Comprising 25 dramatic silhouettes in the form of gowns with bustles and trains, voluminous lehengas and new concept saree gowns, the entire collection takes on a pastel colour palette. The light & luminescent tones draw from the ethereal backdrop in a spectrum of soft hues including pearl whites, ecru, prismatic pinks and soft blues.
