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.
