The Spring Summer 2019 collection is a tribute to the Indonesian Batik fabric designing. Batik is a “resist process” used for making designs on the fabrics. While majority of the collection comprised of prêt pieces in colours black, gold and greys, the collection also had a few couture statement styles. Pooja used this technique on suede, silk, crepe cotton fabrics that dominated the runway.

Wax was used by the designer to prevent it from penetrating the cloth, thereby leaving “blank” areas in the dyed fabric. This process of using wax and then dye has helped in the formation of beautiful designs with multiple colours to choose from.
