The show was a mother and child initiative where mothers of today showed that they are not less than models themselves. Pooja Gogia, Seema Diwan, & Jyotika Chhabra walked the ramp with their little ones who too were flaunting designs from Nitya`s kids wear line.

The eminent personalities who attended the events were Aamir Zakhir, Sylvie, Ayush Mehra, Rahil Tandon, Jyotika Chhabra, Rupam Malik, Pawan Sachdeva, Preeti Ghai, Ritu Singh & Romala Bachchan to name a few…

Angels depicted in the cathedral and the white arches in baroque carvings portray shades of white highlighted with floral embroidery and lacework. The pearl palette merges into shades of gold and copper with olive and ochre colors taken from the church frescos. These are depicted with intricate beadwork and sequins ending the collection in the palette of maroons and crimsons.

The entire collection celebrates femininity with alot of floral depictions in the collection in terms of threadwork, prints, digital printing and lacework. The collection also shares hints of transparency with fabric interplay by lace, tulle, georgettes, organzas and chiffons.

Speaking on the occasion Designer Nitya Bajaj says, “Fashion is an individual statement and a designer enhances that individuality with his/her signature. My label celebrates womanhood, the feminity, the elegance and the power of being a SHE.”

Inspired by the interiors of Kloster Catherdral in Germany, the collection celebrates the beauty of its amazing architecture, attractive frescos, marble and gilded gold walls. It is a hand trick as the light radiates inwards from several windows concealed behind a ledge, and the ceiling is in fact completely flat.
