Finalist - Global Wool4School Competition
Our Year 10 Design and Technology students recently entered the prestigious Wool4School competition.
Wool4School is an annual student design competition encouraging young designers to showcase their talent. The competition is open to secondary school students in Australia, Hong Kong, United Kingdom and Italy. The design brief this year was to design an outfit which was versatile, protective, dynamic and functional in order to aid a commute as you travel. Wool should have been the main fibre, making up at least 70% of the outfit, comprising up to 4 pieces.
One of our many school entries was from Hanan Kara. Hanan's design was selected to be part of the Top 10 entries out of some 100,000 entries worldwide. She designed a garment to wear whilst scooting to work (please see below) and she was invited to attend a special webinar led by a panel of industry experts where the winners would be unveiled. Hanan narrowly missed being placed in the top 3 but nevertheless, her shortlisting was a fantasist achievement in itself given that there were over 100,000 competition entries.
