Rahul Mishra's bridal wear collection 'Kam-Khab' explores the story of embroidery at India Couture Week
Rahul Mishra launched a richly cultured bridal and couture collection titled ‘Kam-Khab’ at India Couture Week online, as a medley of opulent garments created in the designer’s atelier during numerous lockdowns.
The collection was made up of close to 50 ensembles, each of which displayed Mishra’s signature delicate yet maximalist craft techniques. Clothing for both men and women featured thousands of 3D embroidered flowers and the digital presentation allowed for slow-motion close-ups of the intricate handiwork of Mishra’s team of artisans.
As models wandered around the serene walled garden and corridors of an ancient palace, the hues of the peeling murals were echoed in the subtle yet vibrant tones of the collection’s lehengas, waistcoats, and sarees. As the models gathered together to joyfully dance in the courtyard, the effortless movement of the garments showcased their precise construction and gave the impression of a garden in full bloom.
“This line is an outcome of the journey of the brand; what it has faced, it is more of a state of being and has been done at its own pace,” said Mishra about the new couture collection, the Fashion Design Council of India reported.
India Couture Week ran from August 23 to 29 with a group of 19 Indian couture brands. The online edition was the fashion week’s second to date since going online during the pandemic. Organised by the Fashion Design Council of India in association with the Hindustan Times, the fashion week pioneered a fusion of technology and craft heritage.
