Suket Dhir bags Woolmark Prize

“This is certainly very overwhelming, and everything that I needed right now. I’ve done what I could in India, and this is the best thing that could happen to me, for me to move in a bigger way. I think I’m ready for the world, and I also think the world is ready for me and for this kind of aesthetic. The look is easy and happy, and the world needs that right now,” Mr. Dhir said in a statement.

The award was judged by a panel that included designer Haider Ackermann, The Business of Fashion founder and editor-in-chief Imran Amed, Vogue international editor Suzy Menkes, and the Woolmark Company managing director Stuart McCullough.

“In fashion, I’m always looking for emotion, for the heartbeat, for the feeling that something excites me — it may come from an ancient skill but it seems fresh to me,” Mr. Menkes said for Mr. Dhir’s collection.

Using the traditional technique of hand-tied and dyed yarn ( Ikat ), the collection aims at tracing the mellowed and faded experiences of the past memories through the ombre pattern. Seamless moulding and heat setting of the fabric reinforces the garments. This is the second year that the International Woolmark Prize has included a menswear category, last year won by New York-based label Public School.
