The designers’ signature style represents an interesting paradox of rural craft and exalted design – highly distressed surface treatments are juxtaposed with fine hand embroideries and the silhouettes enhanced with a contemporary spin!

The collection finds inspiration in the designersí love for old textiles and their sublime leitmotifs. A riot of motifs – the French Paisley, Baroque chandeliers and curios, Arabesque cartouches, flowering blooms and trellises from Pichwai paintings, hunting scenes from Afghan carpets and Samarkand rugs, Byzantine mosaics, the Palampore ‘Tree of Life’, and Mughal miniatures are used by the designers in a painterly fashion and rendered onto the ensembles, using traditional kasab, resham and kachi-patti embroideries.

Saba Qamar walked the ramp as the designers’ show stopper. Speaking on the same, Rimple and Harpreet mentioned, “Saba is the quintessential actress and an inspiration to women across the border. She has a sublime earthiness to her persona and makes for the perfect muse for our collection.”
