The fourth day of the Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week was dominated by a mixed presentation of haute and casual couture by Indian designers.
Models sizzled on the ramp, dressed in exquisite spring summer attire designed by renowned fashion designers at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW).
The day saw models sashay down the ramp in designer Reynu Tandon’s collection made of digital print outfits in Lycra material.
Her collection varied from dresses, tops, tunics, lounge wear to shorts, beach wear and gowns targeting the urban rich brigade of women who believe in looking stylish and chic at the same time.
“Look at her she is carrying a digital printing saree, which is a new thing we have introduced this time also, and it is in lycra. It is not normal georgette or anything what we have done before, we have created something new,” said Tandon.
Bollywood celebrities were conspicuous by their absence during the fashion week and only Femina Miss India World 2011 Kanistha Dhankhar was seen walking the ramp for couture designer Atsu Sekhose.
On the other hand, designer Anita Dongre decided to do casual for her latest collection that showcased feminine outfits in pastel shades.

Nida Mahmood’s ‘Tamasha’ on the fashion runway was joined by mythical Ravana and some interesting clothing and headgear that spoke of funk and creative wearability. Psychedelic colours, a few sculpted forms, prints, etc were used to reproduce the drama of puppet shows and the garments in various silhouettes and shapes. Add to that what is known as her signature style: vibrant, embroidered saris worn over skinny jeans with blouses.
Raakesh Agarwal made a stylish comeback after a few seasons with a fantastic presentation of western silhouettes. His creations were unique with some very nicely executed latticework on jackets.
Pankaj & Nidhi once again excelled in making their collection more creative this season, while keeping the wearability factor intact. Once again the lattice work on various outfits, folded fabric circles and scallops, cutworks, applique, etc were done with precision. The designers also made sure their creations were body-flattering and meant for those who want to make a statement. Best from their stable by far.
Anupama Dayal did what she does best… an amalgamation of catchy colours and flowing silhouettes. A long chanderi dress, turquoise overshirt printed with purple wild flowers and an aubergine cowl dress formed part of the tasteful collection.
Nikasha Tawadey’s Indian-meets-western collection in off-whites had a separate mix of garments that could be worn to a cocktail party, and at a more traditional do. A printed gauze sari with pink silk border, long tunic with attached chiffon stole and halter tunics were done tastefully and stylishly.
At the Fiama di Wills showing, designer Wendell Rodricks, as always, kept his surfaces clean, except towards the end where he brought in a few with embellishments. A beach gown with ruffled silk organza bodice and aqua satin silk trim and a pearl grey satin silk gown with long ruffle running down the front were stylish.
