouse and rich, flowing skirt, with a jewel-encrusted top created by fashion designer Neeta Lulla. The actress also sported chunky diamond jewellery that was based on the traditional seven-stone floral cluster design.

“I think Neeta Lulla is been in the industry for probably 25 years. She knows about her colours so I have a lot of trust for someone like her. I know what kind of look she wants to present. It doesn`t come naturally to me, it``s a thing like, what kind of bridal outfit do I want to wear. Probably, personally I would go for something really understated and really liked it,” said Kaif.

The actress also unveiled a new bangle collection - the Divine Circles.

IIJW is India`s first-ever Jewellery Week and would run till Thursday.

The extravaganza will showcase the collections of 30 designers, including Farah Khan Ali, Varun D. Jani, Bina Goenka and Rhea Nasta. Well-known jewellery brands like Mirari, Gitanjali, Amrapali, Tanishq and Ganjam are also participating.

Buyers from Japan, Russia, Britain, China, Italy, Malaysia, Libya, Morocco, Iran, the Czech Republic, Poland, Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan are also expected to attend the event.
