Rishabh Manocha is a New York City based menswear designer and bespoke tailor. He is a protege of fifth-generation Savile Row tailor, Rory Duffy. Trained in classical menswear design at Parsons School of Design, Manocha also went onto studying at London's Central St. Martins.
His technical and conceptual abilities afforded him opportunities at companies such as Mr. Porter, John Varvatos, Comme des Garcons, Prada and Brioni amongst others.
Today, he works hand in glove with Duffy to deliver the very best form, function and finesse a garment can boast of. From handcraft accessories to complete wardrobe overhauls, he envisions each client's needs from a unique perspective. An avid advocate of the inherent sustainability of custom clothing, he endeavors to educate and empower his clients with the discerning sensibility to invest in pieces that will stand the test of time.
Rory Duffy is a fifth generation, Savile Row trained, award winning Master Tailor. Founder of The Handcraft Tailor Academy and former lecturer of Parsons the New School.
"Through out my career I have championed many causes, aspiring youth who showed the same feverant persuit to master the art of Handcraft Tailoring.
Not least of these has been Rishabh Manocha. Our first encounter was during my contribution to the league of extraordinary talent that made up the staff of Parsons the New School.
Rishabh showed a keen eye for design matched only by his soft hands for tailoring.
I recognised in Rishabh a strength and determination to succeed with the artistry of creation in his left hand and Savile Row tailoring in his right. A combination of two great skills that was the awe and envy of others.
My belief in Rishabh has never faltured and to ensure his continued success I have given him my full support and guidance to assist his future endeavours, to call upon when ever required."
