Designer Joseph Altuzarra has won the 2014 International Woolmark Prize, it was announced Tuesday. The award, which includes a prize of $100,000 toward his next collection, will officially be given to the designer behind Altuzarra during Milan Fashion Week in February. Next, he will also have the opportunity to represent the US during the final event of the international competition.
This news comes after the April announcement that Altuzarra was one of 10 American finalists — alongside the likes of Wes Gordon and Bibhu Mohapatra — up for the Woolmark Prize.
We wish Altuzarra the best of luck in the final phase of the competition.
