Rahul Mishra, the first Indian to win International Woolmark Prize, is all set to showcase his elegant spring-summer collection looks on the runways of Paris. This time Zoya has collaborated with the designer by providing  some of their finest and rare jewellery collections that complement the enriching collection of Mishra. Rahul’s this year’s flowy, flowery and breezy collection is inspired by some of his dearest memories from his garden. The patterns and colours of the attires reflect his memories.

The collection is mostly hand-woven as he feels, “Anything that doesn't include human touch or intervention doesn’t work for me. According to me, neither machine embroidery nor hand-weaving can be labelled as the better work. However, whatever can provide more employment to the brilliant artisans of our country is good enough for me.” Both design houses excelled in translating sublime traditional crafts into an authentic as well as unique and modern design language with a global perspective.
