For all those who thought that men can't dress fashionably, take a cue from Kunal Rawal who showcased his collection on Day Two of the Fashion week.
The 20-something costume designer whose spring-summer collection was inspired by his own karkhana (workshop) cleverly blended the various elements of his workshop which translated in the form of prints, cuts and silhouettes in his designs.
The semi formal collection comprised an assortment of shirts, sleeveless blouson, summer suits, lined breeches and jackets-- most of which will be an instant hit with audiences.

The jumpsuits in bright colours had quirky hanger, crowshat, carton, and doormat prints.
The diagonally chequered sleeveless top blends well with the beige skin hugging trouser.
Sidharth Rawal makes an impression in this beige toned jumpsuit.
Rawal also experimented with martial printed shirts. Here, when combined with a light coloured blouson and dark brown trousers, the result is worth-mentioning.
In case you haven't noticed yet, Rawal has also designed the shoes to compliment his outfits.
Throughout the collection, you will see the men sporting loafers, kolhapuris and boots replete with prints on the ramp.
Needless to say, the black and brown light weight shoes that blend fashion with comfort served the perfect accompaniment for the boys.
The fake jacket lapels lend earthy coloured, metal grunge shirts the much needed respite.
Ishaqzaade actor Arjun Kapoor who is popular for his grunge look made quite a few heads turn in the audience when he walked the ramp in this all-black traditional outfit.
The yellow sleeve lining, we think also helps breaks the monotony.
Loverboy Shahid Kapur on the other hand wore a low neck paint print tee with straight fit trousers.
