Gaurav's collection was titled The Unfolding.
The designer stuck to his quintessential structured detailing in the outfits.
The menswear saw interesting jackets with floral prints and embroidery.
'The inspiration behind the collection is that it is an unfolding of a new idea for me. I always want to make something original, innovate within my art in couture and demi-couture. This collection is an unfolding of a new chapter, unfolding of a new line of Indian textiles turned into demi-couture garments,' Gupta told the PTI.

What a splendid show!
