Leading Fashion of Indian Designer at International Woolmark Prize 2018
The International Woolmark Prize celebrates outstanding fashion talents from around the globe who showcase the beauty and versatility of Merino wool. It is the world’s most prestigious award for rising fashion stars. More than 300 emerging fashion designers from across 46 countries applied to take part in International Woolmark Prize 2018. The most promising 42 designers, who showcased creativity, originality of design, innovation and brand recognition, have now been nominated to present their brand to a panel of experts at one of three semi-final events in July. For designer Dhruv Kapoor, it all played out like a dream for which he was waiting for so long. Just scroll our gallery and check his amazing spring collection of 2018.
The designer said,” I feel really lucky for getting a second shot at this, moreover because the entire process has changed. The regional round is now judged at a global scale and I can’t be more proud to have made it along with Miuniku. The Woolmark Company has requested for fabric swatches only, so we are going all out trying to build an eclectic blend of technology and tradition. We played it too safe last time and the product was too commercial. From all the feedback, we gathered that they are looking at the concept, and the buyers anyway tweak the collections. This time we are crossing our comfort zone—retaining our identity but exploring new avenues.”
International Woolmark Prize challenges them to achieve greatness in keeping with The Woolmark Company’s tradition of supporting design excellence. We hope all the best for all the designers.
