Waves reached the shore in the most beautiful attires at Gaurav Gupta’s show at ICW 2019 by FDCI
Coming directly from the fierce wave of the dynamic ocean, Gaurav Gupta presents “UNDERCURRENT” at FDCI’s ICW 2019. The collection is an elated feeling of infinity wrapped in scientifically made organza. The 15 years of his journey has been depicted in an ensemble of various fabrics in multiple colours.
The palate of the designer is a treat for the eyes with shades of soft violet, lilac, rosewood pink and lava red. His team has experimented with newer fabrics for their signature sculpting technique to make it look more detailed and charismatic. The designer has considered the aspect of practical fashion breaking the stereotype of “the heavier the bride-r” with couture and jewellery to present a classic, timeless look for the bride in class and comfort.
Gupta’s show had gowns as the highlight as the gowns were designed to look like sarees, making them graceful and pleasant at the same time. The use of jet black colour with other shades of grey and white as well as the use of maroon and violet was mesmerizing to the eyes. From off-shoulder, cold shoulder backless to jackets and shrugs, every outfit had great attention to detail.
The highlight of the collection as the men’s wear; comfortable, stylish, modern, posh and regal. The collection defines the fashion for men and dictates the garments in Jet black, white, and various shades that lie between the two. “I have tried to capture the motion of undercurrent as an artistic statement in this couture collection. Couture is not just lehengas or traditional sarees now. Those are beautiful but now there is a whole new language to progressive contemporary Indian couture,” said Gaurav.
As the actress Diana Penty literally draped in diamonds looking like the wave of the big ocean of Bollywood walked on the stage in the final outfit, jaws dropped and hearts skipped a beat. “I have always loved being on the ramp. And with Gaurav, it’s always special. I have been a fan of Gaurav Gupta and have been wearing his creations for a while now. I love his aesthetics, his finesse and his sculpting which he is known for. He is a perfect red carpet go-to,” Diana said post-show.
