‘Kamkhab’ is a sequence of dreams woven together like a garland of artistic musing, of emotions and of instances that that we’ve subconsciously lived through, multiple times in our minds. Like an emotion of personalised artistry, it is the hand painting of frescos on the walls of a family home. Similar to love poems, hand embroidered on a piece of clothing, delicately holding together dreams and reality.

The collection, 'The Shape of Air' is a dive into curious childlike observations - an attempt to recreate in couture, the Aegean sea as sun throws glitter on its surface, our very own blue sky with soft white clouds and salty wind that flows through the streets of Santorini. Also the cityscape, the architecture that is unique to the city, rendered in silken threads like lego blocks fixed atop a volcanic rock. The houses, cafes, churches and flowers soaked in the humid air around them.

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
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
