Rimi Nayak is coming up with her latest ‘Travel Trails’ Lakme Fashion Week 2015 where her impromptu traveling experiences resulted into cartography elements of the prints. She has beautifully translated her imaginations on cotton, Georgette and satin. She uses saris, gowns, blouses and every imaginable dress where she creates excellent cartography.

Another designer Neha Agarwal first time comes up with James Bond movie title “From Russia with Love’, telling the story of two entirely different cultures in her own fashionable style. The dresses are surely inspired by Russian silhouettes and motifs, featuring on Indian fabrics and crafted by Indian techniques.  Her intricate fashion presentation is in the form of hand-embroidered applique on Georgette, ahimsa, dupion, tussar and pattu silks. The style is of course from Russia, which was prevalent in the early 1900s, but the technique is purely Indian. An ambitious attempt to create a fusion that might be received well by critics.

Suave craftsmanship, vibrant colours and Indian aesthetics; these three attributes are the main pillars of Sonam and Paras Modi who travelled to Turkey in 2014 and overwhelmed by the style of Istanbul. The latest collection reflects their muse called it ‘Istanblu’. The collection is dramatic no doubt about that, but it is also elegant, which captures the rich heritage and architecture of Istanbul. The collection is a fine impregnation of two entirely different civilizations.

Anushree Reddy doesn't need a foreign inspiration but her travel inspiration has led her to royal Nizam palaces of Hyderbad. The latest collection of this fashion designer called ‘The Royal Courtyard’ draws inspiration from the home of the Nizams. The dresses are royal with sublime prints and intricate designs. The simplicity of the dresses captures the eyeballs. She uses Zardosi, beads and crystals in her collection of attires, which tries to create a balance between medieval and contemporary.
