Alexa Chung Joins the Woolmark Panel

-------

Marc Jacobs - Front Row - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014Just days before the International Woolmark Prize finals take place on February 21 in Milan, we can exclusively announce that Alexa Chung will join the esteemed panel of judges. A fixture on the fashion show circuit, Chung will deliberate with some of the industry’s top experts—including Franca Sozzani, Frida Giannini, and our very own Tim Blanks—to decide which of the five finalists will walk away with the AU $100,000 purse. “Alexa will provide valuable perspective on the finalists collections with her background as model, fashion commentator, and writer,” offered Woolmark CEO Stuart McCullough. “Her unique viewpoint will complete our panel of industry experts.” Model, writer, high-power judge…check, check, check. It seems Chung’s résumé just keeps getting longer. Although we can’t help but wonder if she’s quaking in her boots a little—not every It girl is tasked with holding her own in such impressive company.
