Revving up the glamour on Day One were collections by designers Nikasha Tawadey and Surily Goel. A high dose of jewel colours and bling was the common denominator in both their signature collections. Delhi-based designer Nikasha’s collection “Raat ki Rani” charted a predominantly Indo-Western road map with saris,sharara-jumpsuits,kurtas paired with churidars,dhoti salwars and kaftan-like dresses. For embellishments,the designer chose sequins and embroidery. The Indianness of the garments vis-a-vis fabrics and embellishments was contrasted with contemporary cuts and bolder styling.

Goel’s “The Spice Story” was also inspired by dark and deep tones,characteristic of the autumn-winter season. Emerald green was a clear favourite with the designer,who worked her way through hues such as burgundy and navy blue. The designer played up dresses — both long and short — along with jumpsuits and billowy tops. Given her popularity among Bollywood celebrities,Goel’s autumn-winter 2013 collection seemed ready to slip into for evening soirees and red carpet dos. Proving that well was actor Preity Zinta who looked elegant in a one shoulder sequinned dress as she closed the show for Goel.
