9. WORLD WOOD RECORD CHALLENGE — $ 28 000
For average citizens, the question may arise: «What is the World Wood Record Challenge?» This is a design competition, or rather a struggle for sponsorship.
The founders of this case were fashion designers of Loro Piana cashmere clothing of the Luigi family and Sergio Loro Piana herself.
Every year they invite young fashion designers to find a unique talent. After choosing the best, its design becomes the basis for 50 models of clothing under the brand name Loro Piana.
In 2012, fashion designer from Australia Suzanne Triplett got the first place. Costumes created by her sketches were sold for no less than $ 28,000.
In addition, one more achievement is to be noted, Suzanne is engaged in the production of wool with a pile diameter of 11.1 microns.
