The International Woolmark Prize has announced the line up of judges for this year’s prize, with Dior’s Kim Jones and artist Takashi Murakami both set to feature on the panel. Speaking about his inclusion on the panel, Jones described the prize as “an institution for the fashion industry, and I am thrilled to participate. The competition shines a light on diversity and innovation and I’m very happy to be a part of that.”

Alongside Jones and Murakami, the 2020 judging panel will also include Business of Fashion‘s Tim Blanks, Hamish Bowles of Vogue, educator and advocate Sinead Burke, Edward Enninful OBE from British Vogue, Browns and Farfetch’s Holli Rogers, model Anja Rubik and Shaway Yeh.

As well as announcing the judging panel, Woolmark has also announced plans for the inaugural Karl Lagerfeld Award for Innovation to be presented to one finalist. Celebrating Lagerfeld’s legacy — which included winning the first ever Woolmark Prize in 1953 — the prize will be awarded to a designer “who showcases outstanding creativity and innovation.”
