In Part III of a series, we bring you some more ramp action from the ongoing Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week!

Celebrity showstoppers, bikinis and minis -- the WLIFW has all that and more in store as it unfolds till October 12 in the Capital!

Here, we bring you a few more glimpses of the best designs that have been showcased on the runway!

We start off with the sexy stylings of Hemant and Nandita, whose collection 'Happily Unmarried', saw models catwalk in joyous and cheerful tones of oranges, blues and greys signifying freedom and liberty. Seen here is a floral bodysuit teamed with a sleeveless sheer blouse.
