The collection draws its inspiration from the work of master photographer Edward Burtynsky. His photographs engage the observer through what the artist refers to as a “duality” in the viewing process, captured effortlessly with digital prints, velvet patchwork and asymmetric piping. In Burtynsky’s aesthetic interpretation, his images render the subject most often in rich colour, detail, and textural qualities. The same is interpreted in the collection through shades of blue and grey, and dark brown with a textural play of fabrics such as cotton viscose, chambray, and velvet.

  “If dreams were made out of stone, it would be Hampi” The collection draws its inspiration from the beautiful architectural shapes of ‘Hampi’, one of the most popular tourist destinations in India. The name Hampi can also mean "champion". Truly a champion in its own right, the charismatic monumental beauty of the place and wonderful architectural structures are truly intriguing - an experience in itself. Their large dimension, bold and delicate carvings, stately pillars, traditional mythological motifs and magnificent pavilions forms the elements of this collection.

Titled “Bold and beautiful”, the collection is a gripping tale of high fashion Glamour, Honour and most importantly the Attitude. Inspired by the masculine structure, unique style of Harley Davidson and aspects such as royalty, power and boldness of Knight Armour, the collection uses details such as zipper stripes, metallic rivets, buttons, studs, and highlights in a tough fabric story of leather, ship-Napa, goat softy and denim.

The Spring summer 2015 collection takes its inspiration from cherry blossom. Known as “Sakura” in Japanese, the Cherry blossom trees are common in Japan and are an integral part of native Japanese culture. The garments beautifully depict the shapes of cherry blossom flowers and structures of cherry blossom trees. The designer has painted the prints herself on different fabrics like taffeta organza and Chinese silk to create a range of contemporary pieces such as jackets, dresses, skirts, trousers.
