Flirty and feminine
Not your regular boxy winter dresses, Arpita Mehta’s La Fleur is all about power dressing with a hint of femininity. A balanced mix of ruffled pants, kaftan capes, sequined bralette with floral prints, this collection is fit for a diva. Keeping in mind the lifestyle of young women Arpita has created easy to wear designs like pre stitched saree and jumpsuit with flowey cape.
The runway was on fire as Krishma Kapoor walked out wearing a sheer sharee. To give it a wow factor, Arpita included elements like a body hugging choli and a long sweeping cape to the show stopping outfit.
Platform for the new
Upcoming designer labels Kanika Goyal, Poochki and Shanti unveiled their collection on day 3. Kanika’s collection played with variety of prints as she incorporated various techniques like screen, digital, heat, transfer and rubber printing. Where as label Poochki’s collection was inspired by the clouds as they incorporated light fabrics with crimped texture and tying it all together with cloud prints. Label’s Shanti’s collection was contrasting to the modern designs as they decided to stick with pure silk and linen materials for their collection.
Bollywood actress Soha Ali Khan walked the ramp in an outfit put together by all the three labels. The embroidered vest was from Kanika Goyal, pencil skirt from Shanti and a sheer black top from Poochki gave Soha a confident look.

For the millenial royalty
Nachiket Barve’s collaboration with R|Elan™ brought along a beautiful collection named R|Elan™ Millennial Maharanis. Inspired by the young Indian royalty, Nachiket fused traditional elements with modern, lightweight and comfortable fabric, allowing the wearer to move freely. From the age old lehengas and sarees to jackets and gown, this collection had a perfect balance of everything. Talking about his collection Nachiket says, “The collection uses a wide range of techniques that reinvent age old craft traditions with a modernist’s point of view.
The R|Elan™ fabrics were wonderful to embellish and do a range of techniques like beading, applique, resham embroidery and to just use for colour blocking.” Justifying the name of the collection, Dhadak actress Janhvi Kapoor walked down the ramp in a gorgeous floral lehenga. The colour palette of pink and blues combined with the delicate thread work brought out the royalty in the outfit.
