Gaurav Gupta's Spring Summer 2024 haute couture collection, aptly named "Aarohanam," unfolded in a dramatic fashion, embodying the essence of an ascending scale in Indian music. Despite a slight delay in starting, the anticipation for Gupta's runway presentation was palpable, with the expectation of a possible celebrity entrance. Nevertheless, the audience was treated to a visual spectacle as the self-described "futuristic primitive" designer showcased his third Parisian season, blending his signature futuristic sculptural pieces with a fresh direction.

Gupta's collection seamlessly integrated his trademark futuristic pleats and lifted sculptural designs with a new direction characterized by dramatic, heavily embellished tailoring. Structured shoulders and corsetry details adorned the runway, accompanied by pleated dhoti pants and fluid draped skirts. The collection's focal point was the innovative use of embroidery, incorporating 20 distinct traditional techniques from India. This meticulous craftsmanship imparted a textured irregularity and a jagged snakeskin effect to the embellished bolero jackets that graced the runway.

Throughout the collection, Kundalini snakes, referencing the sacred feminine in Indian philosophy, were a constant motif. Their sinuous forms were suggested in the sweeping swirls of Gupta's signature designs, including a breathtaking bridal gown with a train that elegantly spanned the width of the runway at the American Cathedral, the chosen venue for the season.

Gupta elevated his designs with cast-metal pieces, resembling serpents and birds, serving as exquisite adornments. A molten golden bodice encased the chest like armor, while symbolic medallions held together a draped black jersey dress at the chakra points. In silver, Gupta's designs evoked shifting sands or molten lava, featuring sculpted protrusions emerging from the flow of embroidered fabric over shoulders or hips. A vivid red palette symbolized the rising flames of inner fire, highlighted by a dramatic embroidered crop top extending to gloved hands.
