Rahul Mishra’s 22-month-old daughter, Aarna Mishra, did not seem to have any stage jitters as she made her runway debut for her father’s couture collection ‘Parizaad’ at the FDCI Couture Collection 2017. Though the little one did not walk alongside the models, and made only a brief appearance carried by her mother Divya – she completely stole the show.
“The collection was inspired from ancient Persian, Roman and Byzantine architecture and I have used intricate geometric patterns, tiles of flowers and mosaics of nature emphasising great design aesthetics from a time when human skills were divine,” says the designer who is also working on a collection for his showcase in Paris in September.
Needless to say, every garment was handmade. “Some have taken a few thousand man hours because every stitch has to be precise,” Mishra points out.
Here’s a sneak-peek at the collection. Tell us what you think!
