Aneeth Arora opens Lotus Make-up India Fashion Week
Organised by India's apex fashion body, the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI), the show was held at Aqua, the poolside lounge bar in the capital's The Park hotel.
It began with a soothing musical performance by a group of musicians, lending itself to the comfortable atmosphere for the spectators.
Dresses in the shades of blue and yellow dominated Arora's line. The colours were drawn from the marine landscape.
And to give an 'aqua' look to the collection, the dresses were embroidered with little floral motifs and models' hair was accessorised with fish-shaped crests and cutouts of corals.
The young designer also introduced frills and ruffles for a unique take on layering and there were crocheted edgings and beaded fringes developed closely with skilled Afghan refugees.
Also, different materials were used for their texture, including handcrafted ceramic buttons.
According to the theme, many guests were also dressed up in resort wear paired with flip-flops, sunglasses and hats. And to create a holiday mood, the audience was also served coconut water.
Known for creating her own textiles, Arora added a Banarasi touch to the line, giving it a cross connection of Western and traditional culture.
She used Banarasi brocade to give a European effect to the outfits.
The models marked the end of the show by dancing to the background music, eliciting a huge round of applause from the audience.
