Ashish's cuts were very feminine. Layering was key,
and chiffon underskirts popped out. Billowing slit sleeves,
ra-ra skirts and layered dresses made sure this collection
had a girlie appeal.

Clean cuts and clean embroideries gave the collection
a western look and the use of mirror work added an Indian
touch. White and black were mixed with a deep red and
there was even soft turquoise. Apron like patchwork
skirt were tied around trousers-it was being free and
Sans embellishment, Sonali relied on cut and texturing
to make her garments interesting. Prints too were used
but it was the texturing that stood out. Sonali mixed
fabrics together and prints were often used as a highlight
on textured garments. Colours used included burnt amber,
terrestrial brown, champagne beige and charcoal grey.
Khanna presented his energetic line 'Rockstar goes to
Morocco'. It started with a line of suits, which had
pin-striping. These were pin striped suits with nothing
'corporate' around them-linen was the main fabric, the
striping was in usual colours. Denims played a huge
role and added a rockstar element.
The theme for this show was 'Eternal Mystics' and it
takes inspiration from a region in the Himalayas. A
collection of whites started off the show. From whites,
things went colourful and there was an oriental red
line with gold flowers that had touches of jade blue.
The collection was inspired by the schoolgirl. Thin
ties were worn with pinafore style jackets, tops and
dresses. Uniform dresses had sprinklings of metallic
embroidery. Churi pants were worn with tunic blazers.
The colour palette was mainly black and white adding
a certain severity.
