Rahul Mishra’s Roman Triumph On Day 3 Of Lotus Makeup India Fashion Week

Text by Varun Rana

After almost half a decade, Rahul Mishra returned to the ready-to-wear ramp at LMIFW SS2019

Fresh off the success of his Paris Fashion Week show (with a glowing review from Suzy Menkes), Rahul Mishra pulled off something most designers wouldn’t be able to: a repeat as good as the first. For his Spring 2019 collection, the Delhi-based designer created a collection separate from the one he showed in Paris only a week ago, but well in the same vein.

He wove diaphanous Maheshwari silks in the patterns of Madras checks that were popular in the ’90s, and used navy stripes to contrast with bunches of flowers embroidered in his signature French knots. “I try to show looks that can be worn differently by different people,” he said after the show. And you can see it for yourself. His light blazers embellished with floral motifs would look as good with a pair of jeans as they do when he layers them over a maxi dress cut on the bias. 

At this time in his career, his aesthetic has evolved to a point that it looks almost faultless. And his choice to return to the ready-to-wear calendar—he has only shown his Indian haute couture collections at Couture Week for the last 4 years — is a welcome one.
