Aimed at the jet-setting Indian woman, Anita Dongre's latest line 'Urban Goddess' is a colourful mix of the contemporary and the traditional.

Weaves of Benares, ikat from Andhra Pradesh and raw and Mushru silk came together on a host of Western and fusion silhouettes, consisting of cigarette pants, jackets, dresses and flouncy blouses.

The bridal showstopper truly was beautiful, modelled by Abhay Deol's ladylove, former beauty queen and actress Preeti Desai.

The show opened with these sexy multifabric knee-length sheath dresses with strappy backs taking to the runway.
