Indian couturier Gaurav Gupta made his debut at Paris Haute Couture Week on Thursday at Palais De Tokyo and Art de Vivre got an exclusive look.
Having launched his brand in 2004 and dressed countless Bollywood and Hollywood stars, Gupta designs are renowned for exploring mysticism and cosmology.
Gupta began his career creating traditional Indian wedding sarees with boutiques across India. But later, he began creating unique and futuristic sculpture-like outfits. The world of Bollywood and Hollywood later gave him a ticket to the world of haute couture.
This year Gupta was offered a place in the official calendar by The Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode for the first time, which made him the third Indian designer ever, to star in the Haute Couture Week. For Gupta, it must have been a breakthrough: a dream come true after many long and hard years of work.
As proof of the brand's growing popularity, the show was visited by many of today's influencers. On Saturday, many major publications put Gupta's collection on par with brands like Schiaparelli, Dior, Valentino, and other major haute couture mastodons.
