Gaurav Gupta, the designer honored with the title of ‘Future of Couture’ by Altaroma Altamoda will be for the very first time showcase his collection at the upcoming Lakme Fashion Week, in a fitting collaboration with the world renowned Manipur born, UK based jewelry designer Mawi Keivom. This will be Mawi’s first show in India.
Gaurav who is a graduate from Londons Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design with a store at DLF Emporio (New Delhi), has also been honored with a nomination for the prestigious World Architectural Awards as one of the five best retail spaces worldwide. Gupta, who has known Keivom for many years, says he welcomed the chance to collaborate with Mawi as he was tired of regular show formats."This has been an exciting experience and the project came together very naturally. Mawi's future-primitive style resonates with my sensibility," says Gupta.
Gaurav Gupta Woman has been about the rapidly changing progressive choices, exposure and attitudes of women not only in India but globally. When asked about his collection Gaurav Gupta remarked,” I’m excited about creating a new mood; I’m feeling extra terrestrial right now.”
Now, this is one collaboration that I am early looking forward to. Titled ‘Aliens of Egypt”, the collection will be presented on 13th March,2014 at 0930 PM at Grand Hyatt, Mumbai.
