LFW Day-2 ends with Odyssey & space age fusion
Mar '14
Showcasing one of the most dazzling collections Gaurav Gupta’s debut appearance at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014 was a fabulous futuristic show called “Memphire”. There was glitz, glamour and large doses of grandeur as pairs of models strutted down the catwalk in Gaurav’s creations adorned with Mawi Keivom's heart stopping jewellery.
The glitter of metallic jersey, gold and black shimmer of sequins was highlighted by colours like gold, copper, black, anthracite, flame orange and teal. Inspired by the regal creations of ancient Egypt, the silhouettes were slender and lean and revealed a distinct contrast between diamond sharpness and Egyptian futuristic drapes. A master of drapes and silhouettes that completely push the construction envelope; Gaurav displayed his expertise with Carbon Lattice, Isis, Serpent Wave and Diagonal Murmur. 
Multiple drapes were merged so expertly that they boggled the mind, while the structured and moulded fabrics clung dangerously around the models to emerge into unbelievable silhouettes.
Antique gold metallic draped one-shoulder gown with an endless trail revealed the futuristic look of the garments; while striking body and jumpsuits, dresses and sari gowns held the attention of the audience. Slim pants were seen under luxurious togas, along with lace gowns and cocktail dresses that were breathtaking in their regal beauty meant for the futuristic Egyptian queens.
Mention must be made of the very exotic make-up, the gorgeous gold platform shoes and Mohawk like hair-do that followed the Egyptian theme.
When women want to look like Egyptian goddesses then Gaurav Gupta’s collection called “Memphire” will allow them to compete with beauties of the world and rule the fashion scene.
