The eyes were smoky and bold to yield a sultry evening wear look. The hair was notched up in a bun and bejewelled with ornaments. The face was kept clean with a pinch of colour on the pout to empower the bold black eyes.

The saris made an impact on the ramp as they were very wearable and light. The saris were embroidered in mughal architectural and floral motifs.

The backless blouses and halter-neck cholis really caught the audience’s attention. The sari collection could be worn for your best friend’s wedding. It is light and could be worn with statement jewellery to ease the look.
A red sari with a black and gold blouse was particularly attractive. The colour and the minimal embroidery was fit for a dinner party with a lovely cocktail ring and heels; not the one which the model is wearing though!
You have to have lehengas if you are doing traditional wear and designer Asif had them in colours like, off-white, blush pink, coral and so on.
The fabrics were again tulle with velvet and shimmering borders. A pale pink lehenga was heavily embellished with gold work whereas; the coral tulle lehenga was paired with a stone-studded choli.
