ABOUT THE MISHA KAURA LABEL
Misha Kaura is a fashion technology-first label with a highly innovative colour theory and von Luschan scale-based approach to every touchpoint in the design process. Invited into the British Fashion Council in 2021 and the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture in 2019, Misha Kaura the label intends to join both at the conclusion of prototype development and M&A (see below). In-person shows resume from January 2025 on the calendar. Unlike others, we do not do bridal or red carpet looks; the label is based on a singular, well merchandised design vision for a particular type of woman. Darlinghurst Enterprises Ltd. is being renamed Misha Kaura Ltd. and Rapid Vocab Ltd. is being renamed Styling Science Ltd.
ABOUT STYLING SCIENCE
Styling Science Ltd. is the world's first independent fashion technology AI that solves styling problems by categorisation. It will remain independent from the Misha Kaura Ltd. organisation and offer a platform for side projects including speeches, a new styling podcast, etc.

ABOUT HER STYLING RESEARCH
Misha Kaura (she/her/hers) is interested in the science of style. She is actively working on papers, research conference presentations, etc.
ABOUT THE M&A
Misha Kaura (she/her/hers) is selling both linguistics (right now) and pharmaceuticals (post-IND). Whilst Misha was initially going to give up her fashion dream to pursue pharmaceuticals full-time, instead she is taking on a short-term role until preclinical studies are done and then selling to a larger rare disease company. Angels investing will see an immediate return at the end of 2023 or early 2024 as Misha wants to focus on fashion and her personal happiness moving forward. A Stanford MBA is in charge of the 'early exit' M&A process. Misha's equity proceeds will clear out all outstanding fashion business debts and provide a rock solid foundation for her fashion business moving forward.
ABOUT THE CEO POSITION
Misha Kaura the label is seeking an INSEAD MBA who speaks English, French, and Italian fluently and who has at least two years of post-MBA experience at McKinsey & Co. for a high-visibility position as CEO. The start date is immediately after the IND of the pharmaceutical project is approved by the EMA, FDA, etc. The ideal candidate will facilitate and close key deals and opportunities identified by Misha, one of which involves using the INSEAD alumni network and the other of which will be closed by using the McKinsey & Co. alumni network. The end result will be a beautifully merchandised, operationally world-class firm that sets the stage for the future.
