Ritu Kumar in collaboration with Reliance Jewels showcased the latest designs for Label & her signature line ‘Ritu Kumar’. The ‘Label’ collection was inspired by the beautiful land of ‘Bhutan’ as the livid colours were a prominent feature. While Ritu’s Bridal collection was done up in softer colours & had abundance of lace work.
Kaftans, Anarkali, Lehenga, knee length dresses, pants, shirts and jackets were the styles in this collection. I do like the colourful outfits but felt the Indianwear required something more creative…….the designs felt too simple. The lace detail work is what we have witnessed in numerous other collection. I am all for the ‘Bhutan’ inspired outfits but unfortunately was looking out for something new in Bridalwear.
How to create an exquisite collection from Indian handloom??? This is what Rahul Mishra does best every year when he introduces his new collection on the runway. This season was no different where Rahul Mishra created an entire collection out of Chanderi & Maheshwari weaves. Sarees, cholis, Palazzo pants, Jackets, Anarkalis were the main highlight of his collection. Floral Motifs were the beautiful designs weaved into the fabric in golden & silver.
This collection was devoid of any heavy embellishment or embroidery while emphasis was given more on the drapes. The bright colours like rani pink, saffron, haldi yellow were stunning and very ‘Indian’. Love the fact that Rahul can make Indian weaves come to life in such a contemporary way. Love the outfits!!!

Collections which IFP loved were…….
Designer Rahul Mishra’s collection ‘The Baroque Tree’ was showcased at WIFW. Baroque which literally means style of European architecture, music, art of the 17th and 18th centuries, was the inspiration with Indian touches behind this collection. Long flowing dresses, short dresses, jackets, pants were a part of this collection. Rahul Mishra played alot with sheer fabrics for detail-work & drapes in this collection.
The colours were primarily black & white with hints of reds & blues. The collection had a very red carpet feel to it………..loved the knee length dresses which will be a sure ‘hit’ among celebrities. Overall the collection was done well creatively & the detailing was commendable especially in jackets.
Designer Ranna Gill presented her Autumn/Winter 2013 collection at WIFW. The colour palette consisted of darker shades while detailing was kept limited to the neckline only. True to her form, Ranna played with alot of prints in her latest works. Flowy dresses, jumpsuits & sheath dress were the highlight of this collection………..these had a feminine appeal to it. IFP felt the dresses looked very beautiful on the runway…..infact very ‘lady like’ is how I can describe the outfits.
I am happy that this collection was way better than Ranna’s previous works. It has less embellishment while more focus was put on the fit of the outfit. The outfits were very chic, glamorous and stylish. IFP gives a thumbs up to Ranna Gill’s recent offering & would love to see people don these outfits.
