With a very fashionable cocktail look, models strode the ramp bringing forth the point that 'Azara' was about getting the contrasts right.
Soft net in pastel shades came together with silks and satins in an asymetrical hemline-inspired dresses with fun detailing enhancing the neckline and evolved emroidery touching the textures.
It was all about creating coordinates as the collection detailed to the realm of accessory designs. Bags with embossing and prints went with chic stilletos and shoes.
The signature style by Alpana and Neeraj has got acceptability by the fashionistas who patronised their experimental ensembles.
Neeraj said it was his first performance but felt confident about making a mark in the fashion world in Far East, the Gulf region, Europe and America, not to speak of India.
''India is at the centre stage now all over the globe. It is Indian designs and motiffs which are doing the rounds in the world of fashion. It was for this reason that we picked up block printing and sequin work,'' he told reporters here.
Alpana said most of the collection catered to the young, but others have not been left out. ''We will do it for everyone,'' Neeraj remarked.
Other designers who showcased their collection were Khushali Kumar and 'Zeal' by Shubhra.
