The prizes will be given for any type of fabric whether created by print, weave, knit or mixed media. And the four prize winners will each receive £1,000, sponsored by Pantone X-Rite, Liberty Art Fabrics and The Clothworkers’ Foundation.
A further designer will be chosen to receive the Lululemon Texprint Award. The new award is sponsored by the activewear company Lululemon Athletica and will be chosen by executive vice president and chief product officer Sheree Waterson, with a prize of £1,000 and a three-month paid internship at Lululemon headquarters in Vancouver, Canada.
VIP 40th anniversary breakfast: July 12, 2012, 8.30am-10.30am. In its 40 years, the
Texprint programme – which is funded by industry and charitable institutions – has helped close to 1,000 new designers launch their careers. Texprint’s alumni have gone on to establish their own brands, such as fashion designer Alice Temperley and scarf designer Emma J Shipley; set up design studios such as Kirsty McDougall of Dashing Tweeds and knitwear designer Sophie Steller; or have joined the creative departments of international design houses and major retailers, including Givenchy, Tom Ford, Habitat and Marks & Spencer.
The VIP breakfast is an invitation-only event which will enable Texprint’s management team to introduce the new designers and the work of the organisation to industry decision makers and selected press in the company of Texprint’s ambassadors and key supporters.
