Merino on Australian catwalks

May '07
Renowned Australian designers Jayson Brunsdon and Tina Kalivas in collaboration with Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) have taken Australian Merino wool to the catwalk during Rosemont Australia Fashion Week.

Jayson Brunsdon once again showed the true versatility of Australian Merino wool with his Spring Summer 08 collection, which is in stores in January.

“I feel very proud to work with Australian Merino wool. It is an exciting fibre and surprising to use tropical weight wool with a wet look finish for a resort collection. The Australian Merino wool which I have previously utilised has been very well received and many wool garments have been ordered by customers across the globe,” said Jayson Brunsdon.

Brunsdon's Spring Summer 08 resort collection features twenty four individual looks within the resort wear collection, one of Brunsdon's smallest yet; with sophisticated, shapely, feminine pieces.

Colours featured include mango, reef blues, palm greens, and orchid pinks to highlight the tropical paradise escape.

Tina Kalivas on the other hand stormed the catwalks with her unique Spring Summer 08 collection. The theme of the entire collection is strong tailoring, structure, and almost costume design elements.

“Australian Merino wool was the ultimate option for me to utilise this season – it is fitting for the tailoring and drape I require for my garments and provides wearers with a luxuriously soft next to skin feeling,” saidTina Kalivas.

Seventy percent of the Tina Kalivas Spring Summer 08 collection is made using quality Australian Merino wool or wool blend fabrics. This is a statement for the versatile, luxury, and durable qualities of the fibre.
