According to runner up Srijita Ghosh from Kolkata, the styling inspired by anime and fictional characters from the gaming world would be a huge trend in the future. For her second ensemble, she showcased a ravishing look using 5 different tops and called out print on print as a big fashion trend. Ekanshi Singhal from Ahmedabad put together two spectacular ensembles to highlight her concept of ‘casual is the new formal’ and showcased how bright colours will never go out of vogue!
