Michelle Salins threw in some 50s and 60s-inspired silhouettes into the mix with the colour palette switching from hot pink to blush, lavender and crimson. The prints were largely floral with pleats and draped necklines adding some drama. Having dressed the likes of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Shruti Hassan and Shilpa Shetty, Rehane’s Spring/Summer 2015 line draws heavily from Kutchi embroidery and employs fun candy shades. Haute Hippie by Pria Kataaria Puri on Day 2 saw Persian prints in a riot of vibrant shades like sunshine yellow, cherry red, Mandarin orange, turquoise and neutrals on kaftans, high waist pants and skirts, crop tops, flowy dresses and jackets.
On Day 3, Ramesh Dembla set the tone for occasion wear this season with a blend of gold and hot pink garments coupled with a generous use of sheer and shimmer, while Arjun Khanna teamed up with MARD (Men Against Rape and Discrimination) to present a timeless line of jackets, shirts and blazers in indigo, black and red with interesting leather detailing. Deepika Govind brought proceedings to a close on Day 4 with her collection titled, Hampi which uses drape-based silhouettes of the early regional civilization of Karnataka.
