Gauhar Khan to walk the ramp for Rinku Sobti at LFW

Mumbai, Aug 25 (IANS) Actress Gauhar Khan is set to walk the ramp for Delhi-based fashion designer Rinku Sobti on Indian Textile Day at the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) winter-festive here.

“It has been hectic, exciting and laborious so far. The hard work that has been put in to create this collection has totally been worth it. I have seen the metamorphosis of the threads turning into fabric and the ultimate outfit. It is my first time at Lakme which makes me even more ecstatic,” Sobti said about the collection in a statement.

The designer draws inspiration from the rich Indian handloom culture that prevails and the intricate works of the weavers in the Bajardiya cluster to shape her collection ‘Tassels’.

The creation is an ode to the handloom tradition and skilled weavers of India.

Sobti has interwoven contemporary and traditional styles of Varanasi – the subtle and the grand – in her collection.

The subtle is projected through avant-garde cuts and checks while the grand shines through in the detailing of the traditional crafts with striking jewels that compliment the vivid colour palette of the fabrics.

The prêt includes chic garments with check designs and the grand comprises ornate fabrics with richly woven patterns. The novel silk net weaves that are a heritage and forte of the Bajardiya weavers brilliantly feature in the check patterns of the prêt designs.

The five-day event will start on Wednesday and conclude on Sunday.
