‘Maraasim’, which means ‘relationships’ in Urdu, was a collection of Mishra’s signature heavily embellished gowns and lehengas with a deeply researched backstory. The collection took five months to create and some garments took up to 4,000 hours to produce alone. Mishra was particularly inspired by the Tomb of Asif Khan in Lahore, Pakistan and the Mughal art that inspired the collection could be seen in the embellishments and colour palette.

“When the first breeze of the twilight hushes through the avenues of Palms and Cypress Trees, it wakes life to a concealed beauty, of a forgotten time,” Mishra posted on his social media about the collection. “A time of visual and intellectual magnificence; of monumental architecture, sumptuous textiles, and the finest miniature paintings - all boasting a common aesthetic coherence of Mughal elegance, that is the basis.”

Mishra elected to eschew the popular trend of having a celebrity close the show but instead decided to highlight the hard work and help his wife provided. Both Rahul ad Divya Mishra’s names were announced at the end of the show. The collection was the second show on the penultimate day of India Couture Week which concluded on July 29.
