A fashion collection inspired by sign language

Mumbai-based Mishé that was showcased at the Lakme Fashion Week last October, brings its sign language-inspired collection to Chennai

Designer Bhumika Ahluwalia has often dreamt of showcasing her collection at a coveted fashion week, walking the ramp with a showstopper and taking a bow in front of the audience. The first part of her dream came true last October when she debuted her label Mishé at the Lakme Fashion Week, under the Gen Next Category.
