Inspired by the retro glam era of the sixties, Sonam Dubal presented a collection that carefully amalgamated heritage influences with western traditions. Fabrics like chanderi, khadi, velvet and georgette were used to create fabrics in bold pastels of burnt orange, teal, pink, indigo, copper and mustard. Knitted cardigans were paired with floor-length crinkled lehengas that were clasped to the waist with chunky silver cummerbunds. Embroidered sleeves and fine tapering could be seen on wrap-up jackets and printed shift dresses. Printed bandanas were tied-up to the hair as models walked the runway wearing embroidered coats and tapered harem pants. Linear stitching could be seen on raw silk kurtas s each one was appliquéd with floral motifs and arty glitzy mirror sequins. Printed saris were lined with netted lace as off-shoulder shrugs with brocade work had a very animalistic approach. Flowy capes were slouched into daring plunges and built-up collars were adorned with jacquard as well as macramé lace. Flared sheer skirts were matched with Zari-embroidered spaghetti tops as a lot of attention was paid while carefully draping on floor-length maxis, paired with pointy leather ballerinas.
