GG Woman for Shunya Runway Show at Paris Couture Week
Shunya is a Sanskrit word which translates as zero. Zero was discovered in India many centuries ago. The stillness of zero and infinity expanded possibilities in studies of space and time.
For our first showcase on the official calendar at Paris Haute Couture Week, Gaurav delved deeper into his mindscape to come up with a concept which is subliminal in thought and original in form.
The collection explores the movement possibilities between zero and infinity with tangents of mythology, fantasy and surrealism.
Frozen strokes of dancing wind in infinite forms are sculpted in gold and silver handwoven tissue – the set of twin dresses in silver is an embodiment of this
Exploring sculptural draping forms in indigo electric blue in satins, chiffons, and organzas represents a sense of futurism.
There are elemental dresses in black and nude strategically revealing the form in its pristine state. Meteoric light embroideries emulate melting lava or deep waves of a very dark ocean. There is also a garbage-like dress with abstract entangled wires as embroideries.
