The swimsuit is every woman’s smallest but trickiest wardrobe staple. (And that’s before the waves get to it!)

But the third season of India beach fashion week (IBFW) is here and we hope the latest swimwear, cover ups and ready-to-wear beach wear will take us to the beach. IBFW is all set to grip Goa with ace designers like Neeta Lulla and Varun Bahl setting the ramp on fire.

Kicking off on May 20, this season of IBFW continues to be the sought after resort-wear fashion symposium with ace designers showcasing their latest trends to the fashion conscious.

A number of new age young designers are debuting on the ramp, hoping to display their creativity and alluring fashion line over the three day event with buyers, top celebrities and HNIs (High net worth individuals) from across the globe.

This year the IBFW will have Lulla opening the week with an experiential show at the Museum of Goa. Her collection is inspired by Chinese flowers like Cherry Blossom and Osmanthus that represents feminity, sensuality and love and romance.

The closing show will be an equally grand event with Bahl lining up his collections. Other ace designers at the event include Mayyur Girotra, Anupama Dayal to name a few.
