Masaba Gupta Reinvents Dhotis

Posted in

 Young designer Masaba Gupta has always got rave reviews for her creations and is often picked by veteran designers when asked who will be brightest bunch designers of the coming years.
The talented lady is known for her kitschy and funky prints and brightest of colours that she gives to her garments. Ever since she made her debut with Lakme Fashion Week a few seasons ago, she has been a regular at the week. This season too she was her best self as she reinvented the traditional ages old Indian dhoti and gave it a modern twist with that sexy look.
Moulding dhotis into pants was Masaba's style statement this season and wow was the response that she received from viewers and fashion lovers. Along with dhoti pants, she had maxis, dresses, tops, patiyala salwars, tunics, waist coats, jackets, blouses, cropped tops and sarees in her collection.
It was a tasty collection with the delicious title 'Sorbet' that Masaba presented. Bringing to the ramp her distinct fusion styling touches, Masaba showed a look that was relaxed, languid and fluid in soft hues of baby pink, lemon yellow with dollops of pista green along with black and white to add to the menu of 'Sorbet' colours.
Masaba loves colour blocking and makes sure that she uses enough bright colours in her garments.But this time though she has named her line 'Sorbet', the colours were more of pastels and other lighter hues teamed with brighter ones. She says, "I wanted my line to be very classy and sophisticated and hence 'Sorbet' has pastels, pink, greens and other lighter hues."
Known for her prints, the deisgner's inspiration was very vintage in nature this season with the cow and camera prints in black and white or red and white with golden taar embroidery that highlighted the soft colours.
She feels that men's wear in India is limited and hence she worked on reinventing dhotis in stylish pants so that men can have some stylish options available.
It was young actor Prateik who took the ramp for Masaba wearing a white dhoti with black prints and open black bandhgala coat and stopped the show.
Putting more light on her collection she says, "Men's wear in India is very difficult to find and my collection is for those men who like to dress up. Prateik is someone who is young and likes to have fun with his dressing style. Hence he was picked by the designer to walk and stop the show for him."
Making a fashion statement with her very rustic "Sorbet" collection, Masaba offered something fusion in nature to the very "new age" adventurous woman and man who love to make an impact with their style and elegance.
