Their label ‘Dozakh’ attempts to interpret the vast reserves of human emotion through the art of fashion but expressed in designs that are comfortable and practical, within easy reach of the ordinary Indian woman.
Ever-rebellious in spirit, their latest collection reflects intense drama, passion and Western influences.

Teal, peach, salmon pink, red, blue and purple were the main color palettes in the ensembles, spattered liberally with black and white.
Many of the designs relied heavily on layering – lace, net and other sheer fabrics making for a delicate play against heavier textures as well as imparting a Victorian feel.

The prints, lace and embroidery were floral-inspired, upping the femininity and delicate nature of the designs.

Pumps, peep-toes and T-strap heels were the chosen accessories, jewellery of any sort being rejected altogether apart from a pair of tiny stud earrings on one model.
