October 15, 2020 16:54 IST

Nitin Bal Chauhan showcased his latest collection at the Lotus Make-up India Fashion Week, Spring/Summer 2021.

NAEVUS is inspired by the Jallianwala Bagh massacre that occurred on April 13, 1919.

'This collection is a humble tribute to THE MARTYRS OF JALLIANWALA BAGH,' the designer wrote, while unveiling his collection online.

Check out his collection:

The colour palette and style took us back in time to a bygone era. There were bright red hues inspired heavily from British army uniforms.

Bold prints, grunge textures with detailed hand embroidery and military styling were the highlights of Nitin's collection.

The models added some drama with makeup and wild expressions.

Don't miss the interesting use of headgear and props for effect to remind us of the pain and pathos of the martyrs who inspired the collection.
