The collection is reminiscent of the Mughal era and has a strong Jamawar influence in the collection with an essence of the Renaissance era. It has two distinct lines; opulent Victorian construction gowns and extravagant Jamawar inspired bridal couture. The dresses have a lot of texture and ruffles. Mermaid fits along with the use of peplum to construct the gowns give a fairytale like appeal. The dresses have fitted torsos which flair out at the bottom into voluminous layers. Embellished with Swarovski elements the embroidery interspersed with delicate roses and over the top use of feathers lends a very glamorous look to the ensemble.

For Bridal couture ethnicity has been fused with modern design to lure a modern bride. Deep colours like burgundy, tomato red and hot pink dominate this line. Generous use of fine fabrics such as the rich velvet and Benarasi as the base for lehengas and anarkali suits has been made.  Intense threadwork embroidery has been meticulously worked upon. Tulle and cancan is extravagantly used as an accent, to create a lacy, floating look. Enchanting cocktail sarees using shimmer chiffon captures attention. Bejewelled borders with Renaissance motifs all over as the jaal of the saree has been used.
