The show opened with a show by designer Rina Dhaka. She presented a fresh summer line at IFFD’s India Runway Week Summer 2019. Neat summer options in all shades were the main focus on her collection. Rina look is everything.
Why yes, this is a bridal collection. It’s by designer Alka Gilada. Her collection Khwabeeda was all about blending traditional bridal wear with modern motifs.
Next designer Laxmishriali opened with the Revolutionary Goddess collection where Laxmi Agarwal, acid attack survivor walked the ramp.
Kolkata based designer, Aditya Jain showcased his menswear collection. While another Kolkata designer Madhulika Mehta displayed her Satinvogue line which was full of sparkle, shine, and glitter.

Kaaisha by Shalini:
Designer Shalini showcased her collection Kaaisha on the Season 11 of India Runway Week. Actress Shazahn Padamsee was the showstopper for the show.
A welcome surprise was the RIG Clothing. The most out-there designs of this utility brand were of course the casual wear inspired by sports and travel. Spread over cargoes, shorts, shirts, in elements of durability-it was unequivocally neat.
Varija Bajaj, Apoorva Mahajan:
Actress Rashmi Desai walked the ramp for designers Varija Bajaj and Apoorva Mahajan in a wine hued ensemble.
LA –Styliste by Purvi Roy:
Singer Shibani Kashyap made quite an entrance at the ramp for La-Stylist in a black number.

Day 3 Highlights:
Here are all the highlights from Day 3 of India Runway Week:
The Student Show by Vidya Institute of Fashion & Technology:
The show opened with a Student Show by Vidya Institute of Fashion & Technology. These young designers did exceedingly well with their handmade and playful designs. Their dream work collaboration shows their teamwork indeed.
Rana’s by Kshitija:
Designer Kshitija’s work Rana sits at the junction of rural Indian woman. Her pieces showcase ethnic materials like jewellery, sequins, and even the special neon lights.
Sushmita’s collection is unconventional, modern, and unique (and we love it).
Saaj by Ankita:
Designer Ankita unleashed her collection Saaj at the finale of India Runway Week. The collection captures her Bohemian fantasy and offers a touch of urban Indian woman. Her work offers a mix of modern-girl aesthetics and Victorian frills.
Raegun by Kamran Patel:
There was specialness about designer Kamran Patel’s new collection Raegun because of the way he produced the raw clothes. It is durable in its own way, but graphic on impact.
The designer’s newest label made her show such a treat to watch. What stood out in her particular collection were the fun details that made strong statements with silhouettes and color.
The show opened with a vision of modern emphasized tailoring. The models came strutting down the runway with designs that were quite grown-up in execution.
Grand Finale- Anjalee & Arjun Kapoor:
The show finally ended with a show from designers Anjalee and Arjun Kapoor. Their designs speaks volumes about the vast exploration of quiet handwork all presented in a beautifully palette of earthy tones. This is a nudge forward collection from the designer duo.
Finally the India Runway Week 2019 came to a glam end. Hope you enjoyed seeing it all!
