Talking about his collection, Chauhan said: "It's inspired by dreams... There are a lot of layers you can see. There are graphics which are the dark part of the dream... and floral motifs which depict happiness..."

The designer said apart from the cotton silk and linen he also used the Bhagalpur fabric, which he described it as his "brand philosophy".

The collection, which is done by both machine and handwork, also saw a use of layers in the designers line.

Chauhan says it was to "depict the layering of the dreams."

Post Chauhan's show, fashion connoisseur Suneet Verma presented his range.

Staying true to his name, his collection was all about glitter, crystals, mirror work and bling beautifully infused into 42 ensembles comprising of lehengas, sarees and gowns.

Talking about his garments, Varma said: "They look dressy and heavy but there is zero weight on them..."

"I like things that are blingy and sexy. I like shine, shimmer and glamour... but not things that weigh you down. So what you thought was mirror work, was not actually mirror work but a foil that is cut to look like mirror," he added.
