Kolkata: Bringing some of the best names in fashion together on a single platform, the four-day Kolkata Couture and Lifestyle Fashion Week (KCLFW) will kick off here tomorrow.

Top-notch designers like James Ferreira, Lina Tipnis, Zubair Kirmani, Paras Shalini, Archana Kochar, Rohit Verma and Anita Dongre will showcase their collection in the second edition of the fashion extravaganza, which will end on April 17.

City-based designers like Sanchita Jhulka and Kishan Bagri are also joining in to give the collections a local flavour.

"Our focus is on the niche wedding garments market in the city. Couture fashion is limited to wedding dresses to a large extent in the city. Therefore, our collections will also reflect that," said organiser Vivek Agarwal of Idea Weavers.

A host of Bollywood celebrities are also expected as showstoppers to add to the glamour quotient.

To facilitate traders and buyers, there will be 10 stalls for exhibition-cum-sale.
