Yes, the week that we've all been eagerly waiting for is finally here! Ace designer Gaurav Gupta kick started the Lakmé Fashion Week summer/resort 2019, yesterday with his collection The (Un)folding which displays structured sari gowns, designs and constructed dresses. The star-studded event was organised at the Royal Opera House, Mumbai.
Following that, the fashion week is gearing up to witness a plethora of designers including Rohit Bal, Anita Dongre, Shantanu and Nikhil, who are all set to showcase their designs.
For Gaurav Gupta, veteran filmmaker Karan Johar and gorgeous actress Tabu were seen walking down the ramp in his amazing creations. While Tabu opened Gupta’s show in an icy blue off-shoulder gown, Johar was looking dapper in a red blazer with black and silver detailing.
A show at a venue like the Royal Opera House demands a performance. Gaurav Gupta (@gauravguptaofficial) delivered on the theatrics with his opening show for @lakmefashionwk titled ‘The (Un)folding’ which saw Tabu (@tabutiful) starting the presentation and Karan Johar (@karanjohar) closing. As poet Navkirat Sodhi recited live verse, models walked down the runway in structured couture, some glimmering in silks and embellishments, others highlighting the beauty of chikankari. Between gowns, pantsuits and lehenga hybrids the designer ensured there wasn’t a dull moment. As Gupta completes 15 years in the industry, Sodhi captured his unique creative spirit while talking about “killing pain with couture” through the show. Head to our Instagram Stories for more.
Tabu's sequin and floral detailing durely had our eyes, but on the other hand, Karan's overall look with matching pants was everything that anyone was talking about! Both the prominent personalities looked fun and edgy!
Interestingly, this year Gaurav Gupta marks his 15th year anniversary in the industry and honestly, there couldn't have been a better way to celebrate his journey!
Talking about his collection, Gupta wrote on Instagram, "As a designer, I find it interesting to challenge myself. This time, we’re working on a collection that infuses traditional techniques like Chikankari with the brand’s signatures like sculpted draping and structured fluidity. By doing this, we’re giving new meaning to centuries-old crafts and telling the story of modern India in a new way.”
Also, poet Navkirat Sodhi recited a few verses and helped in creating an unforgettable experience. Stay tuned to know what the other designers have in store for you!
