The first show on day four saw a cold turn-outin terms of the audience, probably because it was a debutante’s show.

But, Ayesha Depala surprised everyone with her dreamy, flirty, feminine designs.

The collection, unveiled with an evening dress, was the highlight of the Dubai based designer’s line.

The creation looked lovely with the use of creamy pastel shades like pink, peach, ivory, nudes and whites.


Models posed on ramp wearing floating chiffons and trims of lace that looked graceful. The line, so to say, was very international, hitting at the modern woman.

Fabrics like silk, tulle and chiffons were the mainstay and remained consistent throughout the line.

The designer, known for cocktail wear, used light flowing sheer materials in this line too. Diaphanous gowns in paisley, knee length dresses with frills on upper half of the outfit, bustier dresses with intricate detailing ruled her collection.

Even though every western in look, the designer claims her designs are for India as well. According to her, “My creations are for any woman, who appreciates style and quality.”

So, what inspires her to design such feminine clothes? “I design for the urban woman and this range is inspired by the ethereal winter landscape,” says the designer.

Ayesha already has her range stocked at the Saks Fifth Avenue, to be launched
soon. What more could a debutante at the Capital’s fashion week ask for?
