The International Woolmark Prize has announced the seven finalists for its 2022 prize and the accompanying Karl Lagerfeld Award for Innovation. All of the finalists will present a Fall/Winter 2022 collection in Merino Wool, with a particular focus on transparency in their supply chain. The winners will be selected by an expert panel, and announced in April 2022.

This year’s finalists include London-based designers Ahluwalia and Saul Nash, as well as France’s EGONLAB and New York-based Peter Do. The final three names on the list are Jordan Dalah, MMUSOMAXWELL and Rui. All of the finalists will receive a $60,000 AUD (approximately $43,000 USD) grant to create their collection, with the winner taking home a $200,000 AUD (approximately $144,000 USD) investment. The Karl Lagerfeld Award for Innovation winner will receive $100,000 AUD (approximately $72,000 USD).
