The WIFW A/W 2010 had the ubiquitous honor of having become the first fashion runway where the designer duo David Abraham and Rakesh Thakore presented their brilliant collection under their label Abraham & Thakore. Their creations are well known and much in demand desired for their simple elegance and clean lines and the line presented did not stray from this as stylish garments made of wool, cotton, shantung, silk, jamdani, georgette, velvet, khadi etc appeared on the ramp in shades of black and white. Discreet embellishments, patchwork and appliqués and quaint motifs across pants, kurtas, phirans, zouave pants, and even saris, were all lovely. The designers Abraham and Thakore are both graduates of NID Ahemdabad. Singapore born David Abraham is the creative director of the label. His first design collection was launched at the up market Bergdorf Goodman in New York. Rakesh Thakore, who involves himself with the design and development end of the business, has had his fabulous hand woven fabrics exhibited at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Musee des Arts Decoratifs n Paris. Another part of the label team is Kevin Nigli, a NIFT Delhi alumni, who is director of sales and is responsible for the menswear shirt collection.
