"Rahul Mishra's approach to building his burgeoning brand is rooted in his respect for the provenance of his materials, the sustainability of his production lines and the necessary preservation of India's traditional craftsmanship and its craftsmen and women."

"Mishra is shaping into one of the fashion circuit's poetic storytellers, and the quiet statement of personal intent feels all the louder in the ambient din."
