Using modern summer colours like blue and white, with touches of turquoise, green, bubble gum pink and lime green; Ken created a floral fantasy for his garments. Called the “Secret Garden” the silhouettes were utterly feminine with contours that were moulded and crisp giving the outfits a New Age feel.
The garments were summery with cropped tops, pleated shorts, floppy sleeves for asymmetric tunics, maxi skirts teamed with blouses for women. Men’s wear was a line-up of shorts, printed pants, shirts and muscle sleeved tunics.


Selecting the perfect showstopper, Ken had the very sultry, sexy Gauhar Khan who slinked down the ramp in a printed corset worn with a long pencil skirt seductively slit at the back.

Keeping true to her design philosophy, Tanya’s colour story moved from pastels with hints of turquoise onto men’s shirt stripes and checks. The fabrics that created the base were in very fine silk voile, cotton blends and organza. The prints were restricted to pastel block printed flowers especially created for the ensembles. Moving away from convention, Tanya added tulle with wool aari work for the layered attire.
