2017 marked the runway debut for both Misha Kaura and her eponymous brand. Before this week, she was working furiously to perfect the art of sewing and incorporate her research as a chemist into her line of inclusive dresses. It was only in May of this year that Kaura, a respected skin cancer researcher, decided to make the transition from science to fashion. But what an impressive job she did changing over.
Misha Kaura dresses, according to the brand’s first couture collection, are elegant and classic without the stuffiness sometimes associated with formalwear. Featuring a versatile mix of shimmering metallics and floral inlays, these dresses are conventional in structure while maximizing the wonders of modern science to create an inclusive modern look. It’s an impressive achievement for Misha, harnessing her research skills to craft suction-enabled designs able to flatter all shapes and sizes. These are dresses that subtly accommodate pesky stretchmarks and even post-baby body weight.
In mere months, Misha Kaura is already setting the bar high for those who aspire to combine research smarts with fashion sense. This freshman spring collection bodes well for inclusive runways to come and puts Kaura’s name on the map as a designer well worth studying up on.
