Latest: Upcoming fashion shows to bring new trends.
For fashion lovers, there is something to cheer about as the city will be hosting one of the biggest fashion events this March. The Wills Lifestyle Autumn/Winter Fashion Week is scheduled for March 13 to 17 where hundreds of designers will come together to define the fashion trends of the country.

After successfully holding the spring/summer fashion week in the Capital in October last year, the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) is gearing up for the autumn/winter fashion week that will last for five days. The event is already hogging limelight with the declaration that Masaba Gupta will open the fashion week. As preparations are still going on, FDCI is yet to come up with the official list of designers. However, Metrolife tries to take a sneak peek into the collection which will be showcased by designers this March.

Surily Goel, who made her debut with Lakme Fashion week in 2006 and has designed outfits for actors in movies like Saawariya, Salaam Namaste and many more, will showcase her collection inspired by the deep jewel tones and the colours of the season. “My autumn/winter 2013 collection seamlessly merges the underlying themes of elegance, simplicity and glamour, with my trademark touch – shine,” says Surily.
“With a rich colour palette of emerald green, burgundy and navy blue, the latest collection to be showcased at the event will bring together silhouettes ranging from straight lines to jumpsuits and long dresses with geometric embroidery,” says Surily. Other than this, the key feature of Surily’s collection will be drapes.

The collection of another designer, Anupama Dayal, whose autumn winter 2008 collection was declared ‘easily the prettiest’ by an international fashion magazine, is inspired by the history of Delhi. Her collection will be titled as Ishq-e-Dilli. “Delhi has been invaded, looted and plundered. It had a troubled and difficult past. Yet, it is what it is, an important heritage city with over three world heritage treasures. For me personally, this collection will be about digging deeper roots and making peace with the city I choose to live, work and raise my children in.”

Similarly, designer Pia Pauro, who in her last fashion week showcased tribal prints of Africa, has this time focused upon the rich handicrafts and handlooms of Muslim countries. “My collection is inspired from Central Asia,” says Pia. “The silhouettes will have prints and embroideries of Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. Colours are deep in the entire collection. Models will be made to sashay the ramp as mountain chic and royal ladies of 60s,” she says.

With designers ready to spread so much colours on stage, one can now estimate the fashion that will be showcased during Wills Lifestyle autumn/fashion week.
