“I have been showcasing western wear for many years now, so I wanted to do different. I enjoy doing Indian designs now and since Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) gave me an opportunity to do a solo show, so I took it up,” Siddhartha told reporters.

Pieces for women comprised of royalty-inspired jackets, kali lehengas, anarkalis, saris and elegant gowns.
The designer’s signature style boasts of the intricate appliqué technique, bold stripwork as well as precious crystals and elaborate sequin work. The colour palette varied from subtle creams, beiges and vintage rose to rich rustic colors such as steel greys and maroons. “My bride is empowered and free-thinking.

There was a lot of shimmer in the collection and the designer said that he “loves it” “That will never go from my designs,” he said.
