The embellishments on the garments take their cue from the luscious classicism of Mackintosh-inspired botanical gardens in a rose-shaped cornice of hand-cut petals that creep onto hems and necklines.

Her collection includes Milhazes' tropical rhythms and grooves enmeshed with opulent modernism that blurs the boundaries between translucent and opaque. It comes in satin georgette and paper silk. The collection titled, ‘protagonists’, from the animal kingdom is woven around myth and bejewelled fantasy on a labyrinth of gossamer cotton.
There are also ballet shoes, sandals and bags in worked-on canvas, napa and nylon with unfinished woven meshes. One will get to see the classic styles revisited, fitted and rounded silhouettes. More structured styles with lowered hemlines, reinvented with folds, pleats and ornamental details will be the order of the day. 

The colours will be bright from mustard, nutmeg, cayenne, sesame, cumin and rhododendron. “It’s fresh and not colour co-ordinated. There’s a splash of colours and the garments are fluid. There are oversized T-shirts and dresses with mystical animal beasts printed on them,” Sanchita told Metrolife.
