Victorian look hairstyle donned by the models, frilled high collared blouse teamed with a saree and a long robe like floor sweeping jackets, reminded everything about the Elizabethan era. With the collection, he intended to take the audience on a journey through centuries of Indian and Elizabethan eras of elegance and opulence.

Models sashayed down the ramp in long gowns and with extensive use of muslin in the creation of those Victorian collars, it made everything look so royal. From simplicity of muslin to extreme grandeur of rich velvets, the collection was signifying at the rich craftsmanship of both these periods. In the men’s collection, there were dhoti pants teamed with jackets, coats over kurtas, long coats with slits in beautiful paisley thread work worn over long skirts and teamed with pyjamis. A lot of kashmiri embroidery work was seen on gowns worn with short velvet jackets by the models in his show.

the Elizabethan era, and reminded of the rich and dramatic pageantry of princesses and fairy tales. Multicolored shimmer work on velvet gowns combined with muslin skirts and Elizabethan collar looked really royal and opulent.
