About Woolmark Performance Challenge
The Woolmark Performance Challenge is highly regarded for its influence in broadening the capabilities of the students by causing them to explore apparel innovations that respond to the greatest performance demands for the modern athlete whilst increasing fashion-forward wearability. Of course, these fabric technologies must have a reduced environmental impact and must be multi-activity friendly.
From over 400 entries worldwide, some being the University of Technology Sydney (Australia), Wuhan textile University (China), Atelier Chardon Savard (France& Germany), HSE Art and design school (Russia), University of Westminster (United Kingdom), Colorado State University (US)
