Ranna's show was slated to take place on the day one of the WIFW, but all shows for that day were cancelled because the organisers - Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) had failed to secure a clearance from the fire department of the city.

Gill's collection included assortment of dresses, tunics, blouses, boyfriend boxy jackets, easy fitting blazers. The detailing included a vast array of patchwork, knots, sequins, ikat prints and layering and hand embroidery.
The collection also boasted of kanta work and dye prints, multi-prints.
