Sidharth Tytler, though a popular name on the fashion circuit, launched his show at the India Fashion Week as a debutante this year.

The Delhi based designer kick started his show on a note that was spiritualistic yet chic.

Strong on simplicity and wear ability, the collection is aptly called 'A Tribute to Moksha'. The line saw colourful creations in mint green, orange, fuschia pinks, olives, turquoise, maroon, beige and ivory.


Models walked on the ramp wearing silhouettes that screamed of urbanity. Zipper and strap corsets, bomber jackets, bucklers, foil-printed tops and tees, multi-panelled short jumpers comprised some of the creations.

Inspired by the mystic cities of Banaras and Kashi, the clothes reflected a calm mood.

Banarasi silk trousers and coats in beige, with hot pink embroidery on the edge of the sleeves, looked striking.

Suede, linen, laces, leather, brocade and silks were some of the fabrics used in his creations.

Skirts formed a major part of Tytler’s line. Ghera skirts in gold tissue and umbrella skirts with foil printing stood out amongst others.

Something for men too! Double breasted suits, Banarasi shirts, pyjamas, poufferjackets and khaki quilted jackets were the separates designed for men.

Chantilly lace skirts with mint lining, bustiers with lace wrap, eggshell vests, knee length trench coats, Banarasi pants, pyjama, bomber jackets with bucklers and piping were the strong points his collection.

Sunil Sethi, a big name in the retailing sector, gives his verdict on Tytler'scollection: "I think as a debutante, Sidharth’s creations are promising and very impressive."

Must-haves from Tytler’s line:
