The Aartivijay Gupta and Aditi Jaggi Rastogi collection displayed a variety of innovative designs of traditional Indian wear. Saris featured were blue and red with embellishments and patterns, accompanied by feathers in the models hair, harking back to the glamorous era of old-school Bollywood.
Flowy lehengas worn with cholis featuring high collars and intricate Indian embroidery followed the sari sequence. The traditional salwar kameez was given an extra feminine edge as it brought in lace churidars and sheer leggings. A long aqua skirt paired with an ornate open purple and gold jacket that resembled colors of the setting sun.
The showstopper lehenga was in a warm tone of pink and complemented by a sheer stole or dupatta, also in pink and dusted with sequins and shimmer.
Twisted Marine, by the Ankyra collection used simple and clean cuts to accentuate the female form in all its elegance. Knee-length dresses with sharp cuts were interspersed with ruffles. Cowl sleeves, frills and embroidered yokes were seen on the runway. Treated textiles of silk, satins, chiffons and georgettes used a progressive colour palette that ranged from ivory, earth brown, pastel green and lavender to deepening pink hues. Priyanka Kakkar’s pastel dresses were embellished with motifs and dashes of bright colours that added a sense of vibrancy and excitement – the hallmarks of spring – to the elegant clothes.
