The collection was inspired by the status of progressive women in India’s changing social scenario and is also an ode to the widows of Banaras. Not surprisingly, white was the choice of color for this collection, with the silhouettes displaying a fusion of traditional and contemporary styles.
The collection featured ensembles that were both sensuous and structured. Masaba choose to play with four fun prints on a range of apparel, namely – people, tulips, table fans and roses.
