Dhoti-clad Prateik Babbar walks the ramp for Masaba
Young designer Masaba Gupta gave the traditional Indian dhoti a modern twist by moulding them into pants and showcased it at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2012, while actor Prateik walked the ramp as a showstopper for her.
The collection is called Sorbet. There was a lot of pink, pista green and lighter colours.
Prateik looked classy as he walked the ramp in white dhoti with black prints.
He wore an open black coat to take a final bow.
Anyone walking for Masaba doesn't work.
She chose Prateik because he is young and edgy and has lot of fun with his dressing.
Her collections included a range of funky printed dhoti pants, maxis and other summer wear outfits.
Masaba said she always believed that if she ever had a showstopper it would be someone who she related to or fit into her idea of showstopper.
The designer, who specialises in pret collection, rues that men's wear market in India is limited.
She did patialas, which was something very different for her.
Masaba said men's wear in India is difficult to find.
