Shantanu and  Nikhil combined their draping mastery and penchant for ladylike silhouettes with crimson, which doubled-down the statement-making. The designer-duo put an elegant spin on the Victorian shapes and impeccably blended the Indian drapes with bold sweetheart necklines. The head-to-toe crimson look made it all outstanding!
