The two had their shows scheduled back to back and both left a lasting impression. Gupta's collection titled ‘Florence’ showcased the myriad forms of womanhood through designs flaunting floral motifs and feminine artwork, while Chauhan's ‘Dream’ was all about clean glamourous cuts and detailing.

The designer's signature style of juxtaposing Indian sensibility with western cuts and patterns were well-represented through exquisite textures and ornamentations.

Gupta's collection included hand dresses made with woven chanderi, silk and georgette, asymmetrical net, chiffon gowns, embroidered structured skirts and silk organza sheer jackets.

Keeping the summer season in mind, pastel hues like lemon grass, misty blue, beige, pale yellow and ivory were prominently used for the range.

Chauhan’s collection had works of his native place Bhagalpur's master-weavers. He created simple yet classy designs by using Bhagalpur silk fabric and the garments were an elegant representation of style and glamour.

From long dresses, tunics, skirts, trousers to hand weaved saris, there was everything for everyone. One of the high points of the show was the usage of hues, including cherry red, blue, light pink, yellow and cream.
