Rahul Mishra – Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week AW 2012-13
This show is my favourite for the day 4 at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week!!
Rahul Mishra’s autumn/winter 2012 collection is an exciting experiment with combination of similar opposites in terms of yarn and fabric structure. The fashion designer drew inspiration from sportswear to create sophisticated yet peppy ensembles in hand woven fabrics primarily consisting of silk, merino wool, chanderi, chiffons and jersey. A steady backdrop of warm and cool neutrals counterbalances brighter pastel shades. The garments are constructed using seamless patterns resulting in Rahul Mishra’s signature strong cuts, yet encompassing an uncomplicated look.
The first sequence of outfits was primarily in black with a sensational play of lines and panels – which remains Rahul Misra’s forte. Seam lines were highlighted in neon and electric details in dresses, tunics, saris and jumpsuits. Asymmetry was a very salient design element in Rahul Mishra’s garments which continued to prevail in almost every other ensemble throughout the show.
The latter half of the garments shimmered and dazzled in gold. While the silhouettes of Rahul Mishra of essentially modern and contemporary the true soul were completely rested in the traditional multi-coloured jagalbandi border, jersey details, crochet, hand embroidery.
Full length garments in shades of mulberry pink, teal and blue finished the show for Rahul Mishra who was received by a thunderous round of applause as he took a bow!
