Rahul Mishra is “stunned with the response” to his debut show at Paris Fashion Week (PFW) Spring/Summer 2015. He gives credit to West Bengal craftsman for his marvellous collection, which not only helped him make a mark in the international fashion circuit, but also helped him in wooing global buyers.
Thanks to the show, Mishra is busy taking orders from buyers across the globe.
Sharing his experience about his debut show at PFW, Mishra said it was “super fun”, especially when veteran fashion expert Suzy Menkes complimented him for his contribution to Indian handloom.
“Spent some time with Suzy Menkes and she loved it (the collection). She loved the detailing on clothes and said the craftsmanship was extremely detailed,” Mishra said.
“She was also curious to know about rural India and said you are doing a big favour to fashion,” said the designer, who is also engaged in empowering and employing Indian craft community through his sustainable design interventions.
