The `Threesome` group including Mehak Pruthi, Kanika Seth and Ankit Sharma displayed their collection for men and women, inspired by `Avatar`, the 3D Hollywood film.
Bringing in a touch of desi styling, Richa Aggarwal`s designs were multi-patterned pants, stylish waist coats, cool tops and colourful capris that revealed traditional textiles and crafts. "I tried to represent India`s streets through my collection. My clothes are simple, yet wearable," Richa said.
Kavita Sharma`s range `It`s a Beautiful Life`, had embellished dresses, long skirts and seductive tops. "The collection was based on the idea of rebirth depicted in the Bhagwad Gita," Kavita said.
Sneha Arora`s collection called `Paradigm` had women`s wear from cute comfy dresses, to skirts, tops and then onto crisp jackets, trousers and striking dresses.
Presenting his collection titled `Immortal`, Asa Kazingmei was inspired by the beauty of Naga textiles of the Tangkhul Naga tribe near the Ukhrul district in Manipur.
The show`s last collection called `Aarambh`, was presnted by Aniket Satam. "My collection was based on the phenomenon that the world will end in 2012. I worked on layered silhouettes and tactile designs narrating visceral orgy of our complex minds," he said.
