Anurag Gupta’s collection “A True Story” tapped well into his design expertise. The impactful creative was made using handloom textiles which was (really) good. Think floral motifs, oversized dresses recreated in raw silk. The designer may be new in the game but he definitely knows what’s up.

Diyarajvvir runway show felt like a celebration. The collection asserted well and put the audience on the edge of their seats. There were plunging dresses, dramatic sleeves, bows, collision blazers and suits alike in shades of pastel and maroon.
Grand Finale: Gauri & Nainika:
The fashion event finally closed with a tremendous show put up by Gauri & Nainika. Their collection was inspired by the 80s. Perhaps the highlight of the show was Kareena Kapoor Khan as she sashayed down the runway in a off-shoulder black drape gown. Her hair was slicked back matched with bold lips. Obviously there was a lot to see from all the shows that happened but it all flowed well together. We are looking forward for more of this kind of style notions next season!
