Texprint is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to nurturing the best British-trained graduates in textile design. Each year it selects and mentors 24 new designers, guiding them into creative careers in fashion and interiors through the sponsorship of leading names in the industry such as Marks & Spencer, Pantone and Woolmark.

The programme launches with:

Texprint London at The Triangle Building, Chelsea College of Art and Design, London. Open to general view: Thursday 12 July 10.30am-6pm and Friday 13 July 9am-5pm. Texprint London presents a gallery-style display focusing on key pieces from each of the 24 new talents. Their full collections will be available to view on request.

Special events

Private view: Wednesday July 11, 2012, 6pm for 6.30pm presentation until 8pm.

Prior to the Private View, the 24 new designers will be judged for special awards for Body, Space, Pattern and Colour by a panel of creative luminaries:

Caroline Burstein – creative director at Browns Fashion and founder of Molton Brown

Neisha Crosland – renowned designer with eponymous interiors and accessories brands

Marios Schwab – conceptual luxury womenswear designer

Damian Shaw – merchandising director from luxury brand McQ at Alexander McQueen and

Paul Stamper – senior designer, design perspectives, Renault Design at Renault.

The prizes will be given for any type of fabric whether created by print, weave, knit or mixed media. And the four prize winners will each receive £1,000, sponsored by Pantone X-Rite, Liberty Art Fabrics and The Clothworkers’ Foundation.

A further designer will be chosen to receive the Lululemon Texprint Award. The new award is sponsored by the activewear company Lululemon Athletica and will be chosen by executive vice president and chief product officer Sheree Waterson, with a prize of £1,000 and a three-month paid internship at Lululemon headquarters in Vancouver, Canada.  

VIP 40th   anniversary breakfast: July 12, 2012, 8.30am-10.30am.  In its 40 years, the

Texprint programme – which is funded by industry and charitable institutions – has helped close to 1,000 new designers launch their careers.  Texprint’s  alumni  have  gone  on  to establish their own brands, such as fashion designer Alice Temperley and scarf designer Emma J Shipley; set up design studios such as Kirsty McDougall of Dashing Tweeds and knitwear designer Sophie Steller; or have joined the creative departments of international design houses and major retailers, including Givenchy, Tom Ford, Habitat and Marks & Spencer.

The VIP breakfast is an invitation-only event which will enable Texprint’s management team to introduce the new designers and the work of the organisation to industry decision makers and selected press in the company of Texprint’s ambassadors and key supporters.
