Ritu Kumar's Spring/ Summer 2013 Collection at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week

Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week also showcased Ritu Kumar’s Spring 2013 collection. Now, we know, Ritu Kumar is one of the largest & most respected designer-wear brand in India today. First a little bit about the designer herself.

Ritu Kumar started her career in 1969 and went on to pioneer the term ‘fashion’ i...
n the Indian context. In 2002, the company launched a sub-brand LABEL – Ritu Kumar. Its patrons include Indian stars such as Aishwarya Rai, Priyanka Chopra, Lara Dutta, Dia Mirza to name a few and international celebrities such as the late Princess Diana, Mischa Barton, Anoushka Shankar.
Ritu Kumar is also the recipient of numerous awards such as the ‘Indira Gandhi Priyadarshini Award’ for her contribution in the field of fashion, the “Chevalier des arts et des lettres” award by the French government and recently, the Achievement Award at the Loreal Paris Femina Women’s Awards.

So talking of Ritu Kumar’s Spring 2013 collection, we bring you the pictures of the collection from Style Me India and Glamcheck.com.

The Label Ritu Kumar brand and the Ritu Kumar Couture, both were showcased as the grand finale of the Wills India Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013. The collection's emphasis was clearly evening wear!

We found this description of the collection very appropriate from lifestyle.msn, "The heavy usage of motifs and moods of 1930s, 1940s and 1950s Spanish era with garments crafted to offer a modern representation."
