Marcia Patmos, the US fashion talent behind M. Patmos brand, has scooped up this year’s International Woolmark Prize (IWP) in womenswear category.

The winner was selected from a group of total 60 contestants representing 21 countries for her exceptional creations made using Australia’s most exclusive natural fibre Merino.

Speaking on her win, the designer said in a press statement, “Thank you to The Woolmark Company for creating this great platform to support emerging designers. I am looking forward to seeing what happens as a result of this new opportunity.”

Talking about the designer and her line, Victoria Beckham, one of the judges of the competition said, “I felt that Patmos embodied best what the IWP stands for. The collection was well executed and the concept interesting.”

Another jury member, the British fashion writer, journalist and academic Colin McDowell, said, “I thought that it was a very sophisticated collection which used Merino wool to make clothes that were elegant but also young in spirit.”

M. Patmos’ collection will be available globally at partner retailers, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Harvey Nichols, 10 Corso Como, JOYCE, Isetan Mitsukoshi, David Jones and mytheresa.com, from August, 2015.

Commenting on The Woolmark Company’s novel initiative to support young talents, Beckham adds, “The International Woolmark Prize gives emerging talent from wherever they are an incredible opportunity.” (PB)
