Bold and beautiful close fashion week

Bold and beautiful close fashion week
As the fashion fiesta came to an end on the fifth day of the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring Summer 2012 13, the potpourri of multicoloured themes and presentations on the runway concluded this edition of the fashion fete.

The `Ode to Gota' collection crafted by designer Jenjum Gadi was full of shimmer and shine. The designer picked by a rich Indian colour palette and ornamented his clothes with silver and gold coloured fibres. The next show `Isola Pia' by designer Pia Pauro also started with a good vibe as models walked in flirty dresses, jumpsuits and skirts, and created a buzz among the audience.

The patterns of ikat prints on swimwear and kaftans in soft flowy fabrics like satin, georgette and cotton silk were interesting. However, the bold neon hues highlighted by eye-catchy feather trimmings on the hemlines were a bit too much fun.

The colourful line `Zip' by de signer duo Shivan and Naresh was a refreshing resort wear collection.

The 50s-inspired bold cherry-red and white stripes on one-piece swimwear and itsy-bitsy bikinis had a breezy feel to it. The high-waist shorts and line dresses in combinations of aquamarines, browns and bright oranges were totally meant for slim dusky beach beauties.

After the beach-inspired collections, the next in row were back-to back shows by designers Charu Parashar, Rajdeep Ranawat and Sulakshana Monga.

Charu Parashar's love for everything flamboyant was evident as she presented a multi-coloured line of high-slit gowns, tight-fitting dresses, kaftans, maxi dresses and jackets with abstract loud prints.

The designer paired lacy white shrugs and bright orange-coloured jackets with her ensembles. Rajdeep Ranawat and Sulakshana Monga, in their respective collections `The Grecian Finesse' and `Fashion Ladi-da' went overboard with strong colours and bold prints, with sequins.
