Noushija Fatiz, a Kerala based designer also showcased her collection called Fatiz, which saw a heavy influence of the Mughal era in its style, material and cuts. The heavy lehengas and gowns reflected the Mughal romance and the colours brought out deep toned structures. Bollywood celebrity of Jaane tu ya jaane na fame, Manjari Fadnis was the showstopper for Fatiz.

Shravan Kumar kept minimalistic design patterns, beige and cream colours as his palette for the collection. It reflected the purity of Indian cultures with a rich heritage. The sarees were embellished with gold and silver and the men's collection was largely designed for an indo-western look. A lot of jacket over kurtas made a comeback in Shravan's designs. The patterns were simplistic yet elegant.

Designer and stylist Sanaa Khan closed day 2 of DFL with a stunning collection inspired by the silk route. Inspired by florals and fitted cuts, the collection was a contemporary ode to the ancient network of trade routes for cultural interactions. The designs and materials were a mix of work inspired by various ancient Asian cities that formed a big part of the fashion revolution. The colour theme was minimalistic, the collection was a mix of blue, white and black. Beautiful flower patterned kurtas, legging pants with work, sheer patialas and embellished jackets added charm to the collection.

Bright hues were the flavour of the season for the budding designer duo, Sukriti and Aakriti on day 3. The collection had a lot of bright yellows, blues, greens and gold over blacks. Their bohemian style kurtas, lehengas and palazzos brought back Bollywood of 60's and 70's to DFL's ramp. Gota work in gold and silver hues added a touch of elegance to the beautiful creations. The outfits were comfortable and showcased a major influence from boho-chic designs. The collection saw soft fabrics used with carefully designed embellishments making the collection a hit with those looking for occasion wear.
