Chandigarh Dec 18, 2017: What started off as a passion, is today endorsing its relevance in contemporary fashion by the designer duo Arun Ahuja & John Marya via their luxury wear brand ‘Mehraab’.

The brand as a part of Gentlemen’s Club 4.0 event last night here, presented an exclusive preview of the astonishing menswear pieces epitomizing the design story of the luxury brand.

On the second day of luxury art and fashion event, the visionary artist duo presented 40 garments through a fashion show that saw the label’s endeavour to translate traditional craft into effortless beauty.

The collection showcased the celebratory amalgamation of the classic, with the designer’s signature contemporary touch. It renewed the vintage charm of a bygone era through a design story of velvet, zardosi inspired by ‘Nawabs’, hand embroidery with Victorian influence and woven blend of ikkat and gold along with highlights of fur.

Handcrafted in varied hues, the collection was a classic compilation of well-tailored and embroidered kurta-salwars, bandhgalas, kurta-bandis along with drape and long jackets showcasing an enchanting fusion of urban and tradition.

The evening also saw the limited edition of the laptop and i-pad bags and shoes soaked in the royalty of French paisley being displayed.

Speaking about the experience, Arun Ahuja said, “I am amazed by the energy and the love the City Beautiful has shown to our work. This has given us a reason to make a major comeback soon."

"I think, our idea to let the fashionistas of Chandigarh know our unconventional approach to motifs and silhouettes’ has worked and the evening was a proof of the same," Ahuja added.

John Marya said, “We are thrilled with the response of the audience. It gives us immense pride to see how far we have all come today. Gentlemen’s Club is a microcosm of what we have to offer the world.”
