With bright colours, especially bold pinks, reds and oranges, with vibrant, clashing prints, layers, frills and plenty of fabric walking down the runway, this was a show guaranteed to put you in a great mood!

There was clearly a big Indian influence and with sight and sound accounted for, you’d be forgiven for thinking you had just been immersed in a Bollywood film, where glamour and wearability stood side by side.

Electrifying. Delicate. Beautiful. Traditional, yet modern.

We were enamoured by their entire collection! It was also a major plus that the designers booked mostly ethnic models to wear their designs complimenting their mesmerising designs.
