Trendy, Stylish, Fun! The BEST of Wills India Fashion Week

Bringing designs that stood out at the show's recently concluded latest edition.

The recently concluded Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week, held over five days at New Delhi's sprawling Pragati Maidan, saw Indian fashion designers showcase their Spring/Summer 2014 collections.

A mixed bag of unusual ideas and experimental silhouettes gone a tad wrong, the fashion week witnessed hits and misses in equal measure.

Take a look at the BEST designs we spotted on the ramp!

Malini Ramani

Resort wear expert Malini Ramani's collection was dominated by embellishments and sheer panels on evening gowns and a series of bikinis.

This particular piece struck us as rather magnificent long jacket and the striking cutout monokini inside.

Known for her fun prints, Masaba had quite a few new designs to showcase on the ramp. 

Also big with sheers, this long skirt with a tulip-like hem and a crop top was one of the better pieces from her collection.

To say that designer Pia Pauro's collection was big on colours and prints would be a serious understatement.

This orange and yellow number was too fun to pass up for this list. Paired with those eye-catching stilettos and earrings, what's not to like here!

After nautical and jailhouse prints, it'd be exciting to see metallic stripes, highlight of Amit Aggarwal's collection, climb up the trends charts.

Simply put, that silver skirt is all kinds of awesome AND totally wearable if we might add.

Nida Mahmood's Bollywood-inspired graphic designs were a bit of a dampener on the amazing hot pants and jackets she showcased.

That said, we were instantly taken by this cool mint coloured number solely because of the perfection that was the crop top and its sleeves.

Also, the Amitabh Bachchan design on the skirt actually worked in this case.

While risque cutout swim suits and crop tops were the highlight of the designer duo's show, this bright and strikingly unusual dress won brownie points because shirt-dresses are too few and far between, especially on Indian ramps.

Apart from the rich shade of blue, we love the slight dash of red peeking from an inner layer of this stunner of a dress by Urvashi Kaur.
