Designer Rahul Mishra brings Monaco on ICW 2019 stage

New Delhi, July 25 Ace designer Rahul Mishra enthralled everyone with his annual couture collection on the third day of the FDCI India Couture Week (ICW) 2019 on Wednesday. The ensemble was inspired by his recent trip to Monaco and his childhood memories of a village in Uttar Pradesh.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

The set for the show was created to look like the streets of Monaco, surrounded by Europeon facades and lush foliage that continued into the garments that the models walk in.

The International Woolmark Prize winner showcased the collection which was in continuation with his autumn/winter 2019 couture collection at Paris Fashion Week — but with Indian influences.

“It was a new journey for me to showcase a short western dress that I showcased at Paris into something which fits to the Indian couture idea — say a ”gherdaar” lehenga. We have been working on the collection since November,” Mishra told reporters here.

He has used Indian silhouettes with a dense play of florals motifs weaved with intricate multi-colour hand embroideries, three-dimensional hand embroideries and appliques. There were lehengas, anarkalis with jackets, sarees with dupattas and gowns, and kurta-churidaar with intricate hand embroidered nehru jackets, rendered in silk organzas, silk crepe and muga silk with shimmering, glossy texture.

The entire collection was set on ivory and pastels colours that took over to gold, yellow, navy and peaches. The designer also showcased quintessential red bridal lehenga with zardozi work.

“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 stereotype that a particular kind of silhouette is for the men and another for women.”
