SCD finalists of international Wool4School Competition 2019
For the second year running, we are thrilled to announce that two of our Year 12 Fashion and Textiles students have been placed as finalists within the Wool4School Design Competition. Nell Heys and Molly Binns were both selected by the judges for their innovative designs and visual presentations. The judges commented on the outstanding quality of work displayed by the school and the originality of the ideas presented by students.
Nell's multifunctional garment was inspired by her interest in 90s fashion, a multipurpose outfit to be worn at a festival or party. Molly focused on creating a multifunctional garment which would assist with any outdoor activity, designing a coat which can be transformed into a sleeping bag.
Wool4School is an annual student design competition encouraging budding fashion designers to show the UK what they’re made of. The competition invites students to design a multi-functional outfit which truly highlights innovation and creativity as a designer, using a minimum 80% Merino Wool. The outfit must contain a minimum of four pieces. The students are judged on their innovative and creative design, fashion illustration, reference to wool and overall visual presentation.
First launched in Australia in 2012, Wool4School has gone on to involve more than 85,000 students globally, not only learning the fundamentals of fashion design but also exploring the benefits and versatility of wool and the fabrics it creates.
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate both girls on their achievement.
