Rohit Gandhi- Rahul Khanna
Series of evening dresses, cocktail dresses , gowns and tuxedo jackets. The inspiration is from the luminescent, whimsically irregular, and rigorously aspirational masterworks from their past.
· Textural surface ornamentation and modern hand embroideries made with heritage techniques.
· For Men the controlled use of tassels and fringes added movement and layers. The sparing use of gem coloured crystals and metallic thread embroidery added luxury to modern tailored silhouettes.
· The collection is a combination of technique and fit,
Rich gem-tones (emerald, amethyst, garnet), but also in a champagne for which sculptural ruffles take the place of any other form of ornamentation. And cocktail dresses they were black with just a hint of beige.
Men’s collection in wine, grey, sapphire, and with mostly tonal arabesques.
Rohit and Rahul on their Collection
“We have worked on a couture collection for the first time. We specialize in textural surface ornamentation and our hand embroideries are all based on old Indian crafts. So, it was a very natural transition to infuse our hand-done techniques on couture ensembles. The modern Indian bride and the groom were looking for something unusual, which is global yet traditional. We believe our collection with its emphasis on sculpted silhouettes softened with sensual shimmer is apt for the modern bride and groom who are breaking conventions by trying unusual silhouettes for their big day.”
