The look moved to a simple dress, then onto draped maxis, shirt dresses with attached cowls, saris worn with soft kurtas, kaftans, some basic blouses and a jacket with embroidered calligraphy.

There was understated beauty about the creations as the prints were very subdued but gave an interesting appeal to the entries.
