Tripunto: focused on embroidered detailing reflecting the imperial era in its stitching details.

The Naurattan Line: showcased white outfits with multi coloured embroidery

The Empress: depicted the regal and more formal line with rich embroideries with a style emphasis on embellished jackets.

In essence, the Velocity silhouette this season introduced flowy structures with details found in pleating, puckering and fringes. The house of Saadia Mirza based this Autumn/Winter line on versatile fabrics including raw silks, chiffons and georgettes with detailed texturing, printing and embellishments.
