Best known for his cutting edge design, signature drapes and unique approach to cut, silhouette and fabric, the talented designer, Gaurav Gupta presented his bridal collection titled “LightFall” at the India Bridal Week in Mumbai. Aptly named “LightFall”, it is the luminescence of every garment - the light behind, over and within every process of creation that inspires the designer for this collection. As expected from Gaurav, the collection does not fall into the conventions of bridal wear but encourages today’s brides to push the boundaries and celebrate her uniqueness, thus creating a strong style statement.
Lace, jersey, georgette, organza and soft mesh complements the intricate beauty of ancient Indian embroidery and techniques like saadi, pitta, zari, nakshee and multidimensional surface ornamentation.
In a colour palette of dust gold, moon grey, ecru, Egyptian teal and interesting pop of neon, Gaurav’s collection plays with existing silhouettes to give a new form. Saree and lehenga evolves in order to derive newer silhouette, so thus the gown. This truly symbolizes the evolving facet of today’s new age progressive bride.
"Once upon a checkered dreamOf songs in lace and rivulets of goldSilence became the song the themeBy light the tale of its falling was toldSomewhere she said an eye would blinkAnd somewhere a cave will stallNight would be the torch to everythingOn the day light falls"
