Wang’s Fall 2012 Catwalk featured a total of 31 looks, of which 20 featured Merino elements. "Australian Merino wool played an important role this season helping to conceptualize a play on the contrast of the richness of wool bonded with a high-gloss lacquered effect, portraying structure and ease" says Wang.

Wang’s amazing use of Australian Merino, is why The Woolmark Company is pleased to partner with Wang. The show marked The Woolmark Company’s 5th season with Alexander Wang. Each season, Wang consistently explores new innovative uses for Merino, resulting in exceptionally executed garments on the catwalk.
