Swati Vijaivargie’s vibrant collection was inspired by the colorful terrain of Mexico. The classic colour palette of indigo and ivory dominated the collection with smatterings of red, pink, yellow, and green.

Sonal Verma of Rara Avis displayed a vibrant holiday wardrobe filled with fun separates in candycane stripes and pop colours.
