Student wins M&S knitwear design competition

Natalie Mason, a student from the School of Design, has won a competition which will see her design of a woollen sweater on sale in Marks and Spencers stores as part of their ‘Limited’ collection.


‘Wool School’ is the name of the initiative which saw fashion, textiles and design students from across the country competing to design wool sweaters to be sold in top UK retail stores, including Topshop, Pringle, and John Lewis, as well as M&S.

To support the Wool School, 5% of the sales from this jumper will be donated to a special education fund for universities taking part in The Campaign for Wool. The campaign takes place every autumn around the world and celebrates the best of wool across fashion, interiors and artisan communities.
