Grassroots by Anita Dongre is the first organic clothing line in the country. The collection had reusable, eco friendly organic cottons.

Summer picnic inspired ensembles carried flower and plant motives, which were used to embellish the skirt of simple summer dresses.

Male models appeared on the ramp in casual shorts and T-Shirts. Emphasis was on natural dyes, thereby making fabrics softer.
