In Chinese art, magnolia flowers symbolize feminine, sweetened beauty. With just that serving as Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia’s main inspiration, their collection was full of fresh, pretty clothes done in various flower motifs.

A short tunic with round hems was embellished with floral eyelets, while contrasting mini blooms were embroidered on a peplum top worn with cropped, roomy pants. A large abstract sequined flower came on a cropped top with matching flared miniskirt.

For a sharper look, the designers worked denim into a sleeveless zippered top with back cutouts and paired with pleated shorts.
