The shortlisted contestants will showcase their creative excellence, using Australia’s preeminent natural fibre Merino, before an extraordinarily talented jury comprising English fashion designer Victoria Beckham, Angelica Cheung (editor-at-Large), Franca Sozzani (editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia) and British fashion writer, journalist and academic Colin McDowell.

Patmos (from American design talent Marcia Patmos) and the Beirut-based fashion designer Rayya Morcos’ Bird on a Wire brand.

The Australia-based Strateas.Carlucci label’s designers ‘Mario Luca Carlucci’ and ‘Peter Strateas’ have been selected for both menswear and womenswear categories. “We’re absolutely thrilled, overwhelmed and grateful for this amazing opportunity,” said Carlucci about the brand’s selection for the prestigious awards, mentioned woolmarkprize.com.
