It was one of the few shows that really stuck to the season's theme.

The New York-based designer who showed in India for the first time had some stunning designs on display

Bibhu Mohapatra, the toast of fashion ramps in the West, gave us a glimpse of just why he is one.

There was very little colour in Mohapatra's collection.

The designer kept the palette fairly non dramatic barring the occasional red.

Even as he explored pink, he did so in a sombre manner.
