How would you describe your collection?
The collection is self-created. We have made our own prints, drawn them by hand and then enlarged them by using modern technology. We have created this hand-drawn, hand-painted effect on cloth in a very 70s or late 60s mood. It's fresh and new, and it's primarily our story!

Manish Malhotra
How would you describe your collection?
The collection showcases Indian evening wear where you'll see an amalgamation of the traditional with the contemporary. The collection embraces Indian crafts like chikankari and kashmiri embroidery and integrates them with Rajasthani gota borders.

Anamika Khanna
How would you describe your collection?
It's a collection, rich in colour and style. It's bold and sophisticated in its appeal. Our culture is very deep as far as inspiration is concerned but mine is a complete western wear line.
