Designer Priya Katariya Puri, a big fan of Gayatri Devi, paid tribute to the late "rajmata" of Jaipur, with her collection at the Lakme Fashion Week here Friday. She chose Mugdha Godse as the showstopper.
"I am inspired by Gayatri Devi from my childhood. As she passed away last year, I felt this was the right time pay a tribute to her and I created this collection in her memory.
I am a very, very big fan of her style and her beauty...her entire style statement and the kind of person she was," Priya told IANS.
Priya's collection saw use of bold digital prints in the hues of bold pinks, green and blue in kaftans, saris and tunics.
Model-turned-actress Mugdha sashayed down the ramp in a light pink dress with a lot of embellishment and "surface jewellery". She said that the dress was perfect for a marriage function.
"You don't have to wear much jewellery with this outfit. So it makes things a lot simpler. You just slip into the dress and you are ready for the function," said Mugdha.
"I am feeling very honoured and privileged to be a part of Gayatri Devi inspired collection," she added.
