He takes the most beautiful traditional weaves and styles.
He presents them in the most traditional way.
He lets the beauty of the craft and the mesmerising magic of traditional textiles take over.
And let's them, to the soothing tune of a classical Hindustani song and music, gently weave their magic.
That, in a nutshell, was the Gaurang Shah show at the Lakme Fashion week.
Gaurang's collection was titled Peshwai.
The show opened to the strains of live music and the melodious voice of Pandit Jasraj's Gargi Siddhanth.
The models' movements were slow, graceful, dance-like.
Gaurang played with the rich weaves of Paithan and luxurious fabric from the Deccan Plateau, once associated with Peshwa royalty.
Bringing 18th century motifs centrestage in a new avatar, he experimented with the checked Kota Doria, turned it into a jamdaani canvas and patterned it with Persian mosaics.
Gaurang accentuated the intricate mustard seed bandhani.
The designer creatively played with pure white, which gently flowed into shades of yellow, orange and rose red.
The cholis were kept simple and elegant, with either short, three-quarter or long sleeves.
Much of the collection reflected bridal glamour.
Gaurang takes a bow.
