It was a double win for Melbourne-based label STRATEAS.CARLUCCI, with the design duo winning the 2014/15 International Woolmark Prize Australia regional final for both the menswear and womenswear categories.
 
A judging panel comprising Roland Mouret, Fashion Designer; Deborah Foreman, David Jones General Manager for Menswear; Sophie Clarke, David Jones General Manager for Womenswear; Edwina McCann, Vogue Australia Editor-in-Chief; and Kellie Hush, Harper's BAZAAR Australia Editor-in-Chief selected Peter Strateas and Mario-Luca Carlucci of STRATEAS.CARLUCCI, at an awards event held at The Stables, Royal Randwick Racecourse in Sydney.
 
"It was a pleasure to be a part of the International Woolmark Prize," explained Roland Mouret at the awards presentation.
 
"The experience allowed me to have a personal opinion regarding the future of Australian design and I am a big believer that with the support of The Woolmark Company they will succeed."
 
Inspired by Indigenous artist Emily Kngwarreye, STRATEAS.CARLUCCI was praised for their exquisite tailoring of woven Merino wool. Supplied by Woolmark licensee Nikke, the woven fabric had a water repellent finish and the complementary detailing between their menswear and womenswear outfits allowed the duo to showcase their brand across the two categories.
 
"We're absolutely thrilled, overwhelmed and grateful for this amazing opportunity," explained Mario-Luca Carlucci shortly after the announcement.
 
"Having Roland Mouret as part of the judging panel was amazing and his honesty struck a chord with both Peter and myself. The constructive criticism and feedback from someone from that calibre - and from all of the judges - is an amazing experience.
 
"We drew inspiration from the commentary surrounding the work of artist Emily Kngwarreye which allowed us to showcase a contemporary versus traditional aspect to our work."
