The collection ‘Red Phase’ by Nidhika Shekhar was inspired by the woman’s menstrual cycle journey and aimed to encourage ‘women who have been period shamed in the past’. The white and red collection was alluring and enlightening which incorporated the latest fashion trends. The asymmetry over the layering silhouettes like long coats, long maxi dresses, pants, skirts and voluminous sleeves in white and red combination did the justice to her inspiration.
The layered neck pieces and golden bracelets charmed the whole look. The polka dots were printed on the fabrics like cotton, organza and cotton silk. Neha Dhupia, actress walked the ramp for Nidhika Shekhar in an all red mid length dress and long red coat with sleek hair and black heels.
