The best part of IRW 17 is that every design shared a unique touch to it through the stream of thought which backs it and Clotho was not a deviation. The best part was that Clotho desired to portray the collection as an extension of the feminine identity, not as a trend but as an intrinsic characteristic of herself. Thus it amalgamates its designs with the lotus in its multiple forms, that forms a predominant part in Tribana Padma’s collection, dealing with the ‘chakras’ and the several forms of feminine mysticism.

Egyptian themes and pastels also ruled the ramp through the collection hands of Delhi based Designer- Ankur jAmun-Ra (hidden light) as the name is popularly known as was the vibrant mix of 5D Egyptian beetles as well as Egyptian Gods.
