Rahul Mishra showcases his Parizaad collection on Day 3 of Print Fashion Week Season 3: See Pics

if you are the eco-positive and conscious bride, take your pick from Mishra’s collection.

Custom-made creations deserve not only the right occasion, but also an intelligent thought to back them. If you are a conscious consumer who cares about the varied facets of sustainability — minimising environmental harm, maximising employment and utility — then Rahul Mishra’s collection, Parizaad, is for you. “The collection includes all-cotton looks (a rarity in wedding wear) and handcrafted couture pieces that can be washed at home, increasing wearability,” he says. “We have also experimented with lots of elements — From using architecture-inspired haft rang (seven colours), to the floral jaal, and three-dimensional embroidery techniques,” he adds.

So, if you are the eco-positive and conscious bride, take your pick from Mishra’s collection.

Ditch lehengas that will weigh you and your style down. This contemporary piece brings together floral motifs and the unusual combination of bright yellow and indulgent blue. (Jasjeet Plaha/HT Photo)

With comfort being a pivot to Mishra’s collection, these separates are perfect for your day mehendi, or even if you are a part of the bridal entourage. (Jasjeet Plaha/HT Photo)

The geometric, oriental touch to the floral embroidery combined with the neo-romantic, foliage-inspired edge to the dupatta makes the look stand out. (Jasjeet Plaha/HT Photo)

The creations also salute the beauty of nature. The gold and white combination is classic, and the beauty is in the intricate details. (Jasjeet Plaha/HT Photo)

Mishra speaks about the zen-like feel in the collection, and this lehenga is a testament to his thought. The calming creams with just a dash of colour is reception-perfect. (Jasjeet Plaha/HT Photo)
