Archana brilliantly managed to add the slightest of details from the tea experience like, the doilies and the vintage china sets in majority of her garments. She kept the colour palette subtle with hues like, dull yellow, blush pink, hints of teal, dark blue and the classic black and white stripes.

Newspaper print detailing was an added highlight that brought out materials like, transparent capes, barely opaque shirts and floral appliqués. Nonetheless, her label brings forth a beautiful nuptial of the past and the present, with under currents of vintage charm.
