The much awaited fashion show of day 2 at the India Fashion Week in Delhi was of designer Rina Dhaka. The self-proclaimed 'Queen of flesh' turned coy in her portrayal of clothes, but she admitted as much and she has a reason too.

"It was a winter collection that was supposed to cover your "assets" so I opted for a decent look. But next year, in summer, I’ll be back to what I am best at.”


The Delhi-based designer took a U-turn to the 90’s as she presented a warm, wintry look with fleece jackets, wrap around short skirts, knit dresses. The common thread in all creations was lace which Rina feels is a must have this season.

“Lace adds to the trendiness of my creations. It is flirtatious and chic. One will see more of lace in the coming year,” says Dhaka.

Shrugs worn over bustier dresses in metallic looked racy. Bottom wear included tube skirts, ciggie pants. Micro kilts, crochet jumpers, scarves, swan skirts in fluid materials added to the season's look. The princess cut one-piece creations had adornment below the bust line.

Look was modern, flirty and feminine. Passable as club-wear.
