Wool4School is an annual student design competition encouraging budding fashion designers to show the nation what they’re made of.
Open to all Australian school students from years 7 to 12, the Wool4School competition invites students to design an outfit using a minimum 80% Australian Merino wool. The outfit must contain a minimum of one piece with a maximum of four pieces, and show the student’s creative and innovative side.
First launched in 2012, Wool4School has involved more than 65,000 students nationwide, not only learning the fundamentals of fashion design but also exploring the benefits and versatility of wool and the fabric it creates.
By putting wool into the minds of Australia’s future fashion designers, Wool4School encourages students' innovative thinking and creative design, in keeping with The Woolmark Company’s tradition of fostering the education of the future generation.
On the back of the success of Wool4School in Australia, The Woolmark Company launched the competition into Hong Kong in 2015 and England in 2017.
