NEW DELHI — As the number of fashion weeks across India continues to grow — more than 20 at the last count — Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week sponsored by the Fashion Design Council of India, or FDCI, here remains the main event both designers and buyers take seriously.
The five days of shows ended Sunday with 58 designers showing and 57 booths in the exhibition hall. There was certainly a step up in elegance and more of a focus on cleaner cuts and an emphasis on styling rather than embellishments. This was evident in the works of both established and newer designers, including such names as Rahul Mishra, Payal Pratap, Ranna Gill and Shivan & Narresh.
