Gaurang showcased his collection “Savitri” at Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2018. The collection was inspired by the legendary South Indian star Savitri, who was one of the greatest icons of the Tamil, Telegu, Kannada and Malayalam film industries.
Gaurang’s line is a respectful ode to the South Indian actress, as he unveiled South Indian fabric on their retro glamour. The rich jewel tones, which Savitri adored were very much a part of the ensembles. The beautiful fabric that was draped on the models were aptly styled to match the mood of the show.
The rich Kanjivaram silks, were seen shimmering radiantly under the ramp lights in intricate weaves. From swirling anarkalis, full flared kurtas and flowing shararas, the show moved to a variety of saris in every shade and hue. Delighting the heart of the traditional Indian dressers.
For the finale, Gaurang moved away from the usual and brought in the very graceful and beautiful ballet dancer Pia Sutaria who pirouetted down the ramp to the foot-tapping tune of the hit song “Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh” from the block buster movie ‘Shree 420’.
Offering the audience a memorable show, Gaurang’s “Savitri” collection was a perfect ode to the actress.
