Gaurav Gupta graduated from Central Saint Martin’s (London) in 2003, where his graduate collection was awarded ‘The Future of Couture’ trophy at Altaroma Altamoda, Rome Couture Fashion Week and with ‘The Roots of Creativity’ title at the Mittelmoda Fashion Awards (Italy). Two years later, Gaurav returned to Mittelmoda as their youngest jury member. His earlier work, while studying at NIFT (Delhi) in 2000 had been awarded at the Makuhari Grandprix in Japan and at the Admiralty Needle in Russia.
After working with designers like Hussein Chalayan, Tristan Webber and Stella McCartney. Gaurav, subsequently, took up the post of Art Director at the Turkish prêt brand LTB. He debuted his eponymous label at India Fashion Week in 2006. With this collection, Gaurav’s aesthetic sensibility was acknowledged for being groundbreaking in terms of its distinct garment construction and untempered experimentation with form and fabric. Since then, the brand has been featured on the covers of Vogue, L’Officiel, Elle, Marie Clare and M magazine (India). The Italian design journal Creativita (Colleczioni Group) lists Gaurav among ‘designers who set global trends’.
Besides designing women’s prêt and occasion wear, the Gaurav Gupta brand has recently ventured into couture and bridal ensembles, launched its menswear and kidswear lines, opened a flagship store, collaborated with Swarovski for accessories and designed its first collection of couture footwear.
Gaurav works closely with lines and the motion of fabric. His inimitable take on three-dimensional embroideries and volume play have created a signature look that is hard to place but is reminiscent of something future primitive.The brand’s collections are available at Alan Bilzerian, H. Lorenzo, Anastasia (U.S.), L’eclaireur (Paris), Myst (Hong Kong) and selected stores across India. Besides designing, Gaurav has been actively collaborating with contemporary artists and musicians, participating in international art festivals such as the Biennial in 2009 (Portugal). While his sensibility is finding appreciation at stores that value authenticity and opinion, his work is parallely being seen as a movement in art.
