New year looks: Hot bikinis, floral prints

It was a weekend of revelry and celebrations as the first ever BeYu Fashion Awards to honour Indian designers was held on November 14-15 in Bangalore. Sponsored by Elder Health Care, the awardees this year were veterans Krishna Mehta and Neeta Lulla, who showcased their work alongside many young and upcoming names.

All the fashion shows at the event stuck to one of two themes -- Disco Stars and the New Year Look. We start off with a glimpse of Sanchita's new line. This young designer has worked with big names like Roberto Cavalli and Etro and showcased a beachwear line at the awards. So if you're heading to the beaches of Goa, you know who to call!

This is supposed to be the New Year Look from Zubair Kirmani. We're not quite sure if there are any parties in our social diaries with an Indian dress code, but surely there must be a dozen-odd weddings to go to... and the sherwani is the thing to wear this season!

Raj Shroff, one of the most promising designers in Bangalore chose to go with floral prints and black 'n' white. And no, we aren't really complaining.

Designer Namrata G, also from Bangalore, combines the shrug with a sexy cocktail dress. We love the colour, we love the pattern. But we're not quite sure about the swastikas along the hemline, what say?

Duo Jason and Anshu also recently showed at the Wills Lifetyle India Fashion week in Delhi. They presented one of their lines in Bangalore too, although we don't quite know what to make of this particular dress.
