Olympic silver medallist Ravi Kumar Dahiya made his runway debut on the second day of Lakme Trend Week. The 23-year-old freestyle wrestler turned showstopper for dressmaker Mohammed Mazhar.
Dahiya donned a monochrome ensemble from the designer’s Autumn Winter 2021-22 assortment ‘Meri Pyaari Khaat’. The gathering is a tribute to cot weavers. “Echoing a splash of drama on a monochromatic canvas, @mohammed.mazhar.official assortment at FDCI x Lakme Trend Week is an untold story of cot weavers. With this, he dives deep into his childhood recollections and weaves a clothes line encompassing boxy and flowy silhouettes made with materials utilizing the cot weaving method & hand embroideries,” Lakme Trend Week wrote on Instagram.
Dahiya teamed a patchwork kurta and pyajama with a blazer.
The look was accessorised with a metallic ring necklace, some bracelets on each arms and rings. The look was rounded off with a pair of embellished juttis.
The wrestling champion mentioned in a press release, “I’m very blissful to be part of FDCI x Lakme Trend Week. Dressing up in designer outfits and strolling the ramp was as thrilling as wrestling. Mohammed Mazhar is a gifted designer who took inspiration from ‘khaat’ (cot) to create an incredible outfit for me to look nice,” as quoted by news18.com.
