Kolkata’s scenic backdrops and imprints who have left a never changing impact in his mind is what comes through beautifully in all his creations. Traditional and very ‘Indian’ is his style and he makes the most of it. Gypsies, deserts, the classic use of fabrics, textiles, and embroideries get beautifully woven to each sari, lehenga or salwar kameez, which are his areas of expertise.

Fusion of different patchwork designs on vibrant colors is his trademark.
