Rahul Mishra's Superheroes Couture Spring Collection 2024
Rahul Mishra regards these little creatures that crawled the surface of the earth from times before as architects of our habitable biome. Calling the collection Superhero, the designer builds on this belief. Impeccable execution brought alive butterflies, moths, and dragonflies on sieves through meticulous embroidery. The details are lined with the same discerning eye as that of an experienced entomologist.
The haute couturier's collection featured multiple silhouettes including conventional and 3-Dimensional pieces. Black, gold, and silver hues scored large on the runway, while a slew of bright colors also made appearances. Of course, the embroidery that shape-shifted into bugs and reptiles, highlighted their beauty as nature intended them to be seen as.
