Public School and M.Patmos were yesterday announced the menswear and womenswear winners, respectively, of the 2014/15 International Woolmark Prize USA regional final, at an event at Milk Studios in New York.

A judging panel comprising Alexander Wang, Creative Director, Alexander Wang, Inc. and Balenciaga; Ariel Foxman, Editor-in-Chief, InStyle; Colleen Sherin, Senior Fashion Director, Saks Fifth Avenue; David Granger, Editor-in-Chief, Esquire; Eric Jennings, Vice President & Fashion Director Menswear, Home, Food & Gifts, Saks Fifth Avenue; Malcolm Carfrae, Executive Vice President, Chief Communications Officer, Calvin Klein; Michelle Lee, Director of Americas for The Woolmark Company, Stefano Tonchi, Editor-in-Chief, W Magazine and Steven Kolb, CEO, CFDA selected the two winners.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of the International Woolmark Prize judging panel again and excited to see the womenswear designs, as well as the competition’s first ever menswear category,” said Alexander Wang.

“The Woolmark Company’s prestigious award enables emerging designers like PUBLIC SCHOOL and M.PATMOS a platform to push the boundaries of their creativity with Merino wool through experimentation and innovation.”

Menswear winners Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne of Public School, upon receiving the award, said: “We're so incredibly thrilled and honoured to be selected as the US representative in the first Woolmark Prize for menswear. Working with wool and all of its natural benefits has been instrumental in developing the trans-seasonality and versatility of our own collection and it’s going to really help jumpstart our knitwear business.”

Womenswear winner Marcia Patmos of M.Patmos upon receiving the award said: “I've done a lot of work with wool, but was intrigued to explore new techniques and the ability to contrast high-tech with handcrafted was an incredible learning experience. It was such an honour to be alongside these other amazing designers, all of whom showcased such unique uses of wool.”
