If you love fashion, design or textiles, or you simply enjoy appreciating beautiful things, the Wool Modern exhibition is not to be missed. The Wool Modern exhibition, which is part of His Royal Highness (HRH) The Prince of Wales' campaign for wool, aims to showcase avant garde uses of wool in fashion and design in the 21st Century.
The Wool Modern exhibition is currently showing at QVB
The Wool Modern exhibition is composed of 68 items in total; 14 of them have been specially chosen to exhibit at the Queen Victory Building (QVB), level 1, throughout May. Following the exhibition in Sydney, Shanghai will be the next destination and ultimately to New York.
For a better understanding of the essence of the exhibition, there's nothing better than knowing what's in the curator's mind; Wool Modern Curator Charlotte Lurot says, "I think what we were exploring with this show was how extraordinarily diverse this fibre has become across the board in the creative industries, so not just in fashion, but in product design, interior design, lighting, even in video."
All the displayed clothes are diverse and unique in design; they are graceful, delicate and exquisite. Design works of the well-renowned designers are displayed, including Vivienne Westwood's Prince Charming wool coat, John Galliano's men's ready to wear creation, David Koma's off the shoulder black dress, Alexander McQueen's gold embellished asymmetric bustier dress, and much more.
I was amazed to see all the creative applications from a group of talented designers, as they bring out the greatest beauty of this natural fabric. Additionally, the precision and techniques reveal the curve of a woman's body. The overcoats and dresses are charming and aesthetically appealing, particularly those are delicately mixed with beadings.
As the winter is setting in soon, come and visit the exhibition to delve into the world of modern fashion.You'll feel the warmth when you look at all the innovative uses of wool in design. As QVB is an iconic shopping destination with historic heritage, you can continue to stroll through the shops and enjoy lunch or afternoon tea at cafes. All these wonderful experiences will certainly make your day.
