The final day of India International Style Week season 2 was a complete fashion extravaganza. From veteran to upcoming designers the show had it all. Top models like Carol Gracias & Lakshmi Rana graced the runway with Bollywood actress Mugdha Godse as showstoppers. The show also saw vivid range of color palette in the collections, from Chirag Nainani‘s indigo to Gazal Mishra‘s pastels to Niharika Pandey‘s quirky take on vibrant tones. The show ended with a thanking note by show director Abhimanyu Singh Tomar with event director Akhilesh Agarwal & promised for another fashion carnival in upcoming month of this year.

Here are some of exclusive backstage pictures shot by me at the final day of the fashion week to give you all a closer look at the collections. Also have a look at the runway images shot officially by photographer Jiten Agarwal here on his page
