With this collection, Gupta aims to target “all the brides in India, all those women
who love couture”.
She is a global bride, the one who is a travelling woman, and is thinking and explorative. My garments are also keeping in mind the other peripheral functions/ occasions at a wedding – be it ‘sagan’ or ‘mehendi’ or a cocktail evening,” he told IANS at the sidelines of the AICW.
