Shilpi Gupta Surkhab, a high-end womenswear label, presented their couture collection ‘A Poetic Ode to Giulietta by Shilpi Gupta’, with a fashion show at The Imperial, New Delhi.
‘Giulietta’ is Shilpi Gupta’s passionate ode to the world of romance, a world infused with passion, beauty, creativity, and music! The collection showcases Shilpi’s signature sense of luscious designs and classically beautiful sensibilities and presents an exclusive range varying from ballroom dresses to Indian couture.
Hosted by founder Shilpi Gupta, the musical evening was held with an opera and modern jazz performance, intermingled with a spectacular fashion show. The fabulous line up of artists included Kabuki Khanna for vocals, Sonal Sikka on the piano, base by Ekaterina Aristova, Pritam Ghoshal on the sarod and the flute by Omkar Prasanna.
‘Amorous, pure and innocent’ – Giulietta embodies the very essence of young beauty, fresh love and an ethereal aura of romanticism! Shilpi takes us through a poetic world of a beautiful young woman, as she goes through different emotions and a journey tangled with love, lust, trust, loyalty and finally, reaches the very essence of womanhood – as an empowered and strong female protagonist.
Giulietta’s life unfolds with three beautifully conceptualized acts. The first act with ballroom dresses portrays her innocence, freshness, vitality and the first flush of youth. The second act with the sari is about the romance and passion Giulietta feels when she meets Romeo. She is sexy, sensuous and seductive. The third act is where she discovers herself and emerges as a strong woman of today – self-assured and assertive. This is represented in the ‘Baroque’ collection. The jewelry has been specially designed for Giulietta by ‘Soranam by Sonia Malhotra’.
Speaking on the occasion, Founder Shilpi Gupta said, “Fashion is an expression, it’s a way of expressing yourself without saying anything. Giulietta is an ode to my love for fashion. The collection is very special for me as it’s reminiscent of the beauty and the charm of my travels through Italy. With Giulietta, I’ve presented my views on the perfect woman of today, someone who is proud, beautiful, self-assured and enigmatic. I hope the collection resonates with the stylish and chic women of today and helps them make an extraordinary style statement. ”
