Beyond the Bale : March 2015
20 OFF FARM With five decades to pick from and countless style icons from the past 50 years, last year’s entrants in AWI’s Wool4School TM competition were almost spoilt for choice. But for Year 10 winner Clancy Davies- Etheridge, it was the swinging ’60s which stood out the most. The Kinross Wolaroi School student took out the national prize with her Twiggy-inspired Mod-style design, and not only saw leading Australian designer Jonathan Ward turn her sketch into a real outfit, but she also found herself smiling in front of the camera in her very own Girlfriend magazine photo shoot, which is in the February edition. “It’s so amazing to see my garment made and come to life,” Clancy said on set during her photo shoot with model Olivia Ludington and Jonathan Ward. “The ’60s had such an elegant style but it was a changing era, more individual. Twiggy was a leading icon for that change.” The Wool4School TM competition further reinforces AWI’s commitment to fostering education and continues to help educate the next generation about the unique and natural benefits of Australian wool. “I knew a bit about Merino wool before I entered the competition, but I learnt a lot about the fashion side of wool – what happens after it leave the farms and how innovations can change it so much to be so diverse,” said Clancy. Clancy’s designs were well thought out, with a great sense of proportion, according to Jonathan Ward. With a great idea and balance of colour, Twiggy was the perfect muse for Clancy who was able to design a ’60s-inspired outfit but give it a modern day twist. This year’s Wool4SchoolTM theme is Live Life, Love Wool and sets the task to design the perfect winter outfit suitable for a student exchange to New York City, Tokyo, Paris, Moscow or New Delhi. “Be creative,” says Jonathan Ward. “And don’t be afraid to be creative. Understand the competition; understand everything about wool and the diversity of what you can do with it.” A MODISH Last year’s Year 10 winner of AWI’s Wool4SchoolTM competition Clancy Davies-Etheridge (left) designed a 100% Merino wool outfit inspired by Twiggy and mod culture from the 1960s, which was brought to life by Jonathan Ward (right).
