CFE ALUMNI WINS WOOLMARK PRIZE IN MENSWEAR
We would like to congratulate CFE Pioneer alumni COTTWEILER who last night was announced as the winner of the 2016/17 International Woolmark prize for Menswear at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris representing the British Isles region.
The duo will now receive AU$100,000 to support the development of their business, ongoing industry mentor support, Woolmark certification for their winning collection and the opportunity to be stocked in department stores and boutiques worldwide. The duo were supported on the 6-month Pioneer programme in 2016.
“Winning the International Woolmark Prize gives us the opportunity to share what we do with a much bigger, global audience..the great part of this was the opportunity to work with a different material because we’re always interested in experimenting with technology and development.” – COTTWEILER
