By the looks of it, Gaurav Gupta is on a mission to challenge the aesthetics of the Indian masses by his avant-garde, larger-than-life designs. Ruffles, sculpted skirts and shoulders were the highlights of his collection, ‘scape song.’
His collection, in the designer’s words, is inspired by the fluid structures, frozen waters and the widespread culture born out of it. This could be seen in the set designed on the ramp, which featured a ‘frozen wave.’ Perhaps that’s why, the collection saw elements from the Greek, Roman, Indian and English culture throughout the entire line.
New Bollywood entrant, Saiyammi Kher walked as the showstopper for the designer. Dressed in a silver toned blue ruffled gown, the newbie walked the ramp with grace.
The collection saw the designers signature ruffled gowns, structured corsets, saree gowns, and lehenga cholis. They were styled with cutout and mesh details. Handcrafted in materials like jersey and organza, they showcased his signature embroidery.
The designer played with colours of grey, blue , green, brown and a few powder pastel colours.
