Kotwara by Meera and Muzaffar Ali is a collection that brings to mind images of languid summer  afternoons, sipping khus sherbat and listening to sufi music, laying on rose-water sprinkled crisp white cotton sheets under mango and neem trees.

The pristine white cottons and silver tissues are crafted into classic uncluttered forms of crinkled lehenga-skirts, loose sheer pajamas, straight kurtas and long draped odhnis. The white on white hand embroideries and appliqué borders were used effectively along with silver 'mokesh' work, which dotted the ensembles. An element of colour was brought in with the next line in a pastel palette of mint, powder pink, orange, peach and leaf green. Delicate murri embroidery of the chikankari family was used to create flowers, also enhanced with silver  'mokesh'.

Dressy but equally subtle were the chiffon lehengas and cholis in colours of rose, peach, pink, mauve, red, and green, as also the silk kurtas with boxy straight loose Aligarhi pajamas in brocade. The finale consisted of rich South Indian silk sarees with gold temple borders and pallas, enhanced with mythological bird motifs. The colours were as ornamental - jewel shades of green, blue, maroon, and orange.

They also launched a new range called Khak, made of cottons and linens. Coloured in natural hues of indigo, army greens, and browns, it consisted of jodhpur pants, waistcoats, jackets, short sleeved shirts and textured skirts.
