This theme compromised lots of colours, prints, cowls, hand work, tribal accessories. Few collections like ‘The KHADI STORY’ and ‘PAITHANI’ were influenced by the ‘MAKE IN INDIA’ concept and Pride of Maharashtra. Ranging from inherently Indian inspirations to futurism the student designers were primed up to put their best foot forward.
