Rishabh Manocha

Rishabh Manocha is a New York City based designer and bespoke tailor who established his eponymous label in 2017.  An alum of Parsons School of Design and Central Saint Martins, Manocha credits his education with Savile Row tailors for the technical soundness that complements his conceptual designs.

Artisanal integrity, sartorial heritage and the form-function dialogue are integral aspects of Manocha's work. Expounding norms of bespoke tailoring as a means to understanding the human psyche is a fundamental tenet of the label. He travels across the United States, the UK and the Middle East to cater to his discerning clientele.

Deeply driven by sustainability, ethical sourcing practices and transparent supply chain, Manocha is currently co- creative director of Lehzaa, a womenswear label, in co-creation with his design partner, Oman-based Mrunal Khimji (@mrunalkhimji). For information visit @lehzaa_official
