If you are wondering as to why I am showcasing Gaurav Gupta’s saree-esque designs for the whole week. just feast your eyes on this image…
This is jaw droppingly beautiful in all its glory. It has grandeur, it has form, it has function, it has artistry, it has class and it has soul. It is just larger than life and I just LOVE that part.
Here is a short video of Kalki hugging Gaurav’s designs. Looking like an angel that just dropped in to show us what can be done.

Black is beautiful and so is this black coloured saree from Gaurav Gupta. The designer border and embroidered patch on the pallu enhance the overall appeal of this simple yet elegant saree. Made from polyester, this saree is easy to drape and features subtle sheen.
Amazing “Night Fall” collection saree from 2013.
Feast your eyes on this beautiful piece!
I call this very restrained because it would have been so tempting to add something more to the saree, but he didn’t and the the saree looks spectacular.
In the last couple of months, all the sarees that I encountered and the ones that awed me were all from Gaurav Gupta.
What an amazing talent – he takes sarees to new heights.
What I absolutely love is that these are technically gowns, but they stay so true to the saree concept. Each one a distinctive one.
His creations are out of these world, suitable only for the apsaras to wear.
For the next week, I will showcase one saree each day from Gaurav Gupta collection.
If you are not following him on Facebook – you must.
This elegantly slim model in a clingy saree is posed as if about to begin a turn right there in one of Deen Dayal’s studios. Dayal, by the way, was a high-end artistic photographer to the maharajahs. I love the dancer’s little heeled oxfords, like super-cute jazz shoes! It is unusual to see Western street shoes on an Indian girl wearing traditional clothes and jewellery. The plain-woven saree fabric is very sheer, and I suspect it’s a fine cotton in a flattering colour. And this particular model is incredibly pretty, with a face to rival most starlets today. One can’t help but wonder who she was and who she might have known back around the 1890s.
