Walsh Bay: April 24th, 2012
Wool Modern is a component of a much larger global initiative called 'Campaign for Wool' that is attempting to highlight the benefits of using real wool to retailers, designers and manufacturers. 'Campaign for Wool' is not some overnight trend, the campaigns Patron, HRH The Prince of Wales, has been supporting this endeavour since its launch five years ago, publicly demonstrating his support of the wool industry.
Wool Modern has brought together the "who's who" of the fashion and interior design industry both national and abroad. With designers such as Galliano, Vivienne Westwood, Collette Dinnigan, Paul Smith, Christian Lacroix, Henry Wilson & Sarah King taking part was there ever any doubt of its success.
With the exhibition finding its home in the ideally located Pier 2/3 in Walsh Bay, the visual impact of the event was stunning. Well curated by London- based Charlotte Lurot, Director of the Bacchus Studio, the expansive interior and selective lighting created an intimate atmosphere in such a large space.
Personal favourites included the gorgeous black beaded dress by Collette Dinnigan, the Vivienne Westwood coat & the eye catching installation piece by Angela Wright.
