"We usually take inspiration from the bygone and opulent Mughal and Victorian eras and have infused many elements of that period into the garments," she added.

The collection is a mix of high collared asymmetrical coats with embroidered printed pencil trousers, gowns, anarkalis, jackets and fishnet skirts with corset blouses made with cotton, satin, chiffon in the bright shades like purple, orange, pink and red.

The mother-son team feels that the combination of applique work and velvet patch work adds elegance to the line.

"We have used variety of thread embroideries as practiced in Royal Ateliers of the past. Also jackets are heavily embellished with resham and zari embroidery inspired by the bygone and opulent Mughal period.

“The dress and gowns are made of net and cotton satin lining with a combination of applique work and velvet patch work which is inspired by nature, flowers and colours," said Mayyur.

When asked about the USP of the collection, he said that they are constantly innovating.

"We are continuously evolving and this is the reason we keep on discovering new things in our range. In this way, we are trying to meet the growing demand of the discerning Indian buyer, not only within the country but also outside it," Mayyur added.

The collection is available at their store and prices start at Rs.70,000. - IANS
