Olympic silver medallist 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 Mohammed Mazhar.

Dahiya donned a monochrome ensemble from the designer’s Autumn Winter 2021-22 collection ‘Meri Pyaari Khaat’. The collection is a tribute to cot weavers. “Echoing a dash of drama on a monochromatic canvas, @mohammed.mazhar.official collection at FDCI x Lakme Fashion Week is an untold story of cot weavers. With this, he dives deep into his childhood memories and weaves a clothing line encompassing boxy and flowy silhouettes made with fabrics using the cot weaving technique & hand embroideries,” Lakme Fashion 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 both hands and rings. The look was rounded off with a pair of embellished juttis.

The wrestling champion said in a statement, “I am very happy to be a part of FDCI x Lakme Fashion Week. Dressing up in designer outfits and walking the ramp was as exciting as wrestling. Mohammed Mazhar is a talented designer who took inspiration from ‘khaat’ (cot) to create an amazing outfit for me to look great,” as quoted by
