Manish Gupta has just launched “Carved Desires”, a new collection of feminine garments that showcases a dozen delicate hand skills.
The New Delhi-based designer explains: “It’s a line that has a dream-like quality. I deliberately called it “Carved Desires” because the work process is elaborate and detail-driven and reflects the way a masterpiece is carved! Intricate cutwork, jamawar patterns and tonal floral gauze embroidery are some of the highlights of this line.”
The collection is mainly made up of gowns: the light ones look effortless and can be teamed with a churidhar for an Indian look. The chiffon ones are breezy and should do well for lunch outings. Though casual, there is a touch of handwork on them. They are flattering, yet not completely Western in concept. Moreover, the line has an extremely feminine cut and the finish of the garments is flawless.
