Wellbeing and Nature to inspire most of the designers this season along with the ethnic influences like art and culture of Rajasthan, Gujrat, South India, Punjab and tribal prints to inspire artists mostly. We believe foliage, botanical, floral prints going to be core prints of the season.  When we talk about Indian prints and patterns, Kalamkari, Bandhani, Phulkari Leheria to influence most.  To lure young consumers quirky,  Camouflage prints to be also spotted.
