The Stroud Textiles Trust have put a call out for women's or menswear designs by Stroud Valleys & Gloucestershire based fashion designers working with WOOL!

As part of the  Cathedral of Cloth: The Life and Times of Ebley Mill exhibition running from Sat 3rd Feb until Sun 4th March 2018 at the Museum in the Park, STT would like to present contemporary fashion garments by local designers at the opening in a 'understated Flash Mob' event. 

The garments do not need to be made entirely from wool but there should be significant use of this material in the outfit(s). The idea behind the live presentation on Sunday 4th February is to illustrate how wool continues to feature in the work of local designers and artisans within Gloucestershire and the Stroud Valleys.

Low res images of your designs or garments and a short blurb about yourself and concept should be sent to patricia.brien16@bathspa.ac.uk no later than 28th December 2017 for the selection process. If selected, garments will need to be ready by January 15th 2018.
