Rahul Mishra Draws Pure Splendour On India Couture Week Day 3


Designer Rahul Mishra presented his collection on the third day at the ICW 2019. His 2019 couture collection took inspiration from his own observations during a trip to Monaco as well as his childhood home in Uttar Pradesh. 

The collection celebrated the same connection between the home where one is born and the home that one finds during escapades of travel, as well as the beauty of nature. 

It was indeed a dense play of florals, blended with architectural elements. Two and three-dimensional hand-embroidered surfaces had been created with Swarovski crystals and silken threads to imitate the lush greenery of rich forests and lakes. 

The vivid interpretation of the landscape and the choice of colours lend the clothes the essence of a vintage painting. Floral motifs and three-dimensional applique weaved meticulously over traditional Indian silhouettes truly elevated the look of the collection. 

The show opened with models sashaying the ramp in ivory and pastel colours. Later, some of the darker shades were blended with resplendent embroidery emblazoned on the silhouettes. 

Rahul MishraHis collection displayed churidars with intricate hand embroidery, exquisite Nehru jackets. Silk organza, silk crepe and muga silk with a gleaming texture added much glamour to the collection. His collection inspired by places called Monaco and Malhausi certainly takes one down the memory lane. “For men and women, I don’t see any difference in terms of the motifs used. Similar kind of motifs goes for both the genders. I’m now experimenting with the silhouettes. I find it very stereotypical that a particular kind of silhouette is for the men and another kind for women.” said the designer.
