The Australian-based international wool textile organization The Woolmark Company has joined hands with several international luxury fashion destinations to sell the next year’s Woolmark Prize winning collections.

Slated to be available for purchase from sometime in August, 2015, the ranges will be stocked at retailers like Matchesfashion.com, Saks Fifth Avenue, Colette, David Jones and Harvey Nichols.

The Woolmark Prize ceremony, which recognizes menswear design excellence using Australia’s preeminent natural fiber, is scheduled to be held on January 9, 2015 in London. The contest will be judged by the likes of English fashion designer Paul Smith, editor-in-chief, GQ UK Dylan Jones, Tim Blanks (editor at Large, Style.com) and designer Nick Wooster.

The womenswear award, which is due to be announced on March 17, 2015 in Beijing, will be judged by the English fashion designer Victoria Beckham along with Angelica Cheung (editor-at-Large), Franca Sozzani (editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia) and British fashion writer, journalist and academic Colin McDowell.

Started in 1953, the International Woolmark Prize crosses borders and cultures and has been revived for a new generation of emerging talents that continue to look at new ways to take wool into the future.

The Woolmark Company is the global authority on Merino fibres. The organization engages itself into the research and development of better textiles. The company’s iconic Woolmark symbol, which was born in 1964, withstands as a reassuring proof of extraordinary versatility and innate luxury of Merino wool for several decades. (PB)
