This being a festive collection for the upcoming party and new year season, we have created silhouettes in a palette of bright colours. These are further embellished using traditional embroidery techniques on chiffons, georgettes, crepes and nets.”
And what is the USP of the Trupsel label? “Well, you can say that our designs epitomize an international look with an Indian soul,” say the young designers.
