CLEAR WINNER: The Australian Wool Fashion Awards Supreme Award winner Laurel Judd, second from right, awards managing director Liz Foster and models Stephanie Murat and Annaliese O’Sullivan wearing the winning creations.
FOR the first time an international entrant has taken out the top prize of the Australian Wool Fashion Awards.
New Zealand’s Laurel Judd was announced the winner of the Supreme Award at Saturday night’s awards.
It was not one but two of her designs that earned her the accolade, with the judges agonising over their decision until they were informed the creations came from the same designer.
Her designs included a playful knitted outfit and a felted racewear outfit, complete with hat.
The Australian Wool Fashion Awards managing director Liz Foster said Ms Judd had paid attention to detail with the outfits and each were “beautifully done”.
Ms Judd took home a diamond jewellery set from Tenterfield’s Margot Edwina Rees Antiques for her efforts.
Mrs Foster said the awards night was “the most wonderful night”, with about 200 guests attending.
There were 100 entrants, which was a little less than we’ve had before, but the quality was far superior to anything we’ve had before,” Mrs Foster said.
She said the judges – So You Think You Can Dance America judge Bonnie Lythgoe, former Ready Steady Cook host and current Celebrity Apprentice contestant Peter Everett, TV personality Faye De Lanty, and fashion and lifestyle blogger Adrian Erdedi – were impressed by the professionalism of the event and the designs.
