Arpita Mehta

Her collection ‘The Golden Hour’ was suited for festive and wedding season alike. Standing true to its name, the collection was a luxurious merger of raw silk, tabi silk and chiffon in dramatic hues of gold, sindoor, emerald and black. Detailing? We think the intricate mirror work on every piece, be it pants, lehengas or crop tops made her show a glitzy affair.

Her collection ‘The Oasis at Sunset’ was a beautiful amalgamation of Indian fusion and Victorian fashion designs. Made to suit the hectic festival and wedding schedule, she kept her garments fluid with chiffon, georgette and net to meet the needs of modern Indian women.  Hero piece? Orange lehenga and choli in subtle floral prints with zari border.

His was a show to remember. Named ‘Easy Glamour,’ his collection reflected a mix of varied cultures such as Indian and tribal Russian to infuse more drama. A rich colour palette of yellow, emerald, rust, teal and aubergine made his clothes festival appropriate while the unusual cowl cuts and golden flecks in an array of dhotis, pencil skirts and gowns were the highlights of the show.

Her collection ‘Mandi’ was truly experimental. To bring out the collection’s organic nature, she used an array of bold and quirky prints like fruits and vegetables and gamcha checks in fabrics such as hand-woven jamdani, worsted wools, pashminas and mulmul to pay an ode to our Indian farmers. Our favourite? A check and fruit print sari worn with a jacket and belt that stayed true to the designer’s whimsical point of view.

Neeta Lulla

The most favoured designer of brides, she presented a vintage glam collection for modern brides-to-be. Her collection ‘The Real Bride’ was not only a display of fusion bridal wear but also a lesson in beauty looks for the modern bride. Key piece? An earthy brown lehenga with gold work that made for an understatedly royal statement.
