This year’s theme of their collection was inspired by native Tahitian prints, colours and motifs. It incorporated the stunning natural beauty; beautiful floral landscapes and bohemian style of Tahitian women with an eclectic French Polynesian flavor. The show was also attended by Bollywood actresses such as Sai Tamhankar and Akanksha Puri.

The garments were easy flowing silhouettes having a soft handloom chanderi, cotton, matka, a woven bapta silk and chiffon texture with vibrant colours straight out of works of the master of avant-garde Paul Gauguin.

This was their second season at the Lakme Fashion Week. The brand made their debut in 2013 which brought them accolades galore. They had showcased their spring summer collection which was a unique ‘Boho-chic-meets-cyber cool’ line at the Talent Box during Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2013.


Launched in 2010, GARO is known for its bold tribal prints and motifs that reflect the ancient traditions of Indian craftsmanship in a contemporary vocabulary. ‘GARO’ designs aim at the Indian woman who is modern yet rooted with traditions, nuanced yet bold, eclectic yet discerning, strong yet demure, who dares to experiment but with refinement, class and confidence. The designer duo uses unconventional fabrics, texturing and detailing, bold prints and motifs with glamorous embellishments in a vibrant varied colour palette that showcases the essence of Indian tradition and blends it carefully with fleeting modernity.
