The designer kept it all white for this summer collection. She structured the fabric into midis, fringed tops and extravagant skirts and gowns. The neat cut outs revealing the right amount of skin at the right parts clicked well with the all-white style. Flickering in between was beige shade and the patterns were self-colored and hence the collection had a great elegance maintained all through.
Spend some time here to understand the most creative and geometric collection displayed by the designer. With repeats, lines angles she created an intriguing concept that were tailored focusing on circles, triangles and parallelograms. Using textiles like cottons, linens, light weight silks, handcrafted brocades, she brought in a collection purely designed by artisans from Varanasi and Bengal who included motifs in gold and silver thread. Accessories also played a great part in her collection. Brass and leather were the materials in use for accessories that took form of rings, necklaces, earrings, nose pins, bangles and anklets.
