Going by the theme of the fashion line, 'A Celebration of Rural India', his collection had a rural touch to all the garments that included cotton saris with embroidery, salwar kameezes, khadi kurtas, sherwanis for men and subtle yet graceful lehengas.
The stars added their own bit to the evening while they walked the ramp.

Many celebrities from the B town were present to cheer the designer. They included Vidya Balan, Siddarth Roy Kapur, Amrita Rao, Riteish and Genelia, Shatrugan Sinha and Rohit Roy.
