"It's only apt on a night like this, in the presence of so many luminaries from the Indian fashion industry that we remember Wendell Rodricks. He was the pioneer, he was a visionary of Indian fashion and he will always and forever be missed," said Priyanka. Rodricks was reportedly scheduled to showcase his work at the fashion event.

The hour-long event kickstarted with Priyanka, a brand representative for Blenders Pride, walking the ramp. The models then walked the ramp and showcased the latest in Indian fashion by honouring the event's theme The Pride Of India, which aimed to portray the blending of Indian cultures.
