Couture gets a fantastical, surreal twist in this dream-perfect collection by designer Gaurav Gupta. “It’s like Cindrella wore these clothes to a surreal ball, and we discovered them centuries later,” says Gupta. Luxe fabrics such as chiffon, tulle and lace, and an ethereal colour palette of dove-grey, stone blue and night-teal spell enchantment. European techniques creatively mingled with Indian craftsmanship bring novelty while futuristic, fantastical silhouettes celebrate all that’s dramatic and larger than life. This collection is not for the faint-hearted.
If you dread all that’s routine and predictable and rejoice in surprising yourself and others, go for it!
