Indian Designers Rahul Mishra, Manish Arora and Kanika Jain Shine At International Fashion Weeks
The flurry of Indian designers showcasing at International Fashion Weeks keeps growing with each season. While stalwarts Rahul Mishra and Manish Arora took to the ramp once again, newcomer Kanika Jain showcased her debut collection at New York Fashion Week. Catch our favourite looks from their line ups:
The designer through his collection ‘gossamer’, tried to unravel his life’s nostalgia for us. The collection, consisting of skirts, trousers, jackets, dresses and more, spanned from whites to muted tones of blue and dark yellow. Daraz embroidery and traditional incrustations brought a hint of India to the Paris Fashion Week ramp.
Back in form, the designer’s collection at Paris Fashion Week was as bright and colourful for us, as Willi Wonka’s factory is for kids. Sexiness met athleisure through sweatshirts embroidered in jewel tones spelt out ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’, amongst track pants, skirts and more. A bold reminder of what Arora’s signature is all about.
Kanelle by Kanika Jain
Titled ‘Blue-jean Baby’, Kanelle’s collection centred around washed and treated denim, through the lens of the ’80s. Simple silhouettes and clean cuts were cleverly layered with subtle details such as pleats, fringes, tone-on-tone shades et al. On an international platform, Kanelle’s aesthetic shone simply by staying true to itself rather than playing with commonplace trends.
