Signature Style: The mantra is to make it luxe and retain the minimal. We use natural silks and cottons and work with traditional handcraft. Our forte is hand embellishment and surface ornamentation and we are very strongly supported by our artisan team in the interiors of Uttar Pradesh.
Biggest compliments: Our clients come back for more, a lot of them almost every other day. That, for me is an achievement.
Latest Festive trends: This festive season we have done a lovely pret line of soft Silks with our signature textures and forte of hand embellishments.
Colours in vogue: The colours are rich Jewel tones, the silhouettes are smart and crisp and the Indian ethos peeps out from each style. People are binging on colour this season. From the softest of blushes and creams to stark contrasts of Aubergines and Emeralds, everything is happily allowed!
