Woolmark announces Wool4Skool design competition winners

With a very high level of entries, congratulations are being extended to all students and teachers involved in the 2013 Wool4Skool design competition.

The Wool4Skool program is helping develop Australia’s future fashion designers. Entrants were aided by fabric samples and extensive educational resources developed in line with the Design and Technology curriculum.

The task this year was to “dress a royal” and judging was a significant task as close to 1200 designs were submitted across years 7 to 10 including outfits for the Duchess of Cambridge, the Princess of Monaco, the Queen, Princess Beatrice, and even Prince Harry. In addition, teachers also sent in entries explaining how they placed the program within their classroom.

“It was encouraging to see just how many teachers had picked up the competition and embedded it onto their classroom teaching. This was evident in the quality of entries that were submitted from a broad range of schools from across the country. The standard and variety of entries was outstanding and I hope everyone enjoyed being involved,” said content creator and judge for Wool4Skool 2013, Katrina Wheaton-Penniall.

Student winners have been chosen across each year level and there were finalists in each state. The winning year 10 design will be made into reality by leading Australian designer and judge Jonathan Ward and be featured in a photoshoot in Girlfriend magazine.

"I am very much looking forward to creating the design of the year 10 winner," said Mr Ward.

“This entry involved a strong creative statement about the qualities of wool. The student had researched the fabric and style of garment likely to be worn by the Duchess of Cambridge, formerly Kate Middleton. It ticked all the boxes,” he added.
