Mumbai, Aug 7 If she wowed movie buffs with her performance in “Gangs of Wasseypur” (GOW), actress Huma Qureshi impressed fashionistas when she walked the ramp Tuesday in a black dress as showstopper for Atithi Gupta at the fifth and final day of Lakme Fashion Week 2012.
For Huma, Gupta created a black dress with uneven drape hemline and teamed it up with golden zardosi sleeveless shrug.
“I work on detailing. My garments look simple but there is lot of texturing and gathering. I wanted to keep it minimalistic, stylish and different,” Gupta told IANS.
When asked why she chose Huma as her showstopper, the designer explained: “In her forthcoming movie ‘Gangs of Wasseypur 2′, Huma plays the love interest of a gangster. There is lot of drama to her character in the film, she tries to imitate Madhuri Dixit. I thought this would add drama to my garments and that she would do justice.”
The music of “Gangs Of…” played in the background when the actress sashayed down the ramp and it was a perfect promotion for part two of the film, releasing Wednesday. Director Anurag Kashyap, who showed up a little late, was there to cheer for Huma.
Gupta’s collection offered dresses, pleated skirts, draped outfits, jumpsuits and she also experimented with unique jackets and fluid pants.
She used a mix of fabrics like georgette, wrinkled crepe, chiffons and cotton silks to give a feminine and classy feel to her garments. A wide range of colors including blue, pastel purples, black and grey was used.
The final day also saw collections by other new designers – Nupur Kanol and Ruchika Sachdeva.
