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.
