Inspired by the Indian Maharaja and the Sadhu, Ruchika Sachdeva's latest collection from her label Bodice was androgynous.

Combining the two contrasting themes, the designer offered up sharp blazers and trousers, silk blouses, shirt dresses and pleated numbers for women, alongside culotte trousers, V-neck tunics and elongated shirts for men. Amusing white ghungroos and embroidered moustaches on the clothes further adhered to her inspirations.

Shades of maroon, burnt orange, olive and mustard dominated the garments, while the fabrics were chiefly hand-woven pure cotton denim, crepe, wool and tulle.

Seen here is Freddy Daruwala in a pair of pleated wide-legs, teamed with a fitted vest.

Calling her line 'Chapter Two', Nupur Kanoi was inspired by the Trojan and Grecian era, "when romance was very much a part of history for goddesses and warriors".

The silhouettes were voluminous yet asymmetric, with cord and thread embroidery as well as tie-dyeing details.

Seen here is a flowing black dress, with a purple threadwork shrug-like add-on giving it that touch of edginess.
