Payal Jain said, "The soul of this collection lies in its random, unexpected, bohemian aesthetic…I have allowed myself to wander wherever my imagination took me. I cannot define specific colors, silhouettes, fabrics, embroideries, as I have not followed any of those norms or direction. This season’s look is an eclectic blend of organic fabrics, vivid colors, eccentric combinations, warm details, random weaves, bold checks, vibrant prints and experimental treatments, all of which co-exist in complete harmony."

"This has been an inward journey, deep into my heart, where I have revisited my most intense emotions that normally lie buried in everyday life. In 'Forbidden Love', I have found expression to my love, lust, pain, anger, desire, joy, fear, disappointment, heartbreak, acceptance, contentment, and celebration.It has been a fulfilling journey of Love and celebration of Life," she added.
