The entire runway show was dedicated to Nepal, having various dresses in shades of lemon, peach, tea rose and variations of orange and yellow. The dark colors were rarely to see. White lovely dresses embroidered in orange and yellow, and chiffon evening gowns that floated down with full skirts falling in soft folds were found very effective.

There were also modern clothes in beautiful cuts and flowing fabrics drawn from a palette of saffron, vermilion, oranges, blush, black, and white. A mesmerizing orange sequined dress, delicate form-fitting knits in orange and yellow stripes and plenty of fringing became a major highlight this season on the runway of New York Fashion Week.

Witnessing all these scene were Oscar-winning actress and singer Jennifer Hudson, Hailee Seinfeld, Laverne Cox, reality star Kylie Jenner, and the Bush twins Jenna and Barbara, daughters of former president George W. Bush.
