Boheme by Kanwal - Kathputli Tamasha collection was inspired by the puppet shows she frequented as a child. Models walked down the ramp in pieces that were exquisite, colorful, creative, well thought of and had carefully knit puppet displays in detailed hand embroidery. Every piece was made so intricately that one couldn’t help but be in awe. The use of colorful threadwork paired with mirrorwork made her ensembles stand out.
