Vasse Felix Sponsors the 2020 International Woolmark Prize
Vasse Felix was pleased to sponsor the 2020 International Woolmark Prize as the events official wine partner for the second year in a row. The International Woolmark Prize is one of fashion's most prestigious prizes, with previous winners including Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent, giving recognition to the emerging designers of the industry. The Woolmark group is the global authority on wool and runs an ongoing program to showcase Australian wool as the world's premier natural fibre for luxury apparel.
The 2020 event took place at London Fashion Week, showcasing the work of 10 finalists. These designers compete for the International Woolmark Prize and the Karl Lagerfeld Award for Innovation. The winner of the overall Woolmark award was Richard Malone and the inaugural winner of the Karl Lagerfeld award was Bode (both designers pictured below).
It was a pleasure to be a part of this exciting event in fashion, supporting a like-minded Australian producer whose ethos of the 'importance of place' reflects our own.
