INTERVIEW THE DESIGNER: THE NEW SEASON EDIT| July 26, 2016
Rohini is a Designer at MGHQ which means that all the new pieces you see hit New In, Rohini has had a hand in creating. We caught up with her to chat about what it’s like working at Missguided and what cool new trends we’ve got hitting for AW16…
Hey, tell us a bit about your role as a designer…
Working in design is pretty cool, we get to take inspiration from absolutely everywhere and have the freedom to create new concepts all the time.
What’s the best thing about working at Missguided?
100% coming into the coolest HQ everyday! Who doesn’t want a meeting on a swing or lunch in the rainforest garden?!
So, tell us about the new season drop for AW16…
I can’t say much but expect…a pop of colour, 70s cool & of course Yeezy season vibes!
Which trends have you explored?
There’s a trend coming soon that I absolutely love… Think metallic, coppers, olives and armoured glamour.
Which designers did you look to for inspo?
If I had to choose one designer it would have to be Balmain of course but at the moment I live for Instagram inspo! Shout out @oliviaculpo for looking amazing in everything
What’s the one thing we should definitely be looking out for?
Frills! I feel like noone used to like a frill but this season they are massive! You’ll find them dropping for our Romance trend, so think winter florals, laces and deep velvets.
What did you have the most fun designing?
It’s so hard to pick one trend but I think for AW it has to be party season! So… ALL things sequin & glitter! We have some amazing pieces this year that all the girls in design are already fighting over for the Christmas party!
If you could choose anyone to wear your designs, who would it be?
Gigi & Bella Hadid are my fave at the moment so I would love to see them in a jumpsuit I’ve designed! And obviously Kendall & Kylie, who wouldn’t want them two in their designs! #SisterGoals
What are your favourite pieces from the collection?
I love the longline twinsets and all the bombers we’ve got dropping soon!
