Masaba Gupta gave the traditional Indian dhoti a modern twist by moulding them into pants and showcased it at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2012, while actor Prateik walked the ramp as a showstopper for her.
“Basically the collection is called Sorbet. I do very warm colours generally, but this time I shifted into pastels. So there was a lot of pink, pista green and lighter colours. We wanted to keep it very classy and sophisticated,” Masaba said after the show, adding it was an attempt to reinvent dhotis.
Her collections included a range of funky printed dhoti pants, maxis and other summer wear outfits.The designer, who specialises in pret collection, rues that men’s wear market in India is limited.
“This time I did patialas, which was something very different for me. Men’s wear in India is so difficult to find. This is not really something, which is commercially out there but men who like to dress up, it’s (collection) for them.”
