James Ferreira
Luxurious, minimal and sophisticated textures and details adorn James Ferreira’s designs at the Beach Week this year. Look for kaftans and dresses in plunging, be-jewelled necklines and well-constructed fabrics on a bright canvas – everything that spells beach chic.

Shouger Merchant Doshi
A breath of fresh air, designer Shouger Merchant Doshi toyed with modern textures and cuts in lightweight fabrics to cater to the contemporary bride. Baby doll and scallop cut cholis formed the central piece of her collection.

Shriti Pratap
Creative, practical and flamboyant, Shriti Pratap went back to the basics armed with a whole new colour palette. We suspect her use of OTT prints in monochrome and bursts of solid colour will ensure her collection becomes a wardrobe staple.
