All you shoppers out there, I hope y’all know that malls in Delhi are passé! If your true love is shopping (particularly for designer wear), you’ve got to visit Qutub, Mehrauli. More so now, because our Fashion Extravaganza is now LIT, thanks to the brand new Gaurav Gupta store.

Why, you ask? Visit the store and see for yourself!

Now, if you’re the kinds who is plain lazy and going anywhere feels like a trek (welcome to my world), I’ll give you a little more than a sneak peek. And hopefully, that will excite you to make that effort.

I was recently invited by our Delhi diva, Pooja Gogia to the unveiling of Gaurav Gupta’s latest collection at Lakmé Fashion Week, named The (Un)folding and the opening of the new store matched perfectly to everything couture.

The greys and grooves welcome you to this delightful dungeon and instantly you’re transported to the FUTURE of FASHION.

The sculpted, expansive & futuristic clothing brings everything to life and you feel indulged (if you know what I mean)!

The store itself is HUGE and HUGE in a good way. Well laid out, with clothes sectioned-up beautifully. We know that clothes from GG are pieces of art and when the art is all over the store, it’s like Fashion Museum (just that you’re able to shop here)! Colour palette was conservative but very appealing- Black, Gold, Greys, Whites, Blues & Reds! Contemporary with hints of tradition are perfect for channeling your inner goddess.

And that wasn’t it… If you’re being spoilt with so much glamour, then why should men be left behind? Right? And anyway, once you have had a cheat day (in terms of all that shopping), you kind of feel obliged (for lack of a better word) to spoil you man too. Sweat not, the men’s section is oozing edginess and elegance at the same time. Yup, that’s one helluva combination!

So wheel right in and don’t blame us for another shopping spree!

PS: I almost forgot… you’d love the new little brooches!

Fashion Weeks were quite the talk of the town (depending on how fashion-savvy you are) but to be honest, I haven’t given full fledged reviews on every single show that happened unless it really blew my mind. Day 2 of LFW Summer Resort ’19 had Varun Bahl unveiling his pret line. But, it didn’t excite me one bit. One designer that got me sit up and notice was Aza Kazingmei who did this whole Grunge/ Goth vibe with his collection and how striking it was! Leather, denim, graffiti prints, the works! Take a look.

PS: My husband is into the leather business so obviously special mention and liking for this particular designer fellow!

Lakme fashion week witnessed a GRAND opening (thanks to the aerial theatrics) at the Royal Opera House! Poetess Navkirat Sodhi unfolded Gaurav Gupta’s “ THE (UN)FOLDING” collection with prose that spoke of “Killing pain with couture”. How befitting for most fashionistas, no?!

PS: Not sure if you have seen JLO’s performance in American Idol 2015. Please do watch because this performance at LFW Summer Resort ’19 seemed very dejà vu [ouch! shouldn’t be stating references ;)]

His women’s collection was grand and glam with his signature elements claiming force (big ruffles et al) . But what I liked more was his menswear with edginess & embellishments that are served in right quantities. I would like to re-post a couple of his pics on the blog here along with a few pieces from lesser-known designers (Mohammed Mazhar, Kunal Rawal to name a few) who have showcased some interesting stuff!  Ready, Set, Scroll!
