Her stall stood out with Leherias in bright colours. Another designer with interesting Indian wear was Meghna K., an interesting outfit that was picked off the racks was a 'Kimono-esque' wrap around kurti, which she had in a variety of colours. From Indian wear, there were also some western shifts in a variety of colours. Designer label, Paprika seemed to do justice to the upcoming summer that is going to hit with dresses in different cuts, in solid pastel hues √Ę‚ā¨‚Äú Yellow, Blues, Greens and Whites. Going with the same flow was designer label Ravage, whose collection was cooling and refreshing to look at, a welcoming sight to look at as it was directly across the entrance of the room.
