Known for her eclectic choice of colours and innovative textures to create layered silhouettes, Payal Khandwala's clothing line is a lesson in how to fuse drama in minimalist designs. No wonder why she is such a favourite with all our Bollywood celebs who never miss an opportunity to sport a Payal Khandwala creation whenever the occasion calls for it. Whenever you wear one of her creations, you are meant to stand out - be it the clean cuts, colour pop style or the use of rich, handwoven Indian fabrics like silk, khadi, cotton and linen.

Taking cue from the vivid imagery of Holi pigments, her SS 18 collection is all about graphic designs and celebrates unapologetically this explosion of colour in a bold feast of hot pink, scarlet red, citrine, chartreuse, electric blue and ivory, but without making them intimidating. Done in light silks and organzas, teamed with shirting cotton, she brilliantly plays around with different cuts yet keeping with clean styles.

Such as this peppy, colour block jumpsuit that Alia Bhatt picked, done in hues of bright red and purple. It's comfortable yet so stylish.

Or this easy breezy maxy dress that made Diana Penty look every bit summer perfect. Done in handwoven silk, the bright hues give it a trendy spin that's hard to look away from.

Red and pink are two bold colours, which together can bring a house down. Neha Dhupia looks fierce yet feminine in this combo, wearing a pleated colour blocked maxi dress.

Last year too, we saw many celebs wearing Payal Khandwala's standout designs. Such as Karishma Kapoor, who picked this simplistic handwoven silk kurta yet looked so stylish.

Then there was Neha Dhupia glamming it up with a pleated kaftan in graphic prints.

While Dia Mirza looked elegant in Payal's handwoven silk brocade dress.

Raveena Tandon too wore a gorgeous, colour block silk saree from Payal's SS16 collection, in peppy hues of red, pink, yellow and white, giving a modern spin to the traditional wear.
