Confessing on how she has not stuck to a particular theme, the Delhi-based designer says, "My collection is a blend of retro influences. My range is diverse and I have picked liberally from all around."
One could easily notice clean cuts, straight silhouettes in the designer's line. The separates were dressy, appealing and equally wearable. Balloon and chikan work skirts till knees and round neck dresses looked sparkling.

Interesting use of stripes, checks and polka dots were used in one-piece dresses. Satin waist belts, inspired by the European culture, were common on most of the clothes. Jute and net were worn over net shirts and skirts.
Trench coats in brocade, silk and net had floral embroidery on them, which came across as stylish. Net and sequined tops were teamed with frill shrugs. A riot of crème, white, black, dull green, hot pink, turquoise, purple, orange formed the eclectic mix of color sequence.
The fabrics were suave and well put together. They ranged from soft velvets and nets to fluid satins to rich brocade. Some bizarre headgears in fuschia pink, fluorescent green and electric blues were used, which were in stark contrast with the creations. Also, pearl beaded long neck-pieces were worn over the outfits.
