While ruffles, feathers, sequins, sporty chic and pastels, exotic shades of aqua, orange and hot pink adorned the ensembles at Paris, Milan and London Fashion Weeks, Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring/Summer ’15 showcased similar trends.
Eclectic mix of understated vivid hues, soft pastels and nature-inspired neutral shades are going to take center stage this season. From classic blue, browns, tangerine, to aquamarine, the color trends will have myriad of variety. Nachiket Barve’s display of tangerine and classic blue outfits at WIFW 2015 were well received.
Tinted Pastels: Color palette is going to be dominated by tinted pastels. We were mesmerised by Atsu Sekhose’s S/S ’15 collection featuring pastel hues.
Orange: Orange is going to be the new black in the upcoming season. Get ready to witness shades of tangerine and coral, to crimson. Anupamaa Dayal‘s S/S ’15 highlights shades of orange.
White: Samant Chauhan and Wendell Rodricks showcased all white silhouettes with embroidery in their own distinct style.
Silks: Besides soft fabrics, this traditional fabric is going to rule the fabric charts in Spring/Summer 2015. Payal Singhal‘s S/S ’15 is our favorite.
Sheer: Samant Chauhan and Rabani & Rakha‘s beautiful representation of sheer fabric created a gorgeous look. From chiffon saris, net lenghas to maxi dresses ensembles were high on sheer with multiple layers of light and soft fabrics at S/S ’15.
3. Embroidery & Embellishments
Mirror Work, Sequins, Applique work, resham embroidery and Chintz inspired prints are trending at Spring/Summer 2015. We adore mirror work by Dev r Nil and Gauri and Nainika’s floral applique embroidery. In addition, Joy Mitra‘s zardozi embellishments and Rohit Bal’s floral embroidery is to die for!
4. Digital Prints
A mix of prints ruled the S/S 15 runway. The geometric patterns, tribal prints and illusionary prints are back with a bang. Urvashi Kaur, Hemant & Nandita, Payal Singhal and Anupamaa Dayal presented a vibrant color story on runway at WIFW S/S 15. High on drama with a mix of prints and colors, the collections were a visual treat.
5. Color Block
This trend is prominent in Shivan and Narresh’s swimwear S/S’15, Payal Singhal‘s, Tarun Tahiliani’s and Alpana and Neeraj’s S/S ‘ 15 collection.
6. Crop Tops

Floral never goes out of fashion! Blooming prints, fine and delicate motifs, floral appliqué work and flower inspired designs never fail to impress. Rajputana by Samant Chauhan and Neeta Bhargava injected a fresh air of floral magic on the runway, as did Rohit Bal’s collection.

Spring/Summer 2015 is all about minimalism, saying that one can’t ignore the bling of jewelry. While last year nose ring ruled the jewelry trend, this year make way for stunning waist belts, maatha patti and quirky headgears. Alpana Neeraj’s show witnessed chic bow head gears and ribbon belts that elevated the styling factor. While Eka by Rina Singh completed her summer looks with lovely head gears and sporty shoes. We love the styling at Masaba and Aneeth Arora’s shows!
