Structural, Elegant, Felted Wool

Bold silhouettes, a minimal graphic palette, and sweeping architectural details were used when Dion Lee presented his collection as nominee for the International Woolmark competition which was recently held during London Fashion Week.

The details are intricate, the finish meticulous and the shapes elegant.  That's what you get when you mess with Felted Wool!  

Congratulations to the winner, Belgian Christian Wijnants who was chosen by a panel of judges including Franca & Carla Sozzani, Victoria Beckham, Donatella Versace and Diane von Furstenberg.  (Although I can't find enough information about the winning designs.. I think it was a thick, chunky knitted jumper).
