Speaking on the occasion, Shantanu Singh said, “It was a unique experience for me as I showcased my design collections for the first time in a Bar and Cafe. The overall feel was different since I have always showcased my collections either on the stage or during runway shows. What made the show incredible was that the models were mostly new talent, some of them who will be participating in the forthcoming Miss India Beauty Pageant. In all, I showcased two collections, the first one drawing its inspiration from POP Art which was all about showing the colours of spring …joyful lively collection …detailed with cording and pleating techniques….All made from different types of silk fabric materials. The other collection that I showcased was the winter collection. …more like red carpet and party wear…couture garments which were dedicated to women empowerment, and the victory and various past and present accomplishments of women. We called it the “Golden Night” a perfect blend of Dark and Gold colour since gold has always been known to be a woman’s best friend besides being the epitome of shining glory and victory.”
