“Gowns with detailing at the waist to accentuate the curves of the hips will be in vogue. We can expect a lot of layering as well,” says Hemant. According to Nikhil, “I hope to see gowns with trails on the red carpet. The styling will be minimal.”

Nikhil says, “I think satin will be the fabric of choice for gowns. Satins give off a vibe of luxury and seduction, which our ladies love.” Chiffons, crepes and georgettes will be other favourites.

Hemant opines, “We will see gowns with a sheer effect. I think the slits will be back too. The off-shoulder gown is here to stay.”

“I think gowns will be extremely feminine in 2015 — like straight out of a dream sequence. The necklines will be simple,” opines Nikhil.
