Knockando Woolmill is proud to introduce their inaugural New Woven Textile Designer Award, seeking emerging talent from across the United Kingdom.
The aim of the competition is to uncover the best of new textile design talent, inviting current students and recent graduates to submit innovative, contemporary designs that push boundaries.
The competition is open for entries from 30th August and closes at midnight on 30th September. 10 finalists will be chosen by a judging panel consisting of the team at the Mill, Anna Freemantle, director of the Edinburgh International Fashion Festival, and a guest judge (to be announced closer to the closing date of submission).
The winning design will be announced by a top, internationally recognised, judging panel as part of this year’s Edinburgh International Fashion Festival (1st week November 2017).
The winning design will then be produced commercially and sold with custom labelling featuring the designer’s name.
