Rajesh Pratap Singh is truly the man of the moment. First of all he is the first ever Indian designer to be roped in by Woolmark, world’s leading wool textile organization to promote the merino wool in India (READ: the stakes were really high) and next his Autumn Winter’13 collection at the WIFW lived up to all expectations and beyond. The offering without any unwanted extras clearly focussed on creating pieces that perfectly fits into the concept of an ideal and pleasantly chilling Autumn Winter collection.

Drawing inspiration from the imagery of the countless journeys that the Great Indian Desert has experienced over centuries, designer duo Shantanu & Nikhil christened their latest Autumn Winter 2013 collection - The Dunes. The offering that has references of the artist, Tarek Al Ghoussein’s work which re-imagines the desserts with a block of color, saw a host of colors like orange, nudes, red, blue, grey, charcoal, beige, white and midnight blue that instantly captured the landscape of the desert (READ: Sand Dunes) which changes with color of the sky.

Tarun Tahiliani’s offering for Autumn/Winter’13 was inspired from Mahakumbh and was truly a celebration of a country called India and its mystical layers. For his inspiration, Tahiliani, the genius traveled to Kumbh in Allahabad to document the drapes of the sadhus and his journey combined with expertise and vision resulted in creation of a collection that boasted of fabulously structured contemporary drapes. The collection was indeed a story of the drapes.
For Satya Paul Autumn Winter 13, Masaba Gupta, the new creative director of Satya Paul injected a fresh perspective to the brand's overall image by bringing in her unique design sensibilities and vision. The collection featuring contemporary cuts, silhouette and fun prints, represents the young, energetic and a new age Satya Paul girl (SP Girl as she says) who is fun and quirky. "We are trying to reposition the brand and so now we are aiming for the young girls instead of women above the age of 30,” said Masaba.
