Beyond the Bale : June 2014
11 FAST FACTS l Internationally renowned fashion designer Roland Mouret, with support from AWI, is releasing an eight- piece Australian Merino wool collection for retail giant Myer. l The collection is featured in this month's Australian edition of Harper's BAZAAR. l Roland Mouret will be a member of the judging panel at the Australian regional final of the International Woolmark Prize, to be held in Sydney on 16 July. AWI has partnered with internationally renowned fashion designer Roland Mouret to release an eight-piece Australian Merino wool collection for Myer. The London-based French-born designer -- who introduced to the world the popular Galaxy, Titanium and Moon dresses -- will come to Australia in July to launch his Woolmark-certified collection in person at Myer's Sydney and Melbourne stores. "The collection emphasises the fact that I have always been working in wool," Mouret tells Harper's BAZAAR. "It's great that Woolmark invited us to collaborate, because wool was the first fabric I was draping in. "Wool is no longer something you just wear in winter, because now we have fine Merino wool. And it's not just for daytime - wool is also a great fabric for red-carpet (wear) too." Bold, bright colours comprising blue, jade and pink can be expected by Australian consumers, something which Mouret feels complements the Australian way of life. "The other great thing about wool is that it absorbs colour, even very bright colours. And colour therapy relates to that part of the world, like Australia, where the climate is hotter, and is a way to face life. You feel better when you wear colour." For AWI, Mouret's journey to Australia does not end with his collection launch. His visit also coincides with the Australian regional final of the International Woolmark Prize, to be held in Sydney on 16 July. Mouret will sit on the judging panel alongside Harper's BAZAAR Australia Editor-in-Chief Kellie Hush, Vogue Australia Editor-in-Chief Edwina McCann, David Jones General Manager for Menswear Deb Foreman and David Jones General Manager for Womenswear Sophie Clark. Returning to this year's judging panel, Ms Hush said the partnership between AWI and Roland Mouret was a great reflection of Australian wool's reputation on the global stage. "It's fantastic such a big international designer is working with Australian wool and coming here to promote it," she said. "It says a lot about what Australian wool is doing overseas and the fact that these names want to work with the Australian Wool Innovation." With the International Woolmark Prize designed to generate long- term demand for Australian Merino wool by connecting emerging designers, markets and consumers, welcoming Mouret onto the prize's judging panel will provide this year's nominees the extra incentive to design to impress. "Roland Mouret is a leader in design globally and one of the true craftsmen in the world of fashion," AWI CEO Stuart McCullough said. "His use of wool is an inspiration to many designers and having him on the panel in Australia will provide these young designers with valuable insight and advice from one of the best in the business."
