Now this was quite the extravaganza! 25 of India’s leading fashion designers – veterans most of them and a few stellar new ones. Stunning pieces and setup and lovely that the designers walked the runway at the end as well. It is unfair that so many of us love and adore their work and don’t see enough of the faces behind the collections. Styled by Gautam Kalra. Produced by Preferred Professionals.

Starting with Wendell Rodricks.
