Ace Fashion Designer Rohit Verma presents his collection ‘Black to the Future’ in an event all about inclusivity in fashion

Mumbai: Rohit Verma, ace fashion designer, known for his undaunted sense of style and 

creativity, launched his new collection in a fashion show in Mumbai recently. The collection was 

an ode to people of colour from all across the world and was called ‘Black to the Future’. 

Featuring renowned actress Daisy Shah as the showstopper, Tinkesh Kaushik, a triple amputee 

fitness trainer and model on the ramp, the show was hosted at the Uber chic True Tramm Trunk 

in Juhu. Actor and Model Dheeraj Dhoopar and Miss and Big Boss 16 fame Manya Singh 

opened the show. 

The event witnessed the footfall of the crème de la crème of the entertainment and fashion 

industry; actors, models, stylists, fashion influencers and enthusiasts sashaying down a unique 

‘rainbow carpet’ instead of the regular red carpet. This was symbolic of the support towards the 

LGBTQ+ community with an aim of paving way for an inclusive and gender positive space.

The theme of the collection ‘Black to the Future’ plays around the idea that the colour black 

which is generally looked at as an empty colour is rather one with abundance. Without black, no 

colour has any depth. Black is what adds shadows and dynamism to any piece of art. Black is 

what brings things to life by making it real. 

Speaking about the essence of his brand new collection, Designer Rohit Verma sparked a 

conversation saying, “why are we still obsessed with white culture and lifestyle while turning a 

blind eye to the rich histories and uniqueness of people of color? To me, fashion has always 

been about expression of ideas and emotions. And through this collection I want to empower 

each and everyone, no matter their colour, creed or gender”

Showstopper and Actress Daisy Shah shared her thoughts on the show and Rohit’s collection. 

“We are a country of brown people. We must celebrate what we have; our culture, our art, our 

history, our diversity. The collection was all about the strength our people carry and I was 

honored to be a part of this wonderful show.” 

Telly Actor Dheeraj Dhoopar, best known for his portrayal of Prem Bharadwaj in Sasural Simar 

Ka and Karan Luthra in Kundali Bhagya said, “People of colour are making a mark all across the 

world, yet us Indians are still chasing white culture. We should embrace our individualities. 

Rohit’s collection was truly spectacular and contemporary and I had a blast at the event today.”

The event was made possible through a fruitful collaboration between brands that partnered 

together for this special show. While True Tramm Trunk was the premium hospitality 

partner,Cocoaberry was the talent partner, Bharat & Dorris were make-up partners, Bubble was 

the communications partner and Bright media were outdoor partners.
