Prachi Mishra

MA work

My work at the RCA has been a journey in defining my personal aesthetic and inspirations. Having previously worked in contexts including craft, development, fashion, forecasting and production, I am interested in joining the dots between fashion and social innovation.

My final work is a women’s fashion collection inspired by memories of dancing to an old radio in my grandmother’s house in India. I have used textile techniques to play with patterns in post-industrial paraphernalia, optical illusions and moiré.
