New Delhi: Fashion designer Rahul Mishra, who won the International Woolmark Prize (IWP) in Milan earlier this year, has launched his award winning collection in Sydney.
Inspired by the works of a graphic artist Maurits Cornelis Escher, the six-piece collection was launched Tuesday, and it will be sold through David Jones store in Sydney. Mishra is thrilled.
"It is going to be really great for our brand on the commercial front, getting into these stores is a dream for any designer. The international exposure since winning the award has been immense and has provided us global coverage like never before," Mishra said in a statement.
His range, made of lightweight Merino wool, features progressive hand embroidery and its designs reflect the lifecycle of wool -- the journey it takes from it's natural state to the concrete cities where it's redesigned and reinvented.
The collection will be stocked in Australia by David Jones, and will retail internationally in Harvey Nichols in London, Saks Fifth Avenue in New York, 10 Corso Como in Milan, Colette in Paris, Joyce in Hong Kong, Isetan Mitsukoshi in Japan and online at mytheresa.com.
