Fashion from Fleece: 200 Years of Australian Wool in Fashion
Fashion from fleece celebrated two centuries of Australian wool in fashion and charted the journey of Australian merino from the pastoral boom of the 1800s to the high-tech fabric innovations of today. The exhibition included newly commissioned designs by Martin Grant, Collette Dinnigan, Josh Goot, Easton Pearson, Akira Isogawa and Proenza Schouler, modern and vintage wool garments by Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani and Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcons along with historical material from the Powerhouse Museum’s collection.
