WIFW begins on a vibrant note with Anupama, Masaba shows

New Delhi, Oct 9 (IANS) The opening shows of the 22nd edition of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week, which started here Wednesday, take your mind off the current autumn season.

Anupama Dayal impressed with her Gulabi collection, which adhered to its name by bringing in floral headgears that matched apparels in blush pink, baby pink and magenta pink on the ramp.

The range consists of saris, dress, trousers and even bikini.

"The colours and flowers bring sheer joy. I wanted to capture that," Anupama told reporters here after the show.

After she took a bow on stage, actress Alia Bhatt, standing on hot pink towering heels, opened the show for designer friend Masaba Gupta.

With her hair neatly tied in a ponytail, Alia looked stunning in a muslin dress with black and grey horizontal striped sleeves.

Masaba's collection tells how to wear saris in different ways. Some were teamed up with leggings and a few had pleated pallus. She majorly used cotton.

The Chandragupta prints with Banarasi embroidery added Indianness to Masaba's youthful collection.

"It's mix and match of different sensibilities. It's about being sporty and sensuous at the same time," said Masaba.

While Alia walked for Masaba, Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan occupied a seat in the front row and enjoyed the show.

"She is a friend. I am wearing a jacket designed by her. I like the bandhgala look. I found her collection very vibrant," he said.
