Gaurav emerged winner amongst some serious competition, 1500 Designers who participated in 1st round out of which 450 were selected for 2nd round. Gaurav Mandal won ‘Best Design’ in both the categories.
Commenting on this achievement, Gaurav said “This is a tribute to our national treasure- handloom. The holistic look, including accessories have been rendered with handloom fabrics sourced from different states of India. With a titillate color palate of Black red and white, the look was created by combination of modern silhouettes with Indian classical drapes.
The journey of making this collection had been very enriching. Sourcing, travelling and connecting with artisans to infuse the core of this Indian handloom in myself. From beautiful weaver cluster of Mahesh wari, Madhya Pradesh to the very artistic tailor community in Pili hit district, Uttar Pradesh.”
