International Woolmark Prize Announce Advisory Council And Nominees


More fashion prizes. Keep ’em coming. The 2018 International Woolmark Prize nominees have been announced, and the United Kingdom is being represented pretty damn well with nine semi-finalists including A-Cold Wall*, Alex Mullins, Daniel W. Fletcher, Edward Crutchley, Liam Hodges, Marta Jakubowski, Nicholas Daley, Richard Malone and Steventai. Boom. As for the panel or Advisory Council as they’re known, 10 is all up in it with our BFF’s from across the pond at 10 Australia, Editor Alison Veness and Associate Editor Rebecca Khoury joining 10 contributor Colin McDowell alongside Tim Blanks, Jefferson Hack, Christine Centenera, Diet Prada, Catherine Baba, Sara Sozzani Maino, Gert Jonkers and Christiane Arp. A fiercely good panel of advisors. With more than 300 designers from across 46 countries entering, the nominees have been whittled down to 42 designers who will go forward into the regional semi-finals to be held in Hong Kong, London and New York City in July. The winners within each region then go into the finals. No mucking about here. Finalists will receive approximately £40,000 to invest in the development of their collection, along with mentoring. May the best designer win.
