By placing more wool on the shelves of department stores and boutiques, AWI highlights Australian wool as the ultimate natural fibre and premier ingredient in luxury apparel. The Perfect Five pays homage to Yousefzada’s muses: Bianca Jagger, Taylor Swift, Lauren Bacall, Paloma Picasso and Lupito Nyong’o, with each key look celebrating the women who wore them. “They’re special basics, they’re not super fashion, so I wanted to give them a back story,” says Yousefzada of the celebrity style names.
