"It was the first time I wore a completely hand woven sari and I fell in love with it instantly. I love Indian textiles and the craftmanships is beautiful. I am in love with sari again. Though I was reluctant intitially but Gaurang gave me the confidence that I will look stunning and I went for the beautifully black handwoven kota sari," she said.
The designer showcased 16 of his classic hand-woven designs, woven majestically to capture the vibes of the coming summer season. One of the garments was created using 28 metres of fabric.
"Our woven collection at LFW have silhouettes that are flowy and manifold like the rose petals. The flowy dresses reflect grandness with contemporary as well as fashion forward captivating look. We have used 12-15 meters of fabric in each

It took over six months for Gaurang to create the collection since the time he conceptualised the theme.
