Olympic silver medalist Ravi Kumar Dahiya made his runway debut on the second day of Lakme Fashion Week. The 23-year-old freestyle wrestler turned showstopper for fashion designer Mohammad Mazhar.
Dahiya donned a monochrome ensemble from the designer’s collection ‘Meri Pyari Khat’ for Autumn Winter 2021-22. The collection is a tribute to the cot weavers. “Echoing drama on monochromatic canvas, @mohammed.mazhar.FDCI x The official collection at Lakme Fashion Week, is an untold story of the cot weavers. With this, he delves deep into his childhood memories and weaves a clothing line incorporating boxy and flowy silhouettes made from fabrics using cot weaving techniques and hand embroidery,” wrote Lakme Fashion Week on Instagram.
Dahiya paired a patchwork kurta and pajama with a blazer.
The look was accessorized with a metallic ring necklace, some bracelets on both the hands and rings. The look was rounded off with a pair of embellished jattis.
In a statement, the wrestling champion said, “I am very happy to be a part of FDCI x Lakme Fashion Week. Wearing designer outfits and walking the ramp was as exciting as wrestling. Mohammad Mazhar is a talented designer who has created ‘Khat’ (cot)”. Inspired me to create a wonderful outfit so that I can look good.”
