Gaurang Shah to showcase `Paanchali` in five cities
Hyderabad: Textile and fashion designer Gaurang Shah will showcase his new fashion classic `Paanchali` - the styles of the past bridal collections in Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai, New Delhi and Kolkata.
The tour will start in Bangalore on July 19 and will end in Mumbai on Sep 6. Shah, whose work of Jamdani is attracting high end fashionistas both in India and abroad, is optimistic `Paanchali` will put traditional Indian fashion on a high and amplify the stylishness of its owners.
Over the last six months, Shah conceptualized numerous new designs and made a special collection for this tour including his celebrated sarees reflecting the tradition of vintage India with his team of designers and weavers from Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra Gujarat and Kolkata, said a statement released here Monday.
"`Paanchali` is a perfect blend of past and present. My idea of `Paanchali` stems from the belief that these textiles and our Indian weaves shouldn`t be restricted to the runway. I want to reach out to people galore, and educate them about the fabrics, textiles and weaves, which is impossible to understand unless one touches my fabric and feels the texture," said Shah.
His creations are now worn by Bollywood celebs like Vidya Balan, Sonam Kapoor, Taapsee Pannu, Sonali Bendre, Kiron Kher and many other well know celebs across India.
