NEW DELHI — The Woolmark prize for the India and Middle East region has been won by Indian designer Rahul Mishra.
The award was made last week at the Leela hotel here. While last year’s award was solely for India, this year The Woolmark Co. expanded the region to include the Middle East. As a result, Mishra beat out designers not only from India but also from Pakistan, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates.
