Gauri Khan launched her last collection for Satyapaul at Satyapaul’s 30thanniversary celebration of the brand, in the Indian fashion industry on the evening of 8th April at the Satyapaul store in DLF Promenade, New Delhi.
The spring summer collection’16 by Gauri Khan called “cocktails and dreams” flashed sarees, sheer tunics and evening dresses, at the store. The collection launch observed a panel discussion with Gauri Khan, Nikhil Mehra, COO, Genesis Colors and Dinaz Madhukar, Sr. VP and mall head, moderated by Tanaaz Bhatia.
Gauri Khan talked about her experience working with Satyapaul and her life as an entrepreneur. “I get inspired from everything that has art. From beautiful surroundings to Architectures, restaurants, traveling, everything inspires me for designing”, answered Gauri when asked what her inspiration while designing is.
She always had a creative side to herself as she was an art student, always into paintings and charcoal drawings. Thus while building her house in Bombay, her interest in designing became clearer and made her take this as a work for herself. She also mentioned about the kind of support she gets from Shahrukh and her kids who take keen interest in looking at every design. While talking about the collection, she said she picked up a very vibrant color palette whereas she herself wears more neutral colors. She also finds sarees more comfortable and feminine and wearing sarees also helps her promoting her collection of sarees.
Nikhil Mehra was super excited with the runaway success of the collection and admired Gauri for her hard work for the brand and how this partnership with her has been successful for the brand.
The collection consists of sarees, sheer tunics and evening dresses in vibrant colors and different designs. The collection is a perfect blend of colors and designs which are very appealing and easy to wear. The designs are combination of traditional wear and contemporary dresses.
Fabrics like satins, georgettes and flat silks remain essential to the collection. The collection also includes the modern range of scarves, ties, pocket squares, bags and clutches. The bridal wears are designed in contemporary form keeping the traditional essence intact with different fabrics and striking colors. A collection of designs for every woman indeed!
