Technology is reshaping almost every industry, including fashion. This year we invite students to design a garment or outfit that embraces the use of wearable technology to enhance garment performance or function. Examples include wool footwear that tracks your run or a credit card chip in a jacket for ease of purchase.
With some innovative thinking, and an understanding of the importance of technology in today's market, the possibilities are endless.
The garment or outfit must be made from a minimum 80% wool and consist of one item or up to a maximum of four items.
