Dutta's creations have always been a celebration of Indian heritage and craftsmanship with each piece meticulously handcrafted from pure silk. She has previously presented her creations, which seamlessly blend tradition with modernity, on international platforms such as the New York Fashion Week 2022 and the Paris Fashion Week 2023, where she managed to grab the attention of global fashion influencers, enthusiasts and critics.

Speaking about presenting at the Milan Fashion Week, Dutta told Republic, "Like New York Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week last two years, this year I am going to showcase my dresses in Assam silk at the prestigious Milan Fashion Week on February 24. My designs will be purely of Assam silk, both in ethnic and modern, predominantly in white. The collection is named 'Kahua Komal' which means tender-soft in Assamese."
