International Woolmark Prize 2013 Finalists
The International Woolmark Prize sets out to find the most innovative wool designer in the world, with entrants from all over the globe competing against each other to win $100,000 AUD and the chance to have their collection retailed globally in high end stores such as Harvey Nichols and Bergdorf Goodman.
All the finalist designers will be joined in London by judges Victoria Beckham, Donatella Versace, Diane Von Furstenberg, Tim Blanks, and Carla and Franca Sozanni for the exclusive grand finale show taking place during London Fashion Week.
‘The International Woolmark Prize guarantees the winning designer invaluable financial assistance and exposure in some of the world’s best stores. It is clearly an unbeatable opportunity for the winner, but it also offers wool itself a chance to reassert its relevance. Unbeatably versatile, endlessly adaptable, the fibre positions itself for the future with the new profile that comes with the prize.’ – Tim Blanks
