New Delhi, July 25 (IANS) Fashion designer Rahul Mishra's unique wool creation, which attempted to portray the journey of human race and the process of metamorphosis that our planet has undergone in the last century, has won him a chance to compete for the International Woolmark Prize in Milan next year.
