Rahul Mishra presented a globally-focused collection rooted in Indian craft history to mark the end of India Couture Week. The men’s and women’s clothing line combined botanical influences with high-octane elegance as models walked the runway while artisans created embroidery art in real time. 

Mishra’s collection expanded on his recent “We The People” Paris Haute Couture Week presentation by including male and bridal alternatives. When combined with burgundy and champagne, gold sequin embroidery created a regal colour palette. Notable designs featured a tactile jumpsuit and capes and capelets of various lengths. Raniwala 1881, the jeweller partner for the production, contributed some traditional style glitz, and the makeup was maintained understated and opulent.

In a sparkling capelet, a long skirt with floral designs, and a bralet-style shirt, Shraddah Kapoor finished the presentation in a silvery lehenga. Rahul and Divya Mishra joined Kapoor on the runway, and the show-stopping model’s hair was styled in a bob with a vintage-inspired wave.

India Couture Week, now in its 16th season, was held in several sites in New Delhi, including the Taj Palace. The Fashion Design Council of India’s event took place from July 25 to August 2 and, continuing a practise that started during the pandemic, the fashion displays were also aired online so that anybody could watch.

Hyundai served as the event’s headline sponsor, and Reliance Brands and Hyundai collaborated to organise India Couture Week. Rimzim Dadu, Gaurav Gupta, Dolly J, Falguni Shane Peacock, and Ritu Kumar were among the 16 designers and brands selected to take part in the fashion week.
