Couture that doesn’t weight you down — that seemed to be the underlying essence of designer Rahul Mishra’s collection at the ongoing India Couture Week 2017, organised by Fashion Design Council of India with Hindustan Times at its associate partner. The Woolmark Prize winner showcased his collection Parizaad on Thursday evening, which was segmented into two parts. While the first one saw calming whites, ivories and a play of pastels on saris and lightweight lehengas, the latter part had haft-rangi (seven coloured) creations on salwar-kameez and contemporary bridal outfits. Have a look at some of the designs:
Architecture inspired floral motifs with soft marble hues trended on Mishra’s ramp.
Mishra is known for his love for monochromes, so the black lehenga also made its presence felt.
Deviating from his usual style, a burst of colour took over the later part of the showcase.
Mishra said that while his creations are high on handcrafted embroideries and work, they are all lightweight and most of them can be machine-washed.
