Actress Esha Gupta turned many heads when she walked as the showstopper in a pink lehenga by designer Yoshita Yadav at the seventh edition of India Runway Week (IRW).

Yadav showcased her collection inspired by the city of Lucknow on Saturday in New Delhi.

“In this season’s collection, we at Yoshita Couture have used 100 per cent raw silks, woven in Varanasi and Bengaluru. In this collection, one can see a vivid representation of motifs taken from Bara Imambara, Chhota Imambara and the Rumi Darwaza,” she said in a statement.

The second day of IRW started with college students walking on the ramp in creations of students from Apeejay Institute of Design.

Designer Disha Doshi Gandhi also showcased her collection titled Euphoria.

Designer Payal & Zinal presented their collection titled Vida De Frida, which was based on the theme — age of “ungender”, highlighting that a person matters and not his or her gender.

The Rachat collection by designers Shruti and Rohan revolved around the personal emotions of an army girl.

Manika Surekha’s The Flute Enchanter range was inspired from the life of lord Krishna.

Designer Mithi Kalra showcased dresses, based on the traditional art of Madhubani, hand embroidered on pure silks and organza through her collection The Indian Disney Story.

The Persian Story by designer Ravneet Toor was inspired from the tales of Persia. It featured flowy silhouettes and intricate handwork with the mix of royal colours.

Designer Yasmeen Mehra symbolised the inner beauty and innocence of a girl child evolving into an attractive woman who still has a heart of gold through her dresses.

Magiska by designer Shalini reflected the Indian heritage of rich textiles and centuries old craftsmanship.

Organised by the Indian Federation for Fashion Development (IFFD), the three-day fashion event will come to an end on Sunday.
