On an impressive day five of Wills India Fashion Week Spring edition, Rajdeep Ranawat showcased ‘Santorini’. A holiday to this magnificent island in Greece left a very deep impact on the designer. So impressed was he, that the whole collection revolved around it.

He was inspired by the churches and buildings which have neo-classical and baroque influences. A spectacular expanse of clear blue sea, black sands, blue sky and white houses on hillocks was the imagery behind Ranawat’s collection. The colorful bougainvillea and ornate grills too formed a part of his collection.
