15 MERINO 200 BEYOND THE BALE 1970 Australia had a record 180 million sheep. 1980 The processing of Australian wool was experiencing powerful changes in geography. Eastern Europe became important as a processor of wool. Eventually China was to dominate the world's processing of wool. 1988 Jean Muir and Bruce Oldfield took their bows at the Sydney Opera House on 31 January. The designers received thunderous applause for their wool collections, presented as part of the Bicentennial Wool Collection. 1984 The Australian Olympic Games team uniforms were designed by Prue Acton in wattle-yellow wool, emblazoned with koalas, emus and wombats. The team carried wattle-yellow wool coats, in the style of Driza-Bones®, and brandished Akubra hats. Australia was declared by judges the "best dressed team". 1973 The Australian Wool Corporation was established as a single marketing-oriented body to facilitate research, promotion and marketing operations.
