I have tried to bring the essence of Mother Nature into my collection through its natural beauty and simplicity,” Tejas said.  

Tejas’s collection blends the colour of desire, mystery, richness, fertility and purity depicting the different characters and aspirations of woman.  Tejas has used loads of nets, laces, hand-woven silks, taffeta silks to add the oomph factor to his A-lines.

For his fitted garments he had used black and champagne, for his structured and voluminous evening and cocktail dresses he had used wine, red and green colours. But Still Black was the most dominating of all colours he had used. On being asked the reason he said “Black is one of the most gorgeous colours for women. It also one of the most favopurite shade for evening and night wears.”

His 32 dresses with an overflowing use of 1000 metres of various fabric makes for a riot of colours, designs and cuts that make for a complete woman Mademoiselle.

Tejas also said that he wanted to do something new this time as he had on the regular trend last year. Having a different impact was also one of the reason he arranged the innovative live music fand thus roped in the only only electro-fusion of its kind in the city. The title of the music   ‘Rising Venus’ was also quite apt to the myth that the planet Venus represent womanhood and the show ‘Mademoiselle’ was intended to potray the elevation of the so called weaker gender.

The show was followed by a grand after party where Tejas was seen with a pleasant smile tagged to his lips which reflected his success for the show.
