Designer Raghavendra Rathore opened his eponymous designer store with the latest menswear collection at Road No. 10, Banjara Hills in Hyderabad. The store is spread across 1,700 sq.ft of space with Raghavendra Rathore’s bespoke boutique showcasing vast collection of men’s tailored and ethnic samples, specially woven in looms across the rich landscape of India.
“Hyderabad has been known for its penchant for luxury, elegance and contemporary style and introducing the Bandhgala to this city that has its roots in royalty is exciting. The city has its own unique individualistic style, and yet we believe that our customers will accept the Bandhgala for its timeless quality that has evolved to be a part of a modern, stylish man’s wardrobe,” Rathore said.
The designer has worked with DKNY and Oscar de la Renta before launching his own label in 1994 under the Rathore Jodhpur brand. His reputation for the classic tailored look and a sharp cut gave him access to a sophisticated clientele. His metamorphosis of the Jodhpur bandhgala jacket and a new cut for the classic bandhgala suit has given him a respectable place in Indian fashion history.
Rathore’s contribution for making the designs synonymous with Indian heritage and resilient to the fads of fashion, has earned him acknowledgement by the Rajasthan state government.
