Textile competition winner
Posted on: Wednesday 15th May 2019
Congratulations to Amy Jordan who is the Welsh winner of the Wool4School competition.
Wool4School is an annual student design competition encouraging budding fashion designers to show the UK what they’re made of.
Wool4School is open to all school students aged between 16 – 18 and in a school sixth form or College of Further Education. The Wool4School competition invites students to design a multi-functional outfit which truly highlights innovation and your creativity as a designer, using a minimum 80% Merino wool. The outfit must contain a minimum of one piece with a maximum of four pieces.
First launched in Australia in 2012, Wool4School has gone on to involve more than 85,000 students globally, not only learning the fundamentals of fashion design but also exploring the benefits and versatility of wool and the fabrics it creates.
By putting wool into the minds of the UK’s future fashion designers, Wool4School encourages students to think innovatively and creatively.
Amy Jordan designed a circus-inspired costume dress that transforms into a puppet theatre and utilised wool’s fire resistant qualities in the 100% Merino wool twill skirt.
Well done Amy, we are very proud of you!
