Manav Gangwani, 27, is considered among Delhi's promising designers.

A graduate from the Pearl Academy of Fashion, Manav is making his debut at the Wills India Fashion Week this year, with his collection titled ‘Midnight Mystery'.

The designer, who claims to have a fetish for red, treads a different path with black as the dominant palette for his IFW show.

What calls for the mystery? “I have tried blending elements of the vintage era with that of the present era. Now that could appear a mystery to the spectator's eyes”, he elaborates.

This ensemble has streaks of gold done in blue, while the brown prop on the midriff adds to the mystery element.
