WLIFW: Gunjan & Rahul


Gunjan and Rahul’s collection had many vivid colors, all inspired by fruits and vegetables like papaya, mint etc… The silhouettes stayed easy and free flowing and the color contrasts were muted and subtle. Skinny belts in fabric made an appearance too, giving the garments more form.

WLIFW: Ritu Kumar


There were goddess prints, mirror work, embroidery, fringes and floral motifs. Ritu Kumar’s collection in one part paid homage to the old world 20s glam, think ‘Gatsby’, and then in the latter part to the Caribbean Islands.

The clothes were often accented by use of mirror-work, embroidery or tonal thread-work. There were kaftans, sheath dresses, contemporary saris, casual day dresses and vibrant floral ones.

The cuts for the most part stayed fit, sharply tailored, more mature and narrow on the wear. The more elaborate floral gowns were more voluminous and vibrant.

WLIFW: Tarun Tahiliani


Tarun Tahiliani’s show had a bit of everything. The collection was swathed in different colors as varied as reds, purples, greys, blacks, beiges and creams and in different textures, tulle, net, tweed, velvet or his signature chiffons. The expected craftsmanship of using embroideries and other work in traditional Indian techniques was there too.

The menswear saw mostly Indian formal wear but the real show-stealers were the women’s designs. The collection swayed between Indian and Western ensembles but it was easy to easy that the Indian silhouettes retained the western influences in their clean, elegant and minimal design.

WLIFW: Abhishek Gupta & Nandita Basu


Abhishek Gupta & Nandita Basu’s collection was mostly spunky urban street wear. There was a liberal use of color, contrasts and graphics.

The textures were interesting, there were wool blends, jersey, brocades and quilted pieces. The ‘camouflage’ was interpreted and reinvented onto quilted dresses, ponchos and metallic pieces. And, printed leggings too made an appearance.
