‘Wool Modern’ exhibition

Wool Modern Exhibition

I hate to admit it, but the weather is starting to turn a little chilly in Sydney, which seems perfect timing, given the impending arrival of the ‘Wool Modern’ global travelling exhibition, touching down in Sydney (before heading to Shanghai and New York )  for one week from 24 April.

“The exhibition is a celebration of modern, innovative and avant-garde use of wool throughout creative industries in the 21st century”.

Some of Australia’s well known designers will be involved, including Collette Dinnigan, Josh Goot, Romance Was Born, ELLERY, Jenny Kee and Akira Isagowa, as well as three of our most respected interiors designers, Sarah King, Emma Elizabeth and Henry Wilson.  Our Australian talent sits alongside a huge line-up of international designers, the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith, Lanvin and Galliano.  Now that’s good company.

Here’s a sneak preview of some of the exhibits:

The exhibition forms part of the global initiative ‘Campaign for Wool’, of which HRH Prince Charles is the Patron.  The campaign seeks to educate regarding the environmental benefits of wool, and encourages its use by manufacturers, retailers and designers.

So, why not head down and check it out for yourself?  Entry is free.  Oh, and you can always pop into Cafe Sopra Walsh Bay or Ventuno for lunch whilst you’re down there and make a day of it.  This could be a great Anzac Day option.
