Nitya's latest collection is an irresistible range called ‘Iridescent Space’ with strong inspirations like Star Wars and the galactic world. Predominantly in silver with sudden bursts of gold and gunmetal, shimmering Swarovski crystals added colours. The collection includes body harnesses, cuffs, ear cuffs, multi necklace chokers and much more which is why there is something for everyone in this stunning collection.

Their collection was primarily inspired by the postcards of the world, galvanized by the world undiscovered it was a compilation of unseen mountains, seas, people from different cultures and music unheard. Mint scarves, bralets, pleated jackets, fishtail skirts and bell sleeved tops were the highlights of the compilation in tones like mint, white and colourful prints. A sleeveless lapelled jacket with a cropped top and midi skirt, bell sleeved multi coloured pleated calf length skirt and the printed long flowing cape, top, and shorts trio had a marked summer feel. This dress is a perfect example of everything this collection represents!

Nishka Lulla

Staying true to her concept of relaxed fuss-free fashion that has multiple timeless uses, Nishka presented ideal summer wear. Putting an emphasis on paired separates to create numerous looks, she added a more feminine edgy twist to the garments with her interesting touches. With fabrics that were perfect for days when the mercury is rising she chose muslin, organza and lace with an iridescent touch. The colour card was filled with neutrals and pastels as ivory, glacier grey, ice blue, strawberry pink and almond were creatively merged with classic blue and Marsala.
