The International Woolmark Prize Menswear Finalists announced

The Woolmark Company's International Woolmark Prize (IWP) is an annual award celebrating emerging design. Working with the most important fashion bodies globally, the prize aims to identify future design stars and showcase new and captivating interpretations of Merino wool through their collections.

The IWP crosses borders and cultures by seeking up-and-coming talent from established and rising design hubs around the globe. The regional awards are held in six regions: Asia; Australia; British Isles; Europe; India, Pakistan and Middle East; and USA. Six menswear and six womenswear finalists are then selected to compete in the IWP finals, traditionally held during key fashion weeks around the world. An important element of the prize is the commercialisation of Merino wool product within leading boutiques in each of the key regions. Equally crucial is the expert judging panel and insightful mentors who provide guidance along the way.
