Like a breath of fresh air the Wills India Fashion Week kicked off on Wednesday at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi with designer Rajesh Pratap Singh's collection.

The show started a bit late, but every bit was worth waiting for. White ruled the collection that also had an interesting mix of rainbow colours.

The collection showcased white shirts teamed up with multi-coloured skirts that had geometric designs on the hemline, striped multi-coloured knee-length ballooned tops teamed up with plain leggings.

Colours like steel, silver and blue made their presence felt later in the showhere was a strong reference to the silhouettes of the eighties with off-shoulder necklines for flouncing jersey tops which ended in broad tight fitted hems worn over capris and slim fitted pants and shorts a smart urban look.

The effortless crisp cuts of the silhouettes were highlighted through strong linear fabric textures, which created optical illusion and accentuated the body like a sculpture.

Many new faces walked for Pratap. The guest list included Kalyani Chawla, Rohit Bal (Gudda) and Rohit Gandhi.
