'Lotus Pond' is an ode to the evolving ecosystem of aquatic plants, fishes, planktons, dragonflies and butterflies - all brought together by the sublime lotus.
This is one of the most significant collections for us, an organic extension of the Paris Haute Couture collection. An integral part of our New Delhi team are our kaarigars (hand embroiderers and tailors) who are the foundation of our brand. We are a large family - that includes hundreds of people including local craftsmen and workers. Today we collectively acknowledge the value of their work and the art they create. This gives us a deep sense of joy and nourishment to return to our studio.
Through this collection as a creative expression we are served a reminder of the quote by Hans Christian Anderson, that indeed just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.

In an interview with vogue
“Today, if I feel there is no dream too big to dream, it is because of the knowledge that our craftsmen can bring it to life. It is the artisan that allows me the confidence to see the world as I do, to dream, to create”
The Genesis of 3d embroidery
"We have pushed to discover new frontiers in our exploration of three dimensional embroidery that lends a distinct shape shifting essence to the silhouette. The entire ecosystem comes alive through intricately hand-embroidered flora and fauna that strike a balance between realism and imagination."

Rahul Mishra, the Indian designer who goes far beyond his country’s fashion clichés of vivid colours and sari prints, sent out one of those rare collections of quiet beauty . . . The delicacy of the knits, which were so fine that they could barely be identified as wool on the runway, was breathtaking.Suzy Menkes / International Editor, VOGUE Worldwide
Despite his explicit intention to not create art for art’s sake, acquiring Mishra couture is comparable to acquiring art. To see more in nature than already exists, to credit it as more than just trees or butterflies, is in fact the purpose of a creator, and the answer to his deliberations that he perhaps doesn't see yet.
In a world of memes, the anti-memesic position of “Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life,” comes true here.Rujuta Vaidya / VOGUE India
Rahul Mishra based his collection on the art of embroidery, which is typical of his culture, blending it with a modern and accurate technique, thus successfully highlighting the best and most peculiar features of his homeland.Late Franca Sozzani / Ex-Editor-in-chief, VOGUE Italia
