David Laport announced winner of International Woolmark Prize Europe final 2017/18

Inspired by David Hockney’s painting ‘A Bigger Splash’, David Laport’s fascination with colour was translated into his winning look using a 100% Merino wool crepe from Südwolle. Combining couture like techniques with individual threads pulled out by hand and attached in double layers, with ready-to-wear sensibilities, Laport created a fresh and modern silhouette with Edward Buchanan, Creative Director, SANSOVINO6 adding that: “David beautifully used innovation and creativity to develop a realistic and chic concept, the use of wool with delicate detailing was superb and refreshing from first site. I’m constantly asking myself what happened to the joy in fashion and here arrives David Laport to answer my question.”
