HONG KONG 2018/19 SEMI-FINAL LONDON 2018/19 SEMI-FINAL NEW YORK 2018/19 SEMI-FINAL AUSTRALIAN LABEL ALBUS LUMEN WINS IN NEW YORK Australian fashion designer Marina Afonina of label ALBUS LUMEN has been selected to compete in the 2018/19 International Woolmark Prize global final in London next year. At an event in New York, ALBUS LUMEN’s 80 per cent Merino wool collection, titled Pure Discovery, impressed an expert panel of judges, with the Australian label joining 11 other brands from across the globe. ALBUS LUMEN used Australian Merino wool in a way that challenged common misconceptions about the fibre while emphasising the label’s easy, free spirit. The all-white capsule collection highlights the ethereal lightness of Merino wool and focuses on the textural possibilities of the fabrics. ALBUS LUMEN’s use of small-scale quilting and the textural effects created by mixing Australian Merino wool with linen and silk blends adds subtle yet striking contrasts to the all-white palette, while shell and baroque pearl surface detailing – both ALBUS LUMEN signatures – enhance the lightness and the natural beauty of Australian Merino wool. “It is extremely exciting to be taking ALBUS LUMEN to the next level using Merino wool and using new technologies,” said designer Marina Afonina.
