Since the Delhi Police force has a strong connection with the youth, with their Twitter handle being hugely popular among the masses, the designer made a point that the creations resonated with “people of all age groups”. All the items are khaki in colour with red and blue stripes and the Delhi Police logo, and apart from bags, the range also has apparel, cufflinks, keychains, and other fashion accessories. The merchandise will be available to the public soon, the details of which are being planned currently. 

She shares that “the police officers were very welcoming and helpful” in giving her “valuable input and support throughout”. “Every step was well thought out, and we proceeded with detailed research of design, colour, and fabrics,” says Beri, who informs us that she has offered her ideas for a new range of uniforms, too. Without disclosing much, she reveals, “Designing uniforms for the Indian police officers, is challenging given the seriousness of the work. The uniforms are inspired by the unflinching spirit of Delhi Police personnel who defy extreme conditions while giving various services to the citizens. We took into account various factors like seniority, job profile, comfort, functionality and weather, among other important parameters.”
