“Pirates of Calcutta. Dresses Heloise, Binodini and Ching Li. The dresses have been named fancifully from our imagination of sexy, brave heart women pirates in particular. The collection highlights blue and white ceramic, an important item of trade in all ships of that vintage,” writes Anupamaa about her collection.

The collection which took almost a month to complete is inspired by women raised in and around Calcutta which was a heady mix of different cultures owing to it being an important port for trade. French, Dutch, Portuguese, Chinese, and the English, Calcutta saw it all and the women, unaffected, intact and invincible held on to their roots absorbing and observing the world around them.
