Anupamaa Dayal was the opening show, which was vivid and colourful.
There was a lot of patchwork, colour, and polka in Anupama's SS19 collection.
The designer herself was resplendent in a rainbow-coloured printed saree. Anupama Dayal at her best!
Designer Samant Chauhan did a collection inspired by the scenes of Bombay.
The runway was lit up with bright pastels and shades of white, embroidered with scenes from the Bombay locals.
Designer Samant Chauhan is all smiles at the culmination of his efforts.
Rimzim Dadu was all about the metallic cords, metal wires, and a blend of the two into our couture.
The show also incorporated virtual reality into its concept, which was away from the usual.
There was a SS19 collection by Huemn, which was a lot of patterned play.
Handiwork details brightened up Huemn's pieces in unexpected ways.
The Ministry of Textiles also put up a collaborative show with the Australian Government.
The materials were sourced directly from handlooms in this collection, making it unique.
The finale show of Ashish N Soni was inspired from the concept of Minimalism.
Graceful, functional and relavant designs to the modern day era.
Inspired by the mountains, the collection of Rajat Pratap Singh was all about rugged and rocky silhouettes.
Fabrics that were wooly, models with fake snow on their heads, and the cool breeze gave us the chills!
And last, but not the least, Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna were the finale designers.
