On his design philosophy
“We encourage an unconventional approach and believe in developing and nurturing ideas. Our process allows clients to understand and create an innovative self which enables them to bring out their quirk. Our garments are made using age-old hand techniques and delivered with an intimate touch. We give individual identities a sharper and stronger voice. Many points of the subconscious converge and merge to form a silhouette.”

My vision from my actual surroundings has been carried forth to a whole new scenery of snow-clad terrains. The collection is inspired by these mountains owing to the science of nature in its most monochromatic appearance. I have explored techniques like tie and dye and crochet and produced a collection that remains androgynous at its core. Fabrics like chanderi combined with Italian crepes are a seamless marriage between Indian techniques and western silhouettes.”
