Wool4School is an annual student design competition that encourages budding fashion designers to show the nation what they’re made of.
Open to all Australian school students from Years 7 to 12. Wool4School invites students to design an outfit using at least 80% wool. The outfit can contain 1 to 4 pieces and must show the student’s creative and innovative talent.
First launched in 2012, Wool4School receives more than 85,000 student entries nationwide. Entrants learn the fundamentals of fashion design and explore 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 in Hong Kong 2015, the United Kingdom 2017 and Italy 2018.
