Four world-renowned decision makers and designers in the fields of fashion and design gathered at Texprint London - the must-see presentation of the best new graduate textile designers from the UK - to select the winners of four special prizes. The judging panel comprised:

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

•           Neisha Crosland - renowned designer with eponymous interiors and accessories brands and

•           Paul Stamper - senior designer, design perspectives, Renault Design at Renault and

•           Sheree Waterson - executive vice president and chief product officer of activewear company Lululemon Athletica.

The experts reviewed the work of the 24 selected textile designers - working in print, weave, knit, stitch and mixed media - who are taking part in this year’s mentoring and career development programme. They chose four special winners, each of whom will receive a £1,000 prize, courtesy of prize sponsors Pantone X-Rite, Liberty Art Fabrics and The Clothworkers’ Foundation.

Carlo Volpi from the Royal College of Art wins the Body prize - awarded to the best fashion fabric.

Caroline Burstein said it was a unanimous decision and praised the knitwear designer’s impeccable colour sense.

Tania Grace Knuckey from the Royal College of Art wins the Space prize - awarded to the best fabric for interiors. Her work incorporates materials from metal to leather and Paul Stamper was impressed with her “good mind” and ability to turn her hand to anything.

Ying Wu from the Royal College of Art wins the Pattern prize. Neisha Crosland said her scarves were exquisite: “She has taken skate and street and taken it upmarket and refined.”

Manri Kishimoto from Central St Martins wins the Colour prize. The judges coveted her printed garments and Sheree Waterson described her designs as “outrageous, mind-blowing. Her illustrations are awesome.”

Texprint’s chairman, Barbara Kennington is delighted to present all 24 carefully-selected designers to sponsors, press and key decision-makers and leading creatives in the fashion and interiors markets at Texprint London - a gallery-style display focusing on key pieces by each new talent - on July 12 and 13, 2012 at Chelsea College of Art & Design, Pimlico, London SW1P 4JU. The designers’ full collections are available to view on request.

Following Texprint London, all 24 designers will present their work at Indigo, Paris, the textile design exhibition which is part of Première Vision Pluriel, September 19-21, 2012. While at Indigo, the designers’ work will be judged for the Woolmark Texprint Award in support of Campaign for Wool - the prize that recognises design excellence in fabrics created with 60% or more Merino wool.
