Sunday night came the end to the extravagant Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015. Gaurav Gupta who celebrated a decade as an ace designer in the fashion week walked the ramp before the curtains of this year came down. To add grace, he was accompanied by Kareena Kapoor Khan, this being their first time together on stage, they did sizzle it up!
Kareena looked absolutely stunning in a black flowing sheer gown, from the sculpt line. “It’s very interesting to collaborate with new designers every time during the finale. I admire the novelty and quirk that new designers like Gaurav bring to the table. I think the fashion industry needs such creative minds,” she said.
The 34-year-old actress whose outfit was a playful juxtaposition of Gaurav’s signature drapes and structure, expressed that she loved working with him, with the theme of the show and designs going much hand in hand, sculpting with fabric just added up to the extravaganza. The fabrics used were mostly neoprene, tulle, silks and georgettes in colours like grey, black, ivory and red.
The models who emerged on stage looked stunning in Gaurav’s range at the Mehboob Studio. “It was an exciting pressure to be a finale designer. It is a first for me.We celebrate our decade today and Lakme celebrates its 15 years. The music was very unique because we did a very artistic setting.The clothes are also very sculptural. We kept the music romantic and (such) which fills large spaces in a beautiful way,” Gaurav said.
The show had a lowing celebrity quotient this time with just a turnout of Dia Mirza, Aditi Rao Hydari, Prateik Babbar, Shriya Saran and Zayed Khan in attendance.
