Her designs are meticulously researched, inspired, and crafted, emphasising uniqueness, silhouette, and fabric.
Sangeeta’s strongest inspirations come from the Kutch Bhuj regions of Gujarat, particularly the marodi embroidery showcased on her signature abhas. This embroidery, featuring handmade gold thread on luxurious fabrics, reflects the traditional costume of Kutch. The studio’s creations pay homage to ancient times when Kutch women wore tie and dye abhas with intricate zari, using fabrics like atlas of Gajji or fine Chinese silk.
