Sanchita Ajjampur's collection "The Mythical Garden" drew inspiration from the 50's and the 60's. Fabrics were a combination of neoprene Lurex, jacquards, gold wash lace, georgettes, sheer chiffons and crepes. The silhouettes were dramatic and to some extent practical, including kimono shapes, cinched waists, asymmetric reinvented poodle skirts, trapeze, drop waist and flapper dresses.

Detailing of the garments was in the form of plaited and knotted tapes, cord and soft thread layers. Decorative feather shapes and punch fabrics added a shredded or lacy look to the dresses. For menswear, the inspiration was "Bull Dogging Bill Pickett goes Bollywood", as the Indian Designer revived the Wild West era using native American graphic touches and layering of fabrics.
