With a story to tell, Gaurav Gupta’s AW collection was architecturally structured and seamlessly crafted. Drenched in bold pastels of jet black, emerald, cobalt, dusky grey and plum; models walked wearing statement outfits that were fit for any evening as well as a red-carpet event. Embellished gold lehengas with sheer bodices were matched with tailored jackets unstructured floor-weeping coats. Peplum blouses were paired with tapered pants as garment daringly plummeted into deep scoops or dapper plunging halter necks. Satin capes and printed column dresses were accompanied with off-shoulder blouses and flared denim trousers. Metallic champagne tops were draped to perfection as turtleneck hoodies were worn over sheer gowns and belted jumpsuits with gathered busters. Pinstriped tuxedos had an androgynous approach as sequined corsets had an uber-cool glam effect. Body-hugging numbers contained daring sweetheart backlines as scooping peplum jackets contained tailored hemlines and exaggerated shoulder pads. Geometrically structured off-shoulder numbers burst into a rustic array of glitzy fabrics as crepe sheaths and coat dresses were accompanied with asymmetric trails and crinkled trouser pants.
