Gupta will take part in the “Santati- Mahatma Gandhi: Then. Now. Next” exhibition next month in Mumbai, the designer announced. One of the focus areas of the exhibition will be Gandhi’s environmentalism and, as a champion of sustainable fashion, Gupta will showcase some of his eco-friendly work.  

“It’s a small step but I’m at least getting conscious of my own, and my company’s carbon footprint,” Gupta said about his work for the exhibition, as posted on his brand’s social media.

The exhibition will officially launch on October 1, open to the public on October 2, and run until November 15. The exhibition is supported by the Baldota Group which was established as an iron ore mining company in 1961 and is now also one of India’s largest producers of wind power. The business also has a diamond and gold mining division.  

“Gaurav Gupta has always been a forerunner of initiatives connected to preserving the environment,” the Baldota Group wrote on its Facebook page. “Gandhian philosophy connects well with his brand and all his work revolves around being eco-friendly. He believes we can take steps to create a sustainable living in a zero waste society.”

Gupta also recently launched hist first Kolkata flagship store. The boutique launched with a star-studded party and his latest couture collection. The store is housed in a 1,600 square foot, 109 year old building and houses Gupta’s opulent and sculptural gowns over two floors.
