The use fashion as an art form where the designer can express feelings of emotion that has a personal narrative attached to each piece.

Her collections withhold meaning beyond the fabric, she incorporates aspects such as nature, architecture, cultures, music and their traditions. Music has a major part of her inspiration because it creates an atmosphere of feelings and emotions that help when coming up with ideas and designs.

This collection embodies this concept and it can be interpreted in many ways. However, Radha along with many others in this world witness what is happening with our society on a daily basis, how war and destruction clouds our skies and how as individuals we try and help rebuild what has been lost.
