LFW 2013: Rahul Mishra showcases 'Sunehri' collection

Mumbai, Aug 27 : Fashion designer Rahul Mishra popularly known as 'Master of Reversible Chic' launched his handloom couture collection called 'Sunehri' on Day 4 (Monday) at the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Winter/Festive 2013 here in Mumbai.

'Sunehri' which means gold or 'just like gold' was a festive bridal wear offering to all his loyal fans.

Designer of woven textiles, Rahul's collection featured the beauty of handlooms with Genda, Gudhal, Mogra and Harisringar flower motifs.

Breaking away from his Western and fusion silhouettes for most of the garments, Rahul took the ethnic path for the very well-constructed and finished ensembles.

The hand woven textiles from Central India were turned into stunning ethereal kalidaars, bundgalas, lehengas and saris teamed with sharply tailored hand woven jackets for an international appeal.

Starting with white as the colour of beauty, Rahul gradually moved into soft pastel pink, green and yellow; then onto deep shades of orange and finally to fiery fashion hues of regal purple, red, navy and ended with dramatic black.

With 36 ensembles to tell his couture story, Rahul brought in a variety of silhouettes that were classic allowing the fragile fabrics to make a firm sartorial statement.

The kedia with sheer embroidered palazzos, woven short jacket with drape, long maxi with Gudhal flowers and the lean long tunic with Patti Bel motif, revealed Rahul's control over the display.

For a slight western touch, there was the embroidered long dress, a regal brocade sherwani and organza drape with silk brocade lehenga.

The eight saris were teamed with stylish blouses or jackets some with peplums and the solitary black brocade mini with balloon sleeves gave a hint of semi-formal western drama.

Sleek, elegant, well finished and utterly feminine, Rahul's maiden attempt at couture had his distinct piece-de-resistance mark.

Aiming to bring back the glory of the golden era of Indian handloom couture, Rahul Mishra's 'Sunehri' collection was a tribute to weavers, craftsmen and fashion.
