Gaurang’s Spectacular Peshwai Collection An Ode To Historic Textiles At Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019

Historic textiles and stunning weaves dazzled on the catwalk as Gaurang unveiled his fabulous “Peshwai” collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019.

The show opened to the strains of live music and singer Gargi Siddhanth, disciple of Pandit Jasraj who melodiously sang throughout the show as the models walked gracefully down the ramp.


The rich weaves of Paithan rose to great splendour during the Mughal Era but Peshwa Bajirao brought this glorious textile in the 18th century to Baroda. The “Peshwai” collection on the runway was a grand mélange of fabrics that were from the Deccan Plateau and associated with Peshwa royalty.

Presentation of traditional  textile in a modern mode as he brought the 18th century motifs to centre stage but in a new avatar. The designer further experimented with the checked Kota Doria turned it into a jamdaani canvas and patterned with Persian designs and mosaics.

In addition, Gaurang cleverly accentuates  the intricate mustard seed Bandhani for the ornate weaves. With a collection so rich and regal the colour canvas had to match its beauty. Here the designer creatively played with pure white, which gently flowed into shades of yellow, orange and rose red.
