WLIFW: Ranna Gill


Ranna Gill’s collection was dominated by a color palette that was a mix of beautiful purples, berry hues, smokey blacks and greys… Jewelled embellishments played a huge role in her collection and while a few prints and color blocked pieces made it into the collection, the show-stealers were the simpler pieces with attention to detail.

WLIFW: Manoviraj Khosla


There was dressed up denim and multi-color palette, there were embellishments, prints and interesting cuts, and then there were boots. Boots with tassles, cowboy boots! There was a hint of shimmer here and there and structured jackets were the norm.

Manoviraj Khosla’s collection wasn’t for the straitjacketed-banker-men-dress-in-black demographic for sure!

WLIFW: Namrata Joshipura


Namrata Joshipura’s collection had a palette that was somber and smokey, the only hit of color coming from a stray piece here and there. This collection too saw a heavy use of metallics but in a form that was softer and more subtle. The silhouettes went from being easy and free-flowing to form-fitting and structured. An easy elegance and understated glam is what the designer seemed to have been attempting to translate onto her collection.

WLIFW: Suneet Varma


Suneet Varma’s collection was called the ‘Lure of the Orient’ and in its interpretive form there were dresses of many lengths, embellished, appliquéd and in vivid bursts of color! Owing to the title perhaps, but there was that one mandarin collar dress and the mandatory red and blacks as far as colors go. Couldn’t help but notice the really funky knee high socks! Actually, those socks were the only things that stayed true to the ‘Lure of the Orient’ for me, can quite see school girls and young women in Ginza strutting in them!

WLIFW: Kavita Bhartia


Who would have thought this was a Fall collection looking at the explosion of color? A departure from the usual somber hues of Fall were indeed a welcome sight at Kavita Bhartia’s collection!

She married the eastern aesthetic and western design with elan and the collection comprised of many separates, some of which were just plain delightful! The silhouettes were fluid and the embellishments not too overdone.

There were those empire line tunics (which we love), scarves, layering and those really fun/funky tights. While I saw Proenza do neon tights for Fall, these take it a step further!

Definitely a collection with heavy gypsy-desi-bohemian influences, and not a collection for the shrinking violets among us for sure.
