Glamour, elegance and Arjun Rampal: Durazi at HDIL

Here's what Shahab Durazi offered up on the final day of HDIL India Couture Week in Mumbai.

Eveningwear inspired by the '40s and '50s and old-world silver screen appeal characterised Shahab Durazi's collection, showcased at the HDIL India Couture Week on October 10.

The veteran designer returned to the ramp after a hiatus of five years and fashionistas were full of expectations that were more than met with his Western eveningwear line.

To top things off, Durazi got Arjun Rampal to model the showstopper. Take a look at how it all went down.

Carol Gracias was one of the first on the ramp in this layered, fringed and feathered affair that has a rather sophisticated appeal.
