Since then, Wills Signature has grown to be the largest corporate ramp to rack collaboration. Wills Lifestyle celebrates the successful partnership with the designer duo this year with a splendid grand finale for WIFW SS’12.

The grand finale collection called ‘The Theatre of Illusions’ promises to present a whisper of seduction and a promise of excitement. This is a collection that is quintessentially modern yet uniquely original with the signature of the designers that is their very own style.

Atul Chand, Divisional Chief Executive, ITC’s Lifestyle Retailing Business Division, said, “Wills Lifestyle Grand Finale is a mix of fashion, drama and entertainment. The grand finale has always set new benchmarks in creativity and has showcased the best of Indian fashion talent.”

As one of the most popular and successful designer duos in the country and my personal favorite, they are sure to bring a contemporary collection elevated by unconventional style and innovative cuts. Their collection is bound to be a stunner.”

Speaking on the occasion, Rohit Gandhi-Rahul Khanna said, “It is indeed an honor and privilege to be the Wills Lifestyle grand finale designer once again. The Indian fashion industry being at a very promising stage and making an impression on the global fashion map requires steady support from corporates like ITC to grow, and it is great to see Wills Lifestyle’s collaboration with the fashion fraternity to take the celebration of the event to their consumers continuously.”
