The International Woolmark Prize has revealed its U.S. nominees for 2015-2016. The women’s wear finalists are Chris Gelinas, Kaelen, Nellie Partow, Novis and Tanya Taylor. The men’s wear finalists are Cadet, David Hart, Lucio Castro, Siki Im and Thaddeus O’Neil.
The U.S. winners will be selected July 21 in New York, based on sketches of a six-piece merino wool capsule collection, with one garment actually produced. They’ll then compete against finalists in Shanghai, Sydney, Antwerp, Dubai and the British Isles for
the coveted award.
