Models stole the thunder in scintillating ensembles created by renowned designers during the ongoing Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week- Spring Summer 2013 here.

Fashion designer Rahul Mishra used Khadri fabric and explored graphics in this collection, which was appreciated by the audience.

His designer collection named 'Weave, Sew, Yield and Bloom', saw models displaying creations ranging from warm ivory to black and coral.

The models were seen wearing jackets, flowing dresses and asymmetrical patterns.

Mishra said that he used khadi, since it is the oldest textile known to mankind and it was still a hit among the youth in this century.

"We use all organic khadi with nice texturing. The idea is that organic khadi is one of the oldest textiles known to mankind and how we can make it more relevant for the 21st century," he said.

Designer duo Alpana and Neeraj presented their collection in an unconventional manner, with icebergs and icicles beautifully represented on the clothes.

The audiences were in for a visual treat, as snowflakes, white ice, lakes, never-ending-wintry blacks and greys were all stitched on to clothes, creating a heavenly atmosphere.

Asia's biggest business fashion event, Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring Summer 2013 commenced on October 6 and is celebrating its 20th edition on the runway.

A little more than a decade after India held its first fashion week, India's fashion industry is becoming increasingly popular after some of its designers have made their marks on the world stage.

Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week is the most prominent fashion week in India, as it has increasing number of Indian and International buyers visiting in every year.

Several Bollywood starlets and fashion divas across the country are expected to be a part of this glamorous weeklong extravaganza.

Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) systematized the fashion show.

The event would conclude on Wednesday. (ANI)
