Surily Goel, Malini Ramani and Masaba Gupta were among the many designers who wowed us with their designs at the India Resort Fashion Week that concluded earlier this month.

Here are the ten best looks on the runway.

Romper suits, crop tops, bikinis, swimsuits ruled the runway at the India Resort Fashion Week.

The last of the several fashion events that dotted the calendar this year, the India Resort Fashion Week saw some of the most well-known designers showing their creations on the runway.

And though there were those few ramp fails that made us cringe, resort wear experts like Malini RamaniSurily Goel and young talent -- Nishka Lulla and Masaba Gupta -- made it really difficult to choose the best of the lot.

Here then, is a look at the best designs we saw at the fashion week!

Archana Kumar

This black and orange number stood out from Archana Kumar's collection at the fashion week.

The combination of colours, asymmetrical hemline and the print make it a viable option for both a day or a night out.

Another piece that made a mark from Kumar's collection was this cutout bikini and the printed long shirt it was paired with.

An absolute head-turner, if you ask us.

Another piece by the same designer -- a monokini with a sheer detail -- this optical illusion piece earned a lot of points for its use of a very unconventional pattern and its risque neckline.

If it's big on quirky prints, it has to be Masaba.

While this flouncy dress had us with its accentuated sleeves but did you check out that neckline and the full skirt on that thing?

The crop top champion and veteran designer Neeta Lulla's talented young daughter Nishka was a hit on the ramp as well.

This extremely laid-back bohemian look was a major win on many counts. Young hipsters would agree.
