First look: Raghavendra Rathore’s line
The designer returns to LFW with sharp tailoring and a new prêt line
Designer Raghavendra Rathore returns to the runway, with three three capsule collections. The show starts with his eponymous bespoke label, and it’s followed by the debut of Rathore’s ready-to-wear line: The Imperial India Company, inspired by the British Raj. And it concludes with an introduction to the work done by the Raghavendra Rathore Foundation, which works closely with artisans to reinvent textiles like khadi, silks and other hand-woven fabrics. “This presentation is a strong attempt in making ‘Made in India’ a prosperous and fashionable sentiment,” says Rathore.
