Originating from his native Rajasthan in India, but educated in America, Rathore is no stranger to the glamorous world of Seventh Avenue fashion. Before and immediately after graduation from Parsons school of design, New York in 1992, he gained experience with many top Manhattan labels including Donna Karan, Bill Blass and Oscar de la Renta , enabling him own label “Rathore” back in India. Rathore believes that fashion today has long ceased to be one theme, one mood, and one idea. Instead, Rathore offers a superb mix of textures, modern fabrics, slinging cuts and a vast colour palette that blinds the richness of his styles. Clever mixing of his clothes gives the customer endless choices of putting together a look for the day or for cocktail and the evening hours.
The experience of living in Manhattan, while studying and researching Design was more than a dictionary of ideas. Re-calibrating to the American sensibilities and esthetics was a challenge for a person from Jodhpur.
