Actress Aditi Rao Hydari looked sizzling as she walked the marvellously done ramp for designer Gaurav Gupta (GG) on Day 6 of the ongoing FDCI India Couture Week 2017.

The actress looked straight out of a fairytale land in the Gaurav Gupta ensemble as she closed the show for the designer with her confident and graceful walk on the ramp which was brilliantly beautified with decorative lighting installations by Klove. The star sashayed down the ramp, dressed in a gown with minimal make-up on and no accessories. She opted to keep her hair open and added a slightly wet, messy look to her tresses. The B-town beauty looked effortlessly chic.


Gaurav, who showcased his couture collection titled 'Moondust', was all smiles as he walked in with his showstopper Aditi towards the end of the show. The two happily posed for shutterbugs after an 'enchanting' display of the couture line.

Talking about walking the ramp for Gaurav, Aditi said at a post show media interaction, "It was very special, because GG was one of the first people who encouraged me and dressed me when I was new, 6-7 years ago. Also, it's very special because it's the first time I am walking for him and very much like GG, I believe in enchanted forest and unicorns and happy things."


Gaurav too was extremely happy to have Aditi as his muse. During the media interaction he said, "She (Aditi) evolves and she is not scared to experiment. She has worn many different looks for me and for many designers and she goes for it. Also, within that she finds her personality, so it's not that she blindly goes for it, she's a 'thinking wearer'.

Moondust, Gaurav's couture line featured garments with western silhouettes and which had lots of sparkle and looked exquisite and heavenly. His couture pieces totally floored the audiences, who were all gaga about the divinity in the designer's ensembles. With his signature sculpted wave gowns and a subdued, romantic colour story, Gaurav cast a spell on the ramp.

"It's a very couture collection. It's very detailed, all the embroidery and the work which has gone into it is very couture. It's inspired by nature, forest, a fantasy space, almost like a parallel world happening on the moon but in a fairy tale way. It was all these bath like sculptures made into garments...there's lot of innovation and creativity, it's just about celebrating fantasy," said Gaurav Gupta to the media.

For his latest collection, Gaurav was inspired both from the past and the future. From the past he picked up on themes like fairytales, princesses, and magic castles; from the future he gathered new techniques and materials that could tell the story of Moondust in a new yet innovative way.

"I wanted to make couture feel new and refreshing again. So, I have included sculpted shapes that seem fantastic and surreal, but achieved in painstaking handcrafted embroideries and silhouettes," said Gaurav.


The collection featured fabrics such as chiffons, dupions, crepes, tulle, nets and lace and the colour palette, which spoke of castles in enchantment, included dove grey, ivy and stone blue, ivy green, night teal, fern green among others.


Bejeweled stags, birds that fluttered across the bodice, and sculpted waves embellished with sequins enhanced the beauty of each couture piece. Gaurav's collection truly looked magical and divine on the ramp.
