Panaji, Nov 29 (IBNS) Stylish outfits dazzled day one of the India Resort Fashion Week (IRFW) in Goa Wednesday evening, which saw actress Isha Sharvani as showstopper for designer James Ferreira's resort wear collection.

Designer Nidhi Munim presented collection for women who want to look their stylish best in the water and out of it. Nidhi's 'Bay Dreams' collection was a perfect offering - from swimwear to cover ups.

The colour card had two options - bright neons were teamed with white for lovers of solid hues, while ikat prints in neon yellow gave a colourful choice. Floppy knits bags and the very abstract jeweleries added more glamour to the collection.

Another designer Gogee Vasant showcased her collection 'Swan' which was a mix of swimwear, bikinis, cover-ups, maxis and everything for a resort holiday.

Showstopper Purab Kohli, TV star, in a batik shirt and black wrap tonsures, walked the ramp with a guitar and two beauties - Nicole Huber and Hazel Keech on either side of him.

The designer, making her second appearance on the ramp, had detailing collection with a combination of silhouettes and fabrics.

The show was also open for jewelry collection with spectators applauding designer Varuna D Jani's launch - 'V Rock' and 'VOW'. Gold, rubies, emeralds with precious stones and twinkling diamonds added glitter.

The show ended with Anupama Dayal's colourful line of printed pants, bikini tops, cowl dhotis teamed with the tiniest of cholis and tunics with bandhni edged hemline. The collection had a taste of Indian rustic ethic wear.
