Asian couture at India Fashion Week
Sarong-like skirts and kimono-inspired dresses are the predominant styles on display at India Fashion Week in New Delhi.

News provider Agence France-Presse notes that female models were clad in draped dresses, pea coats and straight skirts with a colour palette ranging from maroon to teal and moss - with bright knee high socks, geisha lips and slanted eyebrows completing the look.

The menswear collections were dominated by the androgynous aesthetic, with jodhpurs and skinny trousers identified as the highlight of Manoviraj Khosla's show.

Designer Suneet Varma tells the news agency: "My collection celebrates the Asian superpower. The Indian and Chinese influence is big everywhere."

He adds that oriental fashion has certain allure that is not present in the West.

Meanwhile, Reuters recently noted that vivid legwear - including tights in bright shades of emerald, carnation and clementine - was a predominant theme in Jasper Conran's womenswear show during London Fashion Week.
