WLIFW: Payal Jain


Payal Jain’s collection was called ‘Black Earth’ and had a color palette that seemed to have taken its cue from nature itself, lots of earthy browns, rusty red-browns, winter white and stone greys.

Capes featured predominantly in the collection as did jackets, wide necklines and houndstooth. Embellishment and embroidery were used to accent the pieces.

Ashima and Leena’s collection played with neutral colors like black, grey and off-whites and offset those by pieces in rich jewel tones like amethyst, sapphire blue, ruby reds etc.

Intricate saris, long jackets, evening gowns, cocktail dresses, day dresses, prints, embellished pieces among others were what made up the collection.

WLIFW: Rahul Reddy


Rahul Reddy’s collection was about the ’emotional extremes’ and the thirst for inner peace. The clothes were wearable, understated and muted. The range of skirts, dresses and tops all had clean lines and had either ruching, appliques or play on textures to accent the pieces. The color palette was a mix of mustards, greys and mauves.

WLIFW: Abhijeet Khanna


‘Birds of paradise’ is what made up the theme/inspiration for this collection from Abhijeet Khanna’s RISA.

The color palette was warm with the use of earthy browns and greens and really vivid with the use of bright blues and turquoise. The collection comprised of shift dresses, long structured coats and narrow skirts. The lines stayed classic and clean.

The theme was used throughout the collection with the idea of feathers appearing in layered, textured applications, embroideries, overlaps, prints and in inventive patterns.

WLIFW: Manish Arora


Manish Arora’s collection was all about the world of fantasy warriors!

There were metal armours, pop culture images like Mickey Mouse from Disney and from Japanese avant-garde artist Keiichi Tanaami, Japanese Samurai influences and anything medieval infused with pop-culture kitsch.

Crystals, stones, metallics, shimmer, constructed shoulders, layered textures, intricate embroideries, origami’esque construction and bead-work all made up the collection.
