NEW DELHI: Bollywood actress Esha Gupta walked the ramp for ace designer Manish Malhotra with fellow stars Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez.
Designer Manish Malhotra chose young actors like Esha Gupta, Sidharth Malhotra, and Jacqueline Fernandez to showcase his collection named ‘Threads of Emotions’ (centred on the rich heritage of his native state, Punjab) at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) Autumn-Winter 2013.

“Esha, Jacqueline and Sidharth are young, energetic and spirited and my collection is about these three things,” said Malhotra after the show when asked why he opted for these three faces.
The designer paid an ode to Phulkari embroidery from Punjab through his collection.
“Last two years, I promoted Kashmir thread and zari work and chikankari from Mijan, a small village in Uttar Pradesh. WIFW is just the beginning. The idea is to focus on craftsmanship and showcase it to various fashion weeks by roping in celebrities, thus making it more popular,” says Malhotra.
The collection consisted of sarees, anarkalis, floor-length anarkalis and angarakhas. For men, there were bandhgalas and structured clothes. The fabrics used were georgette, net and raw silk.
After the recent success of ‘Raaz 3’, Esha Gupta is on a new high. She is all set to do an item number in Imran Khan, Kareena Kapoor starrer ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’.
