Lakme Fashion Week Summer/ Resort 2019 kickstarted with a bang at the iconic venue of Royal Opera House.
The fashion extravaganza was kickstarted by Gaurav Gupta, where the designer presented his collection.
Director Karan Johar and actress Tabu walked the ramp for Gaurav Gupta.
Karan Johar was spotted donning a red blazer with black and silver detailing. This was teamed with a black shirt and matching pants. While, Tabu looked ethereal in a grey off-shoulder ensemble.
Karan went down the memory lane as he said, “This is very emotional moment for me. I have so many memories of watching movies in this particular space. Royal Opera House is where I have come as a child several times, watched movies, and I can’t believe that this has now transformed into this hugely iconic space. Just walking the ramp in this particular place makes me feel like life is completing an entire circle”.

Speaking on his collection, the designer shared on Instagram, “As a designer, I find it interesting to challenge myself. This time, we’re working on a collection that infuses traditional techniques like Chikankari with the brand’s signatures like sculpted draping and structured fluidity. By doing this, we’re giving new meaning to centuries-old crafts and telling the story of modern India in a new way.”
The collection was a mix of playful dresses, pantsuits, sari gowns and evening wear.
The fashion show will continue till the 3rd of February.
