How do you feel about the new Winter Festive theme of FPW for the first time showcasing all luxury and bridal theme collections?

I think it’s a great concept, as people tend to buy more in winter and they are mostly looking for wedding or formally evening wear to wear for wedding and parties. So it’s a great idea.

Tell us a bit more about your collection and one thing in particular you’d like to share with readers about it?

Our collection this time is titled “La vie en Rose”. We very excited to be doing this collection, I feel that it’s got a great depth and feel of a very vintage rose. Something that women could relate to very well.


What kind of fabrics, color palette and technique have you used to create the designs?

Fabrics are silk chiffon crepe pure Georgette , we used allot of khara embroidery. Appliques been done separately and then the motifs have been put on top to create 3D effect. And we done our own lace we’ve created our self so we done allot of different techniques to create this, the color palette is very interesting it’s from peaches to pink to aubergine to black. With allot of gold thrown in, so it’s a very regal evening wear collection.
