The collection was feminine comprising of both long jackets and short shrugs, teamed with dresses, skirts and ripped jeans.

The designers Jatin Verma and Shradha Murarka (Vizyon) took gothic with their dark yet glamorous collection.

"With these clothes, I want to target the red carpet in India. Of course we will add colour according to what people want," Verma said after the show.

The gothic tone was carried forward by Murarka, with many of her dresses featuring tassels.

"The clothes are for a festive season. We have used a lot of dark hues but all of them sparkle making them different and unique," she said.
