STORY OF A SET DE­SIGNER

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle - Pr­erna Gauba

Meet Ab­hishek Kaushik, the man re­spon­si­ble for cre­at­ing some avant-garde sets at cou­ture week. We caught him back­stage, as he put the fin­sh­ing touches to Rahul Mishra’s set.

For how many years have you been de­sign­ing sets?

It has been 10 years. I started on a small scale and for seven years now, I have been work­ing on wed­dings and even film sets. I’m an ar­chi­tect but I love to de­sign larger-than-life sets.

How did you land up at cou­ture week?

I started with smaller fash­ion weeks but got in touch with de­sign­ers at wed­dings that I worked on. My first show for cou­ture week was two years back, also for Rahul.

What’s the best part of be­ing at fash­ion weeks?

Some­times, sets at fash­ion weeks be­come mo­not­o­nous and at times, the setup is so grand that it tends to over­power the gar­ments on the run­way. So, I love to come up with cre­ative sets that are sub­tle yet ex­per­i­men­tal, so that the at­ten­tion does not go away from the clothes. For me, giv­ing a de­signer’s per­sonal touch is cru­cial.
