Designer Ranna Gill named her collection 'Exotica' (a sponsored show by Fiama Di Wills) owing to principles of luxury, innovation and passion. While we thoroughly liked Gauri and Nainika's bias toward the colour white in a way that duo decided to showcase an entire collection almost colourless, Ranna Gill picked the colour to discover all possible shades that humanity beholds in nature. To include live performances in fashion shows seems to be the new mantra with designers these days. Designers probably wish to spice up the presented collection with a certain degree of more entertainment not quite visible earlier. Ranna Gill's show too had a star performer, a woman dressed in pure white, playing effortlessly with ropes in an aerial act. The acrobatics skills and breathtaking summersaults that she descended into beguiled us from believing we were there to witness a collection of summer-spring outfits. Needless to say, the audience was left speechless, only their claps of applause resounded in appreciation. Who knows, this could have been the designer's way of compensating for the loss of a showstopper in actor Deepika Padukone, as had been doing the rounds in the past. "Jersey is the USP of my ensemble range that gradually pops up in neon hues and vibrant colours. It is a potential trend that will attract more people to this mixed bag of textures, fabrics and colours," says the Indian designer. Silk georgettes and woven brocade are the preferred fabric Ranna has tried weaving her collection as a melange of exotic flora and fauna.
