Imagine the joy of a film making student if he gets an opportunity to assist a Shoojit Sircar or a Karan Johar? It will be his biggest dream come true! At Pearl Academy, four students experienced the same high when they were chosen by the ace designer Rahul Mishra to assist him at the world’s biggest fashion extravaganza – Paris Fashion Week!
The holy grail of all fashion designers, Paris Fashion Week is the mecca for fashion designers across the world. No matter how much success they enjoy at home and abroad, showcasing their collection at PFW is the zenith they aspire to reach in their careers.
“A national treasure” is how famed fashion critic Suzy Menkes has described Indian designer Rahul Mishra. A previous winner of the International Woolmark Prize, he has been showing in Paris for four seasons now – and will take to the ramp in the fashion capital again during Paris Fashion Week in October. Though Rahul Mishra has become truly international considering his label retails out of Paris’s Collette and London’s Harvey Nichols, he still takes pride in his Indian roots Rahul Mishra has been closely associated with Pearl Academy and took six students from Pearl Academy’s Fashion Design course to PFW in 2015 also.
The four students who got the chance of a lifetime to assist Rahul Mishra at PFW this year are- – Vibhuti Bhatt, Jyoti Yadav, Damanjeet Singh, and Radhika Garg all studying fashion. Jyoti Yadav, who also had the opportunity to work with Rahul Mishra, shares her views on his working style, “Rahul Mishra is an extremely humble person who takes no pride in the work he does. A true mentor who would take out time very now and then to share with us the true picture of the industry, yet motivating us to do better each day. He is the role-model we need at this juncture of our careers.”
With butterflies in their stomach and rosy dreams in their eyes, the students are all set to take a giant leap in their careers by making their Paris dreams come true! Excitement is running high and we wish that all this excitement translates into a dazzling show at Paris!
