Celebrate Heritage with Abhinav Mishra's Reflections

  • Celebrate Heritage with Abhinav Mishra's Reflections

Celebrated couturier Abhinav Mishra's eponymous label is known for its glamorous Indian wear, which effortlessly marries Indian art and architecture with modern sensibilities. The designer recently presented REFLECTIONS, a spectacle where old-world charm meets glamour, heritage meets superlative craftsmanship, and mirrors bring to life the magic of eras bygone.

Echoing Mishra's journey, REFLECTIONS is the perfect amalgamation of the designer's favourite couture pieces from over the years, including his resort wear, bridal collection, and menswear. Reflections truly celebrates Mishra's journey as a designer, creator, and even person over the past few years.

Renowned for dressing celebrities like Sonam Kapoor, Aditi Rao Hydari, Parineeti Chopra, Sonam Bajwa, Genelia Deshmukh, Janhvi Kapoor, Karan Johar, Ananya Panday, Rakul Preet, Sara Ali Khan, Shahid Kapoor, Ayushmann Khurrana and others, Mishra has carved a niche for himself with his exquisite mirror work.

Not only has Mishra single-handedly revived this traditional embroidery form, but has also seamlessly woven it into contemporary fashion, making it accessible and appealing to a broader audience. His ability to infuse magic into every stitch has garnered him widespread acclaim. Therefore, it is no surprise that the central design element of Reflections is the surrealistic and enchanting mirror work —a testament to his commitment to craftsmanship and innovation.

 

Reflections serve as a poignant mirror, reflecting his remarkable journey—a tapestry woven with threads of perseverance, creativity, and dreams. Mishra celebrates minimalism and maximalism within its folds and seamlessly balances the two. Despite being a relatively new brand in the industry, Mishra has imagined a world beyond boundaries, a world where love, hope and ambition know no limits. 

With Reflections, Abhinav Mishra presents a stunning and broad colour palette across a wide range of silhouettes, including lehengas, anarkalis, and shararas, all adorned with Mishra's signature mirror work. The colour palette is equally enchanting, spanning rani pink, powder blue, ivory, cream, sapphire blue, deep tones of maroon and more. A bride is the star of her special day, and her wedding and all the accompanying festivals of the year bloom in the hearts of her friends and family. Each and every ensemble that Abhinav creates is for a day as special as that.

Over the years, while Abhinav has adapted more modern techniques and glamour, he has ensured that his label retains its old-world soul. His transformative vision has always aimed to redefine couture through larger-than-life experiences and ensembles that reflect the dynamic and evolved sensibilities of today's strong and independent woman.

Speaking about it, Mishra says, "My aim has always been to create larger-than-life experiences that bring my vision to life and my collections that reflect the dynamic and evolved sensibilities of the strong independent woman of today.”

Abhinav Mishra is one of India's fastest-growing designer brands, and his designs reflect the constantly evolving, dynamic and diverse India we live in. His eponymous label, launched in 2014, celebrates the complex relationship that fashion and the country's rich crafts share, creating clothes for the young, globally inclined Indian women who are in tune with the international sensibilities of fashion and style while being honest with their ethnic aesthetic. 

Pieces from Abhinav Mishra's label are available across online portals, offering easy access to his exquisite designs for fashion enthusiasts worldwide.
