Wool4School is an annual student design competition encouraging budding fashion designers to show the nation what they’re made of.
Open to all UK school students aged from 14 to 19 years, the Wool4School competition invites students to design an outfit using a minimum of 80% wool. The outfit must contain a minimum of one item with a maximum of four items and show the students creative and innovative side.
First launched in 2012, Wool4School has gone on to involve more than 95,000 students worldwide, 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 our 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, the UK in 2017 and Italy in 2018.
