Here are some of the best collection highlights and notes from the extravagant runway shows.


The ‘Renaissance Reverie’ collection by the designers was all about their love for art and the amazing things they discover during their travels. They get inspired by the vibrant colors in art and the incredible textures in embroidery. This cool combination captures the true essence of the Renaissance era, highlighting its beautiful art, architecture, and fashion. At the same time, it gives a nod to the artistic brilliance of Indian influences and inspirations. Every piece tells a story of cultural exchange and celebrates the valuable lessons learned from history. The intricate embroidery techniques and handcrafted details are a testament to the skill of the artisans, who skillfully blend the elegance of the Renaissance with Indian heritage.

With reality and imagination woven into its fabric, Rahul Mishra’s Couture 2023 collection ‘We, The People’ strives to draw the enablers of couture, the artisans, to the face of its narrative. It envisions them as the juncture where artistic expression meets age-old craft and technical prowess that allows them the godlike ability to turn imagination into reality.

The surfaces of the collection are an articulation of the fashion worker’s trance interlaced with their immediate reality. ‘We, The People’ is a work of wonderment that assumes if an embroiderer would really envision the adda (embroidery frame) turning into a lotus pond and if there is an instance when they feel themselves in the Sundarbans amidst its virgin forest, caressing a majestic tiger.
