Leading fashion designer Alexander Wang will present his collection as part of The Woolmark Company's Merino Wool global fibre advocacy campaign - 'No Finer Feeling'. Wang will include Merino wool pieces in his namesake brand's Fall/Winter 2013 collection and champion the benefits of Merino wool as a luxury fibre.

“I have used Merino wool since I first started designing so collaborating with Woolmark was a natural fit for me,” said Alexander Wang. “Wool has strong environmental credentials, and it feels modern, and relevant.”

For the two season partnership, select pieces of Wang’s Fall/Winter 2013 and Fall/Winter 2014 collections will include Merino wool and carry the Woolmark logo, which guarantees the fibre content and performance of the garment.

Pascal Dangin, founder of Box Studios, is Creative Director of this feature of the Merino Wool. No Finer Feeling campaign, and the portrait of Wang will appear in the world’s leading fashion magazines as well as in digital and social media. Leibovitz has captured the essence of the designer and the beauty of his collaboration with The Woolmark Company.

The advertisements are part of a bigger branding campaign to position Merino wool as the fiber of choice for the world’s leading designers and brands.

“We are thrilled to be collaborating with celebrated designer Alexander Wang whose modern sensibility and innovative designs exhibit the beauty of Merino wool,” says Stuart McCullough, CEO of Australian Wool Innovation, parent company of The Woolmark Company. “His ability to think differently embodies our ethos of exploring the boundless potential and versatility of wool in fashion designers’ creations.”

No Finer Feeling represents a collaboration between The Woolmark Company and the world’s premium apparel brands. The global campaign addresses a new, younger generation of discerning shoppers. It establishes Merino as the fibre of choice for fine, contemporary fashion, and creates an expectation of the luxurious tactile experience of wearing Merino, sourced in Australia from the world-famous Merino sheep breed.
