The 5th and the final evening of the Delhi Couture week started on a melancholic note, as the audience kept a minute silence for the late fashion photographer Prabuddha Dasgupta, as requested by the designers Sabyasachi Mukherjee and Manav Gangwani.
The evening commenced with Manav Gangwani’s ‘Royal Affaire’, the collection was a beautiful blend of three shades black, ivory and red. The models walked down the ramp wearing cocktail gowns, lehengas, churidar kurtas, anarkalis, gararas, shararas and pre-draped silk, velvet as well as satin saris. The designer had Bhutan’s queen Jetsun Pema as the guest of honor. The Royal connection was very visible in the collection as well.
Sabyasachi presented his ‘New Moon’ collection, which he said was inspired by the experiences he gained through his various travels around the world. The collection was a tribute to five great cities he had been to New York, Barcelona, Berlin, Kolkata and Paris. The fashion character of each city was distinctly visible in the set of designs. The designer’s collection spoke of Russian needlepoint work, zardozi from Agra, Kantha from Bangladesh and chintz from United Kingdom. With the fewest number of Indian fashion tools used in the collection, it was a global collection but still had an Indian flavor. Sridevi was also present during the event.
The setting of the collection was inspired by the architecture of colonial Indian towns like Shimla and Darjeeling. The accessories used in the collection were from the designer’s newly launched label, Sabyasachi, which debuted at Sotheby’s London.
The guest list of the 5th day included Sophie Choudhary, Raveena Tandon and queen of Bhutan, Jetsun Pema, they were all spotted wearing the black evening dresses during the Manav Gangwani’s show.
Hence, it was a wonderful end to this edition of the Delhi Couture Week, once again it was a successful event which make Delhi shine brightly on the map of fashionable India.
