New Delhi: Designer Manav Gangwani returns after a break with "Seven", his latest collection inspired by his own life.
"My years in the industry have made me realise that the most important person in making me who I am is 'I'," said Gangwani, known for his couture collection and intricate embroidery, in a statement.
"It is my faith in myself and in my passion for designing that has shaped the course of my life," he added.
Embroidered garments were certainly created keeping in with Gangwani's s unique style.
Complementing the use of Swarovski crystals, the designer has experimented with using pearls, gota and chikankari extensively.
He has also played with various fabrics and colours depicting his "Seven" virtues - hope, faith, forgiveness, honesty, strength, courage and loyalty.
"Taking inspiration and using techniques from a long-forgotten era, I have woven together a fantasy of ethereal creations. I have given a touch of other worldly charm and serenity along with a feeling of opulence to the entire collection," said the designer.
Translating his seven virtues into seven colours, Gangwani has used shades of pink to depict hope, yellow to faith, lavender to forgiveness, ivory to honesty, aqua to strength, gold to courage and finally the luminosity of green to loyalty.
Apart from Indian celebrities, he also styled British supermodel Naomi Campbell, who was in the country to celebrate her Russian billionaire boyfriend Vladimir Doronin's 50th birthday
