New Delhi: Model-turned-actor Dino Morea chose to support his friend Rina Dhaka from the front row rather than walking on ramp as the designer showcased her Autumn-Winter collection at the ongoing Wills India Fashion Week (WIFW).

The 37-year-old actor, who had walked for Dhaka at the first edition of Wills back in 2000 along with Aditi Govitrikar, said that he relived his modeling days while watching the show today. "It is such a great feeling to come to Rina's show. I have always liked her clothes and I must congratulate her for putting together such amazing clothes for the show," Dino said.

Dressed in a smart blue shirt and grey trousers, Dino said that he consulted Rina before wearing the casual outfit for today's show.

Rina's collection illustrated the contemporary style. The designs delved into ancestral Indian textiles which were scanned to create digital prints for the fabrics with cultivated patterns. The ensembles featured straight shifts and drop waist silhouettes, the popular empire line dresses with black as the reigning colour.
    
The materials used were chiffons, georgettes, organzas and stretch fabrics. which were festooned with prints of monochrome paisley, red and yellow ikat, tweed. The contemporary dresses with puff organza sleeves was reminiscent of the '90s. The primary colours used were blends of grey, maroon, black and white.
