In SHE’s April/May Issue: Rahul Mishra

Karl Lagerfield, Yves Saint Laurent, and Rahul Mishra all have something huge in common. They've all been winners of the International Woolmark Prize. This past February, five finalists duked it out during Milan Fashion Week with wool yarns on the runway. The five finalists—Altuzarra, Rahul Mishra, Sibling, Christopher Esber, and ffiXXed—each presented a six-piece collection to a panel of judges that included Vogue Italia’s Franca Sozzani, It-girl Alexa Chung, and Gucci’s Frida Giannini. After many wool creations were debuted, judges selected Mishra as a deserving winner. Along with receiving $100,000 cash, Mishra's line will be sold at Harvey Nichols, Saks Fifth Avenue, 10 Corso Como, Joyce, David Jones, Colette and "I am very proud that I could show a new side of Indian fashion," said the newly awarded fashion designer. "It is a big movement for my brand and the highest point in my career. Nevertheless, it’s just the beginning." Read the full story in SHE's April/May issue on newsstands this April!
