The clothing line presents a range of exotic occasion wear textured with softly coloured pearls and sequins on arabesque forms.
The collection will showcase innovated forms of Chikankari, Zardozi, Aari and Muqqaish, including the creation of silhouettes, with fine muslin, sheer chiffons that blend with velvet and brocade.
