ZERO INFINITY, THE NEW COUTURE SPRING SUMMER 2023 BY SHUNYA
Gaurav Gupta is an Indian couturier and artist known to explore the themes surrounding surrealism and fanaticism from the inception of the brand in 2004 after graduating from Central Saint Martins. In over 18 years, the designer has carved a world that is Indian at its core and boundless in its form merging indigenous construction and embellishing techniques with his idea of the future.
Shunya is a Sanskrit word which translates as zero. Zero was discovered in India many centuries ago. The stillness of zero and infinity expanded possibilities in studies of space and time.
For his first showcase on the official calendar at Paris Haute Couture Week, the designer wanted to delve deeper into his mindscape to come up with a concept which is subliminal in thought and original in form. He tried to explore the movement possibilities between zero and infinity with tangents of mythology, fantasy and surrealism.
Exploring sculptural draping forms in indigo electric blue in satins, chiffons, organzas represents a sense of futurism.
