Indian designer Masab Gupta won the rights to officially curate Game of Thrones‘ official merchandise. The ace designer will be launching her collection exclusively on Star World, Star World HD and Star World Premiere HD during the airing of GoT season eight episode 1. The collaboration remains one of its kind and will see her House of Masaba curate clothing line, jewelry line, and tech accessories.
Speaking in an interview, Masaba shed further light on the collaboration that has sent her fans berserk. When asked how exactly did the collab fall into place she revealed, “Well, Black, White and Orange which is the company that handles the HBO merchandise in India, they reached out to us about two years back and they said that they would like for us to do the official merchandise and jewelry for Game of Thrones. And I was I just didn’t know what I would do when done this, like, you know, how could you actually lend the Game of Thrones to clothing?”

“We gave it some thought and really kind of brainstorm. They said that ‘we know, you as a brand, you are young and you probably will be interpreted in a very proud way’. So that’s exactly what we’ve done and here we are. We’ve done about 20 to 25 women’s wear, about eight menswear looks and we’ve done jewelry,” said Masaba, the first ever official Indian designer to have bagged such a big deal.
When further asked which Bollywood actors would act as the perfect muse for her latest collection she said, “Ranveer Singh because he is himself and no one can match the energy no one can really wear clothes that are so whacky, cool and funky the way he does and not look like he’s trying hard. He just looks like he woke up like that.”
She further added, “I think if it was a woman, Alia Bhatt. I think because she’s super feminine but she’s very strong. I know she is a fan of the show. She’s one of those people who is like a chameleon. She changes her style too often and I love that about her. She will do justice to the collection”
While Ranveer Singh is set to star in Karan Johar’s Takht, Alia Bhatt will be seen in Kalank which hits the theatres tomorrow. Excited much Game Of Thrones fans?
