Designer Jason Wu gets first-hand knowledge of Merino wool
Aug '16
The Woolmark Company recently organised a visit of its brand ambassador, fashion designer Jason Wu to see the source of Merino wool, the natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre which lies at the heart of his latest collection. This visit comes two months before the designer shows his Spring/Summer 2017 collection at New York Fashion Week.

According to Woolmark, the designer was able to first-hand experience the fibre as he forayed in to the heart of the wool-growing country. Besides, Jason Wu also sat on the judging panel of the International Woolmark Prize Australia regional final.

In the collection that he will be displaying at the New York Fashion Week, Wu has created a wool-rich collection with many of the pieces gaining Woolmark certification.

“Natural, breathable, next-to-skin softness and superb handle and drape, Merino wool provided Wu with a blank canvas for his collection,” Woolmark said.

“Merino wool has always played an integral role in my designs. Yet partnering with The Woolmark Company really allowed me to further explore and develop wool for summer,” Wu too said. (AR)
