Hainsworth teams up with young designers to celebrate wool week

British textile manufacturer Hainsworth has collaborated with fashion graduates from Huddersfield University to create a womenswear collection for wool week, which runs from October 15-22.

The students used Hainsworth’s scarlet and black doeskin in their designs, a fabric which is traditionally used to make military dress and was worn by Prince William on his wedding day.

The garments will be on display at the Leeds Industrial Museum at Armley Mills as part of the permanent exhibition ‘Behind the Seams’, which is a celebration of the heritage of British skills in the fashion industry.

Suzy Shepherd, one of the founders of Leeds Fashion Works, said: “The textile industry in Yorkshire is something to be proud of and these students are using the sort of skills that need to be treasured and promoted.”
