Inspiration strikes in the most unlikely of places. The designer had one such experience a few days ago while travelling in a humble auto rickshaw. It suddenly struck the designer that RICKSHAWS OF MUMBAI are an art in themselves. Auto rickshaws play an important role of public transport in Mumbai. There are 246,458 black and yellow metered auto rickshaws, often simply called 'Autos'.

The collection is inspired by the tough exteriors and soft humility of the rickshaws. The designer was inspired by the structure of rickshaw, tough and hard and the play of only two colours: BLACK and YELLOWTo stay true to the inspiration, the designer used the two colours in designs, yellow and black. These two simple colours make a statement. They define the vehicle. The collection is original, unconventional, unique and quirky for women, ranging between the age group of 20 to 35. The collection includes structured tops which are best suited to mature women and leather pants, spandex leggings, printed leggings and long skirts which can be styled with both Indian and Western wear. 

The fabrics used are flowy, airy and sheer i.e. Chiffon, Georgette which flatter all body types juxtaposed with leather, spandex, raw silk to lend a touch of edge.
