Actor Arjun Rampal transported fashionistas back to his super-modelling days when he hit the ramp in a black bandhgala and pants with designer Rohit Bal’s newly introduced cock motif on the opening day of the India Couture Week (ICW) in the capital.
On the first day of the gala, organised by the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI), Bal, known for his intricate designs with lotus and peacock motifs, surprised all with his new patented motif – cock. The show started with male and female models walking in white coloured voluminous gowns with long jackets, saris and bandhgala with fitted bottoms across rooms of the revamped Bikaner House here on Monday.
The couture pieces, mostly woven into gold and silver threads, then took a colourful turn with outfits in colours like green, maroon and blue. The Swarovski crystals added shine to the opulent range, which was about Mughal era dressing.
Another known face, also a designer, Raghavendra Rathore got lauded by the attendees, which included his counterparts like Rajesh Pratap Singh, JJ Valaya and Masaba Mantena, when he hit the ramp in a Bal’s creation.
