Their choice of colours coupled with breathtaking embellishments and luxurious fabrics, created magic on the runway. Tea-dipped ivories, morning sunshine yellows, apple greens and fossilized blues spoke the loudest against prints of pressed flowers on parchment base.

Play of transparencies and opacities, lace like patterns, botanical floral appliqué work and embroidery took the collection to a whole new level. Fabrics were rich and soft—silky taffetas and heavy jerseys punctuated by intricate laser cuts.

Lastly, accessories gave the whole look, a somewhat gothic feel. Bold earrings, black ribbons, sprayed flower wreaths, ballerina shoes, knots, lace cuffs and halo-like head pieces added to the rather somber mood.
