Although serious in structure with their solid geometric forms, the pieces graced the runway in bold, bright shades such as vibrant tangerine, bumble bee yellow, sky blue, and peacock green with certain sections being in darker tones such as midnight blue and black.
Designer Karishma Shahani Khan made use of natural fabrics such as khadi, jute, silk and cotton; fusing luxury with simplicity in a unique and adorable way. Sequins and embroidery along with quilting and beadwork helped add a glam touch to the pieces.
Muted orange toned lips and cheeks along with tied up hair tastefully done by Lakmé beauty salon experts helped add a sensual touch.
