Gaurav Jai Gupta experimented with handwoven fabrics, while Kiran Uttam Ghosh's ocollection had a touch of silver! 

Textile and fashion designer, Gaurav Jai Gupta seems to be giving the handloom industry a huge boost with his collection. 

The collection, 'Mumuksha', which means 'the one who seeks ultimate knowledge', saw handwoven fabrics used to create lovely blends of wool, silk, cotton, zari and stainless steel! 

The collection had saris, shawls, trousers, shirts, shift dresses and much more -- but all wearable garments. 

On the other hand, Kolkata-based fashion designer Kiran Uttam Ghosh's collection was elegant and mostly saw traditional outfits. 

Titled 'Silver', the collection had the colour silver appear in the texturing, embroidery, mirror work and jewellery. 

The designer interestingly brought out a tribal touch to her collection through the use of Tibetan and Mongolian jewellery motifs.  

Presenting some of the outfits from both these designers' collection.
