Jean-Paul Lespagnard nominated for the Woolmark Award

The Woolmark company unveiled the names of the nineteen finalists in the run for the award and the 150,000 Australian dollars prize.

Two Belgian designers are on the list: the now famous Jean-Paul Lespagnard for women’s fashion and Cédric Jacquemyn for men’s fashion. Nonetheless, the road to get to the final prize is still long as there are eliminatory “semi-finals” and later on the finals.

On top of the money, the visibility and the marketing support the winner will see its collection distributed by Harvey Nichols in the UK, Joyce in China, 10 Corso Como in Italy, Colette in France and David Jones in Australia.
