GAURAV GUPTA SHOWCASES HIS HIRANYAGARBHA COLLECTION
AT INDIA COUTURE WEEK
Delhi, DLF Emporio, 27th JULY 2023: Hiranyagarbha; a collection by Gaurav Gupta presented at the India Couture week.
Inspired from the manifested cosmos in Vedic philosophy, the collection includes the interpretations of the five elements: Panchamahabhutas – earth (prithvi), water (jal), fire (agni), air (vayu), and space (akasha) from the universal womb.
Looking resplendent in an electric blue lehenga adorned with 3000 hand-embroidered bugle beads, Janhvi Kapoor walked the ramp in a showstopper silhouette from the collection which took 457 man hours to make.
For this edit of the couture collection, the designer has expanded the Hiranyagarbha story to include reception cocktail lehengas, gowns, saris and modern hybrid silhouettes with the synergies of comfortable, confident easy couture.
The starkness of space is imagined in the absolute whites submerged in lustrous, iridescent pearls and crystals orbiting around the body; The wind is reminiscent in smoke pearl embroideries on shades of moondust; Glass bugle beads are hand-embroidered on a striking electric blue reflecting the currant of the water; The vibrant Malachite evokes the glory of earth; and the acid yellow reminds us of ferocious flames of the fire.
For this edit, Gaurav adds a fantasy-drama to menswear. Whimsical creatures like Dragons, Pegasus, Centaur are rendered in 3-D embroideries onto tuxedos, bandhgalas. Jackets with an elevated flamboyance to sartorial luxury.
This collection is a journey from birth, transformation, realisation, and eventual harmony with the cosmos. It is a peek into the golden womb, inviting us to embrace the stark light within.
