“We create clothes we love. We believe in them and their potential to change people’s lives”, this is how Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna describe their contemporary label. The designer duo is known for their modern silhouettes, experimenting with shapes in a linear form and attention to detail. Launched in the year 1997, the label has achieved significant recognition amongst the new generation with almost two decades of experience.
Highly influenced by modern contemporary art, their designs are shaped with the help of linear structures and geometric lines. The clean silhouettes have become a signature style of their label. Their collection is available nationwide in multi-designer stores and boutiques, and they even have three of their standalone stores.
14th February: Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna celebrated their 20 years in the industry with their first ever couture show presenting womenswear and menswear called ‘An Evening Of Reflections’. The goal was to represent their label’s stupendous journey, and the spectacular showcase achieved that and more. The vibe of the collection was glamorous, but the silhouettes were in line with the designers’ aesthetics.
As the name of the show suggested, the inspirations of the collection were archive pieces from the past that gave direction to the contemporary silhouettes of the future. The hues of silver and metallic tones with a touch of crystalline blue were amplified by luxurious fabrics like frosted silks, fine-grained tulles and crisp suiting organza. The designers’ forte of paying attention to details was evident through the handcrafted techniques like appliqué work, laser cutwork and hand beading. Swarovski crystals were utilised to enhance this handiwork further.
The showcase of 40 ensembles spoke the true essence of the label which is their excellence in constructing unique contemporary silhouettes. “We have seen fashion grow and are proud to have contributed to the industry. We have used techniques, silhouettes and designs that together create a perfect combination of mystery and glamour.”, that’s how Rohit and Rahul described the collection, which marked a huge milestone of their career.
Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna‘s collection called ‘An Evening Of Reflections’ was a true testament to their two decades of hard work and encompassed the modern edgy details and silhouettes that were mesmerising.
