Wajahat is a designer and educator. His label Raffughar epitomises his love for Crafts and Textiles which comes from Kashmir – his home.
He draws inspiration from the nature, culture and heritage and uses them in the context of contemporary design elements. Kashmir’s rich ensemble of traditional silhouettes and his own interest in exploring the different dimensions of the the Himalayan region’s motifs and calligraphy are evident in his collections. His quintessential quality of blending past and present reflects in his work. He believes that design does not happen in isolation, it happens through a synergistic and collaborative approach.
