MILAN — Ballantyne is out to promote cashmere among young fashion students with a new contest titled "Design Ballantyne Knitwear."
The competition involves final-year students from Polimoda Institute in Florence, London's Central Saint Martins and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Antwerp, Belgium. Each institution will select five students who can express their creativity via a men's or women's collection connected to such Ballantyne staples as the extensive use of color, handmade workmanship and the ubiquitous argyle pattern.
