Clad in leather pants and a leopard-print blouse, pop singer Rageshwari danced to Shakira's popular number Hips don't lie as she showcased Deepika Gehani's collections revealing the "wild side of women" at the Wills Fashion Week on Friday.

Gehani's compilation, named "Unleashed", is a tribute to the 21st century woman who has transformed from a shy person to a woman with strength, speed, agility and the ultra keen senses of a cat.

"My collection is a tribute to the contemporary confident woman of today. I have named it 'Unleashed' as it reveals the wild side of women. Wild doesn't mean aggressive but it is about her newfound prowess and feline intuition. She is a sleek and stealthy creature, balancing her life gracefully between her many responsibilities those of being a daughter, wife, mother and so on. Like any wildcat, she is dangerous, elusive and untamed, yet responsible, dependable and maternal," she said at the ongoing Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW).

"Rageshwari is a beautiful woman of today, she is sexy and full of zest and enthusiasm for life. She was just perfect to be my muse," Deepika told the agency.

Her line is marked with leopard and zebra prints on soft, cascading fabrics like satin, Lycra, net, georgette. The embellishments are of muted glass beads, glistening swarovski, metallic embroidery and antique zardozi.

The collection offers dresses of varied lengths, mermaid skirts, leggies and blouses of various styles.

"The silhouettes are fitted, sexy, and elegant. When you wear the dresses they give you an attitude," added Deepika.

The outfits are accessorized with chunky silver chains and bangles, and gold lace.
