There were hashtags on the show notes at Rahul Mishra’s spring show, which he’d named Fourth Dimension: #fourthdimension, #4D, #craft, #embroidery, #handskills, #india, #futurefrompast.


The Delhi-based designer, the winner of the 2014 International Woolmark Prize and a specialist in delicately hand-embroidered outfits, said the collection was about “enhancing 3-D with human hands.” The resulting effect was whimsical, with 3-D scalloped tops mimicking fish scales or peacock feathers. Mishra’s technique — which worked best on a crop top paired with organza palazzo pants or on a denim bomber jacket worn with woven pleated shorts — created looks that should easily fit into the wardrobes of his existing customers.
