Monisha Jaising

Monisha Jaising wooed the audience with a collection that defined mystique glam. The show started with a beautiful range of embroidered denims and gradually progressed to embellished gowns, fringe separates and metallic appliqué overalls in bursts of gold, ivory and brown.

A riot of colours and prints, essentially of the Chhap Tilak, sliced garlic and chillies were spotted on various silhouettes. Voluminous garbage-bag pants, pencil-shaved frill pre-stitched saris and deconstructed blazers defined the collection. Masaba showed us how to break down any look into separates as opposed to to wearing it together.

Shivan & Narresh 

Shivan and Narresh took inspiration from artist Fernand Leger’s works and translated them onto everything from needle-fringed kaftans, neoprene lehengas and bikini saris, to sexy bralets, body suits, trikinis and raindrop dresses.

Payal Khandwala

Like always, Payal Khandwala wooed us with her artistic designs that were every bit wearable. Jumpsuits, kaftans, dresses, palazzo pants, shirts atop saris, low waist dresses all carried her signature relaxed vibe. Leather bags, belts and geometrical jewellery were on point. A classy collection like none other.

Saroj Jalan

Opulent lehengas in dark greens, bright reds and mustard with a few pocketed cholis lit up Saroj Jalan’s runway. This one’s for the Indian brides who are looking for something different yet traditional.

I am Design by Pratik & Priyanka

I am design packed a punch with lehengas paired with winged cholis, asymmetrical fringed dresses and jumpsuits. Fanny packs fastened atop travel pants get our vote!

Taneiya Khanuja

A complete white out at Tanieya Khanuja with structured midis, cutwork pockets, fringed tops and voluminous skirts along with panelled midis and decadent gowns defining the collection.


From flowy bell-sleeved cocktail dresses and pussy bow blouses to sequinned skirts, sheer trenches and high slit maxis, Verb by Pallavi Singhee was high on sensuality. A promising line up for your upcoming soirees.

Aartivijay Gupta

Midi dresses, loose shirts with squirrel prints, bears on skirts and butterfly and bunny prints on fun, relaxed silhouettes. From the vegetable garden last season, Aartivijay Gupta went the whole hog in bringing our kindergarten memories to life with her new line.

Shriya Som

A complete floral story was seen at Shriya Som’s collection. From long evening gowns to structured pantsuits, this was a versatile wardrobe that even shifted to shimmery evening wear.

Rara Avis

Long white maxis, pastel stripes and a complete colour palette of light blue, white and beige dominated the collection at Rara Avis. What stood out were the knee length pallazos worn with a long kurti, boho-based accessories and some fun carry bags.

Farah Sanjana

Splattered paint-like prints and glaring graphics defined the collection by Farah Sanjana. The structured outerwear and bustiers with core cutouts are fun ensembles to add to your summer wardrobe.
