In the mesmerizing era of 70s Bollywood, where every frame was a symphony of glitz, glamour, and larger-than-life personas, a new wave of expression was born. Picture bell-bottoms swaying to funky beats, oversized sunglasses hiding enigmatic gazes, and blazers exuding effortless coolness under disco lights. This was the era that set the stage for Tan Ki Jawala '24 by Doh Tak Keh — a collection that doesn't just embrace the nostalgia of that groovy time but redefines it with a modern twist.

The essence of Tan Ki Jawala '24 lies in its homage to the vibrant pulse of Mumbai's streets, where every corner tells a tale of resilience and creativity.

From quaint vintage cafes to the bustling energy of street food carts, each piece in this collection captures the soul of amchi Mumbai in vibrant prints bursting with personality and charm.

One standout piece from the collection is the 'Pydhonie Corset,' a true work of art where fashion meets creativity. Crafted from scrap materials transformed into a canvas of glam, this corset is like wearing an edgy oil painting adorned with discarded treasures, beads, crystals, and stones. It's a celebration of imperfection and individuality, making a bold statement wherever it goes.
