According to him he was inspired by the Nikhil’s ideology for which he attributed him. Trousers, jackets, full-length gowns and long flowy tops in a number of colors including black, white and yellow were supposed by him as some of the excellent works done by him.
The collection of Niksha Lulla with a Bohemian feel also impressed many people. She displayed a transition in the story of a Bohemian girl, she presented in last season, who loved travelling. In fact dandelion flowers inspired her to use a lot of transparent mix of fabrics in her present presentation. Her collection was made to beat heat this summer so she included shirts, long dresses, shorts and long jackets in various soothing colors like light pink, blue and beige. She created fashion with a belief that style should give a comfortable as well as personal feel.
A fashion line titled as ‘Ladies and Gentlemen’ introduced by Nupur Kanoi had lots of metallic touch. According to her she added this flavor with a lot of detailing on the sleeves and collars to give a chic look to her fashion style. She made the day wears more casual by including metallic décor on them which is normally used on evening wears.
