The designer will be showing an extension of his Paris Haute Couture fall 2023 collection at the Delhi show.
Fashion designer Rahul Mishra will conclude the 16th edition of India Couture Week (ICW), where he will present his latest collection.
The ICW showcase, organized by the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) in collaboration with Hyundai Motor India, is scheduled to run from July 25 to August 2 at venues in Delhi. The list of participating designers includes Anamika Khanna, Dolly J, Falguni Shane Peacock, Gaurav Gupta, JJ Valaya, Kunal Rawal, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Rimzim Dadu, Ritu Kumar, Rohit Gandhi Rahul Khanna, Rose Room, Samant Chauhan, Shantanu Nikhil, Suneet Varma, Tarun Tahiliani and Varun Bahl.
Mishra will show an extension of the fall 2023 couture collection that he presented at Haute Couture Week in Paris earlier this month. The Paris collection, which included more than 30 garments, showcased the slow manual labor of Rahul Mishra’s atelier.
According to a press release, Mishra’s collection is based on the “core belief of uplifting artisans and highlighting Indian culture through ‘We The People’ initiatives that strive to bring couture enablers, the artisans, to the face of this narrative.”
“With this showcase, we celebrate the marriage of cutting-edge technology and traditional values of simpler, more sustainable living that will shape the future,” the designer said in the statement.
FDCI Chairman Sunil Sethi said that given the season’s emphasis on Indian crafts, Mishra was the perfect choice for the finale as his collection pays tribute to the Indian artisan.
