The show begins with smoke emerging from the ground and four models dressed as warriors standing in a formation, holding antique props. Adding to the vintage charm was the war zone music and a stunning backdrop taking the audience into a different era. As the show began, the models (read warriors) move from the formation and take their positions and we see a gorgeous woman walking in the middle dressed in a yellow and bright pink lehenga with heavy jhumkas and a traditional nath, looking no less than a warrior princess.
As she walks on the ramp majestically, the audience tries to figure out amidst her sheer ghunghat, who she is but before the mystery was revealed she heads back on the ramp with eyes following her. The much drama which already grabbed all the attention of the audience proceeds with more models walking on the ramp in the collection named “Malhari” inspired by the warriors and the kings.
As the show proceeds, with the music giving chills Nitin Mehta, a 55-year-old ex-army officer turned into a model leads four other models, all dressed in shining white shervanis. The show brings more colors with kurtas and churidars made using pure glazed cotton. The highlight of the show was long length shervanis worn over floor length kalidars, which brought a much-needed twist to men’s fashion.
As more than 20 models line up on the ramp, we see the very gorgeous Carol Gracias walking on the ramp, sans her mysterious ghunghat this time. She truly ruled the ramp with her charming looks and magnetic aura.The festive wear collection for men, presented by Gauri Couture had something for everyone, the classic white lovers and those who love experimental fashion with vibrant colors like magenta and orange.
