Finally the day all fashion lovers across the city wait for is here and what better way to start than Masaba's debut collection for Satyapaul. A balanced mix of neons and subtle colors, this show was a party. Main highlight were the lipstick and telephone booth prints. Anupama Dayal reinvents Delhi with her collection Ishq-e-dilli. The show is started with monochromes which bursts into an array of colors. She takes inspiration from Mughal and Islamic art. The beautiful and intricate lahengas are an absolute delight! Anaikka by Kanika Saluja talks about the woman of today who is bold, modern and fearless. The collection starts with nudes and goes to darker shades. We see her werqing the rock look!

Vineet Bahl's collection Awadh is all about Lucknowi silhouettes, chikankari and mirror work. Handloom fabrics with intricate thread embroidery is seen throughout. Vineet's nawabi collection is stunning and graceful. With a rich color palette of emerald green, navy blue and wine, Surily showcases a collection inspired by jewels tones. She keeps it simple yet high on glamour. Namrata Joshipura's collection showcases the angels in black and gold. Gun metal, edgy dresses and crimped hair remain the highlight of the show.

Pankaj and Nidhi's collection The Music Box takes inspiration from the sounds various musical instruments produce. The collection is young, fresh with lattice work, asymmetrical hemlines and lots of textures. I fell in love with the peplums and the socks+heels.
