You can tell the favourites at any fashion week by the size of the crowd outside the doors before any given show. Gaurav Gupta is one such popular man! It was a full house; there were still people outside struggling to get in just before the show started. No kidding! And then the drama began! Gupta’s garments always seem to have a futuristic vibe. Be it in the construction, structure or draping, it always looks like it’s just ahead of the curve.
The theme called ‘Scape Song’ wasof fluid structures, of frozen waves, creating new cultures of where we are. Sculptures scaping referrals to Greek, Roman, Indian and English.
Bridal couture in association with Swarovski crystals in the latest innovation of Crystal fine mesh inspiring ever more dazzling expressions of creativity. Fancy stones in diverse shapes creatively compliment the denim Blue, Black diamond, and clear crystal shades of the mesh. The shimmer of the crystals come alive in the most fascinating way in colors of light amethyst, rosaline, provence lavender, off -white, cherry, blue, waiting green, and vintage rose, that added bling to the light hues.
The multi-layered skirts, draped saris, gowns, jackets and sari-lehengas all swished and swooshed down the runway, all the while glistening as the light caught at different points. Another classic Gaurav Gupta touch is the sculpted fit of his garments that he achieves through techniques like boning so that the construction of the silhouette is contemporary and modern!
Romantic ruffles, strapless gowns, tassels and fringes with Swarovski elements were the highlights of the show.
This is the new age royal- progressive yet rooted. A show which is still lingering in our minds.
