You be the judge

For The RS/WS Wool Challenge, we asked participants to select a wool fabric with a different, interesting reverse side, and create a garment or ensemble featuring this reverse side in some distinctive way. The wool could be paired with another fabric but had to make up at least 75 percent of the garment. We also asked them to incorporate into the design a lively closure.

Below you'll find the garments of the award winners and several finalists. Click on any image to enlarge the photo and find out details about the garment.
