Beyond the Bale : Dec 08 - Jan 09
Fashion Beyond the Bale 23 Princess inspires designer’s new collection The latest collection from Australian designer and wool ambassador Jayson Brunsdon pays tribute to HRH Crown Princess Mary of Denmark W hile most Australians are preparing their wardrobes for the hot summer ahead, the fashion industry is already looking to next autumn and beyond. Chief among them is Jayson Brunsdon, who recently announced details of his new autumn/winter 2009 daywear range ‘BlACK’, to be released in stores in February 2009. The collection is designed for women who want clothes they can wear to work as well as in the evening. “I had such huge demand from customers wanting clothes that take them to work and on to dinner – clothes that didn’t scream ‘cocktail’, but had a more discreet chic to them,” Jayson says. “BlACK was created to give women a chance to own everyday pieces which are suitable for work and a quick drink or dinner afterwards.” The collection comprises day dresses, tops, skirts and pants and will be available in participating Myer stores. retail prices for tops range from $150, skirts from $195, and dresses from $250 to $350. A highlight of the range is the ‘Princess dress’, made from a lightweight, innovative Australian Merino wool fabric called ‘Tasmanian elegance’. The Tasmanian Merino wool used in the fabric was sourced from roberts Wool link, The Merino Company’s (TMC) Tasmanian wool pool. The luxurious superfine 16-micron jersey fabric is lustrous, elegant and soft. Jayson drew inspiration for the dress from Denmark’s Crown Princess Mary and hopes she will include some of the new pieces from the collection in her wardrobe. “Princess Mary is a true inspiration and we love seeing her in our dresses. Being Australian and an iconic figure she inspires me with her choice in fashion,” he says. “Now we are using a fabric sourced from woolgrowers in her birthplace.” Crown Princess Mary has been a regular Jayson Brunsdon client since discovering the designer in 2004. AWI helped Jayson Brunsdon source the new trans-seasonal fabric, which was created by levana Textiles, TMC’s fabric manufacturer in New Zealand. The collection focuses on interesting new woollen fabrications, textures, sculptural shapes and sophisticated colours that draw on the signature of Jayson’s evening wear.
