Here's a glimpse of the beachwear that lit up the runway on Day One of India Resort Fashion Week.

When a fashion event takes place in Goa, it's sure to feature bikinis, swimsuits and resortwear.

And that's just what designers Nidhi Munim, Gogee, James Ferreira and Anupamaa Dayal had in store on Day One of the IRFW yesterday, along with a jewellery showing by Varuna D Jani.

We bring you the best off the runway, starting with Nidhi's collection for the stylish beach babe called 'Bay Dreams'. Seen here is a unique belted monokini in colourblock.

Designer Gogee's collection from her label 'Swan' was a fun, flirty affair dominated with black and white with splashes of colour added in.

As live music played in the background, her models sashayed down the ramp in lovely resort creations like this dotted bikini top and matching shorts, worn with thong sandals and a beach tote.

And finally, we come to Anupamaa Dayal's 'Apsara' collection, which mixed beachwear with ethnics to create vivacious, colourful resortwear.

Her draped dresses, dhoti pants, sari trousers, swirling skirts and edgy dresses "drew their inspiration from the beautifully sensuous Menaka who distracted the sage Vishwamitra from his Tapasya according to mythology".

Seen here is a green satin sari draped dhoti-style with an electric blue bikini top.
