Recently I attended an awards event held at the Manzil hotel, Downtown Dubai, United Arab Emirates to announce the winners of 2015/16 International Woolmark Prize India, Pakistan and the Middle East regional final.
SUKETDHIR and Taller Marmo were announced as the menswear and womenswear winners, respectively.
The winners were selected by a judging panel comprising Nez Gebreel, CEO, Dubai Design & Fashion Council; Osman Yousefzada, Designer; Bridget Cosgrave, Fashion and Buying Director, Boutique 1; Louise Nichol, Editor-in-Chief of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia; Melissa Grace, The Woolmark Company; Che Kurrien, Editor, GQ India and Alison Tay, Editor-in-Chief, Grazia Middle East, selected SUKETDHIR as the menswear winner and Taller Marmo as the winner for the womenswear category.
SUKETDHIR impressed the judges with his unique merino fabric developments and hand woven techniques which he presented passionately; representing the region brilliantly while UAE based Taller Marmo showed a truly exciting collection with a very international perspective.
I will leave with these photos some photos from the event taken by the amazing photographer EY. Photography!
Hope you get some inspiration for next season’s fashion 🙂
Talk to you later 😀
