Designer Gaurav Gupta’s opens Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort’19

It was a memorable evening at the Royal Opera House last evening as designer Gaurav Gupta opened Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort’19 show on a very dramatic and spectacular way. The visual effects to recitation of a monologue through the show had balletic dancers perform in the most sensual way.

Introducing Lucknowi Chikankari for draped demi-couture dresses along with a vibrant yellow, known traditionally as ‘Basanti’, Gaurav included sun-kissed Banarasi brocades for deconstructed lehengas, which he brought his expertise with orgami folding and fluid structural construction. A mélange of dresses, pantsuits, sari gowns and eveningwear classics were dappled with zardosi, chikankari and hand-woven brocades. The embroidery was specially crafted as 3D flowers in delicate organza and soft georgette, blossomed all over the garments along with a discreet splash of crystals.

The show had Bollywood actress Tabu who glided down the runway in a grey glttery gown in the beginning and then later had Bollywood’s biggest director/ producer Karan Johar who strutted in an ornate rose coloured one-button jacket with black lapels, corded epaulets and teamed with sleek black trousers.

It was an evening to remember at the “Royal Opera House” in Mumbai.
