Mumbai, June 24 (IANS) Gaurav Gupta has been announced as the grand finale designer of Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015 to be held from August 26 here.
The five-day event will take place at Hotel Palladium.
Renowned for his edgy designs and futuristic concepts, Gupta will be lending his avant garde vision to the finale collection in his signature style.
He pinned modern Indian couture on the global map by reinventing the traditional sari with gothic art and three-dimensional metal and leather embroideries.
With the designer infusing his energy into design, this season’s grand finale at the fashion week promises to be an exciting affair with imaginative sculpting as the dominant theme.
“It is an honour to be chosen as the grand finale designer for India’s premier fashion event. I am excited to be celebrating my 10 years’ journey in fashion by presenting the new collection as part of Lakmé Fashion Week’s 15 year milestone.
“The new collection is going to be a progressive dialogue between Lakmé’s Sculpt beauty statement and my drapes. While fantasy will remain at the heart of my collection, you will definitely see a playful juxtaposition of structure with fluidity and red carpet glamour,” Gupta said in a statement.
