winning collection, which is available from this month at the Sydney flagship store of David Jones. For Wijnants, it can be said his International Woolmark Prize journey has come full circle as this year he found himself sitting on the judging panel for the Asia regional final. Back on home soil, eight of Australia’s most talented emerging designers faced an elite judging panel at the picturesque Sydney Theatre Company, Walsh Bay. Sydney-based designer Christopher Esber and his eponymous label was up against Alistair Trung, DRESS UP, Haryono Setiadi, KAHLO, Michael Lo Sordo, Lui Hon and STRATAEUS.CARLUCCI, but Esber took the honours by utilising innovative wool product developments in the form of deconstructed suiting. "It is such an honour to win the Woolmark prize as it is the highest recognition my brand has received to date," Esber said. "Thank you to Australian Wool Innovation and Woolmark for my nomination and inclusion in this prestigious international award. I am so excited to represent Australia in Milan in February 2014." The International Woolmark Prize reflects AWI’s ongoing commitment to educating the next generation of fashion industry leaders about the extraordinary potential of wool. And according to AWI Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer, Rob Langtry, it provides a platform to forge ongoing partnerships with these future industry leaders. “We congratulate Christopher Esber on winning the Australian regional prize,” Mr Langtry said. “With the exciting expansion of the prize across Asia and the Middle East, the International Woolmark Prize is a truly global celebration of emerging talent and an increasingly important opportunity to see commercial success on a global scale each year. “We look forward to supporting all the finalists in their journey toward the final event in Milan in February 2014. We wish all the designers participating in the prize this year the best and we hope the inherent properties of wool will stimulate the designers’ creative thinking.” More information: www.woolmarkprize.com www.woolmark.com/woolmark-prize 5 September 2013 BEYOND THE BALE OFF-FARM Rahul Mishra won the India and Middle East regional final.
