Another week, another exciting event to report on - this time involving a competition winner, a trip to Italy and some exclusive printed silk designs.
Recently, Joel of Joel & Son Fabrics has begun lecturing at a fashion college, providing over 60 years expertise in the industry to the fashion designers of the future. He held a competition for the students of Shenkar College to create the most creative fabric design that was both modern and commercially viable. The winner of the top prize would not only have their design printed and then sold exclusively here at Joel & Son Fabrics, but would also have the chance to fly to Italy with Joel and witness the printing process from start to finish at a top fabric mill, where many of our own fabrics are printed.
So after much deliberation, the competition winner, Dan, was chosen and he set off to Italy on a two day educational journey with Joel himself.
