Designer Rahul Singh put on a stunning display at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi on October 9.

He was very impressed with the Japanese style of tie and dye which uses much intensive methods to create more aesthetic designs than the regular method. His entire collection – Shibori – was an expression and exultation of the art.
The mood was subtle, easy-to-wear elegance. He categorized it as resort wear but several designs harbored a versatility that could be tweaked for a number of scenarios if styled right.
Although he did use color, he went with the more tranquil hues that imparted a serene feel to the entire line.

The silhouettes were mainly flowy with the ever-popular peplum making their mark on a couple of ensembles.
Rahul played around with necklines a lot, favouring structured lines that had a quasi-geometric appeal.
The outfits were styled with ankle-strap heels in black, gold and silver.
The (seemingly) go-to makeup and hair for WIFW – sleek updos and bright neon lippies – graced many a model in this show too. We’re sure we’ll be seeing plenty of both in the months to come.
Actress Tannishtha Chatterjee modelled the final outfit – a plunging peplum silhouette blouse and orange leather pants. Hers was the only ensemble styled with pumps instead of strappy footwear.

As he came on the runway to take his bow, Rahul himself was quite the show-stopper in camouflage pants, a red tee, an effusive yellow blazer and sturdy black boots.
