Fleming's collection, showcasing mostly evening gowns, in the palette of whites, greys and off-whites, was inspired by the Broadway musicals of New York. Her motive is to present a collection for the red carpet at Indian award ceremonies. Padukone wore a cream-coloured gown designed by Fleming.
"I think both their collections were completely different. Pia's was a lot more floral, lot more girly. Even in terms of colour, I think there were more pastel shades, whites, grey and off-white. Even the mood of the show was a lot more dreamy and musical," said Padukone. The WLIFW-AW 2010, hosted by the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI), will witness the participation of 130 designers, 75 of them also presenting shows and among whom 19 are debutants. The fashion extravaganza will feature 43 shows
