India's most promising young fashion designer, Charu Parashar displayed Boho chic collection with printed pants and a free-spirited look.

Elaborating on her collection, Parashar said that neon colours were really hot for the Spring-Summer 2013.

"A lot of beiges, tangerine, print had lot of mix of colours - greens, lot of neons like we have done lot of other colours also which were not at the ramp but they are at the stalls. So, neon colours are really hot for the Spring-Summer 2013. A lot of appliqu� this time in my collection, there was lot of embroidery but not in the face. So, bling is also something which is not going to be too over the top less of it for the next season," said Parashar.

The fashion designer-duo, Hemant and Nandita said that they chose white with flower prints in their collection and added that it was inspired by sportwear.

"It was summer, so, it was all about whites and flowers. What we did was again the prints that we are known for but in a very different manner. We took the same five - six motifs and revolved the whole collection with the same motifs. So, that was all about the collection. There was lot of sports wear inspiration, if you have seen, there were girls who were wearing hair bands and like you know the silhouettes were quite sporty, they were of short lengths, like you see, tennis dresses silhouettes were there," said fashion designer-duo, Hemant and Nandita.
