Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna take mathematic precision to couture


Designer duo Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna’s latest collection of evening wear ‘Fibonacci’ portrays an architectural penchant for precision, guided by nature’s rules

August 2, 2022: Taking inspiration from millions of drops - at once a reflective ocean of whirling squares and a singular sheet of repetitive patterns – Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna’s (RGRK) latest couture collection is built for Indian dancing at a sangeet one evening and waltzing across Vienna’s historic ballrooms the next. Dramatic fabrics meet precise techniques in patterns defined by the Fibonacci wave’s irrational numbers to birth perfectly crafted garments of exquisite grace. Every design in this collection is uniform, built with clear lines and divisions. Here, RGRK presents a perfect world, returned from the brink of chaos.

This is a collection where sumptuous fabrics like nude tulles, breezy organza, and opulent velvets marvelously overlap with intricately embellished embroideries into fantastical dreamscapes of pearls, crystals and sequins. A combination of cutwork, crystals and tassels produce visual movement like in a kaleidoscope. As with the equation of whirling squares, RGRK’s Fibonacci presents clever use of metallic shine and reflection in the form of hand-embroidered origami figures. Every piece has taken around 1600 - 2000 hours to make.

In a nod to the wave patterns, Fibonacci traverses the spectrum of blues from mineral to midnight, using shades of grey, coral, hearthstone and teal to create focal points. However, at its heart, it is a nod to craft - both structural and artistic, where every piece is a study in precision.

Fibonacci brings together this iconic designer duo’s dedication to studying structure in art and architecture, transferring these learnings to design. It introduces an architect’s point of view to sarees and lehengas, weaving international silhouettes into Indian patterns for a bride and groom with a global outlook, ensuring that every garment fits well and remains light.
