Internationally acclaimed Indian designer Rahul Mishra says his range ‘Gossamer’ was inspired by his childhood memories at the ongoing Lotus Make-Up India Fashion Week (LMIFW).
Mishra, who presented his line at the Paris Week Fashion Week last month, showcased over 25 garments made of fabrics he truly loves — chanderis, maheshwaris and banarasis.
“My inspiration was my childhood... I play with my three-year-old daughter everyday, so when I’m with her I think about my own childhood,” said Mishra.
He added that he remembered the “cushion covers” and the “pure white linens” used at homes for the range.
The collection showcased his undying love for pastel shades and white.
“I wanted to take the craft of daraz and chikankari and elevate them to luxury fashion. Because memory is a luxury. The way we hold on to smells, colours and textures,” added Mishra.
The four-day fashion event concludes on Saturday with a show titled ‘Rainbow’, celebrating the Supreme Court’s decision to repeal the Section 377.
