AW16 \ Mumuksha

The collection played with the idea of India-modern, which comes seeped in a sense of our dual identity, the tug-of-war of traditional and reformist. Gupta’s collection understands process as design and is inspired by an ancient but still-pertinent concept of the yearning for a sort of ‘self-actualisation’,’the desire for the attainment for salvation’ or the space between the old and new. And that’s the sort of man and woman the collection seems to cater to.
