“My collection is called ‘Indica Emporia’. I used the Latin word because I wanted to go back in time. The fashion of India has always been a great provider of textile and culture. It takes my philosophy ahead of being diverse,” he said about the collection. “You are used to seeing the garments in a certain way that I felt like giving the garments modern avatar in a contemporary way.”

An example? They have taken traditional garments like a ‘dhoti’ and converted it into a ‘dhoti jumpsuit’ with a sari. We also saw the models wearing ‘ghagras’, saris with floor length cape blouses, tunics & churidars, farshi pyjamas.
