When we say runway ready, we’re not referring to ourselves. Although, we sincerely wish we were. Wills India Fashion Week is back in the game, with an exciting roster of designers, all set to display their Spring/Summer ’15 collection. It’s that time of year again, where fashion big wigs, budding bloggers, and Bollywood heavy weights doubling as show stoppers flock to the Capital for five days of fabulous fashion.

Fashion Week kicks off on the eighth of October, and will run until the 12th, with fashion darling Rohit Bal showing as the grand finale. WIFW kicks off with none other than Péro by Aneeth Arora, and will showcase regulars Tarun Tahiliani, ATSU, Kavita Bhartia, Payal Pratap, Gauri and Nainika, Malini Ramani, Nachiket Barve, Shivan & Naresh, Anupama Dayal, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Ashish N Soni, and Wendell Rodricks. Experience has taught us that these shows are almost always well-received, and stay true to the signature styles that we’ve all come to recognise over seasons. But the crew at LBB is most excited for the fashion newbies and the non-veterans, all constantly reinventing and staying on top of their game. {Also, all still affordable. Ish.} We’re bookmarking Eka for its hand crafted clothes and use of natural textiles, Samant Chauhan for his nod to traditional Indian handlooms and fabrics, Payal Singhal for her genius use with abstract graphics, heavy play with monochrome and easy, wearable separates, 431-88 for her work with timeless, elegant silhouettes, Bengali duo Dev R Nil’s interpretation of trends, and Urvashi Kaur’s effortless translation of traditional textiles. Also, we’re scoring passes to queen of kitsch Nida Mahmood’s show!

So the question is, are you runway ready? Now is the time to start fashion blogging.
